Hi
Was browsing and came across this house and was wondering how I could recreate this look particularly the distressed paint effect on the walls

Wow, that is fancy. I would have spent some of the decoration money to remove the outside cladding though.

EvaBee Tue 16-Jun-15 12:29:21

Gorgeous inside.

EvaBee Tue 16-Jun-15 12:30:26

although I bet their bathroom get soaked when they have a shower

Lollipopgirl8 Tue 16-Jun-15 12:39:35

I know i just love the french chic/industrial/shabby look

wowfudge Tue 16-Jun-15 20:34:47

I was thinking the distressed paint effect probably comes from that stupid shower or the cracked wooden wash bowel grin

I'm very much a practical person and that place would drive me crackers!

Strongly suspect they have cleaners - the only thing in a cupboard is the telly. The kitchen is a muck trap with no extractor. Perhaps they just make sarnies and cups of tea? No wardrobes in the bathroom. My teeth are on edge just looking at it.

I love the look but the 1st thing I would do is out carpets in

Lollipopgirl8 Tue 16-Jun-15 21:57:41

Each to their own I guess I like this type of style though but I guess it has been dressed for sale..

I'm not overly keen on the bathroom/kitchen it's not to my taste I was thinking the living areas

HoneyDragon Tue 16-Jun-15 22:00:54

Its brown.

Brown, brown, brown. Brown.

FinallyLearntToBudget Tue 16-Jun-15 22:02:43

It is very brown.

But I like it!

Especially the dining room.

It looks very very interior mags. Wonder if it does belong to a designer of some sort. Surely a 'normal' person couldn't live like that.

How do we find out where it is / price etc? as if I could afford it

Waitingfordolly Tue 16-Jun-15 22:04:39

I was going to say the beige-ness of it is too much for me!

StrumpersPlunkett Tue 16-Jun-15 22:05:23

I really really don't get the needing to live in a different era, this is what it feels like to me.
There is no stuff that makes it a home at all.

StrumpersPlunkett Tue 16-Jun-15 22:10:53

now I would love to get my hands on this
So much potential to make a pretty cottage.

anotherdayanothersquabble Tue 16-Jun-15 22:12:12

I love it and have pinned it to my mood wall for my new house. (Not really but if I had a mood wall and any remote clue / motivation to pin, I would! Also, new house is much darker so it wouldn't really work!)

Pipbin Tue 16-Jun-15 22:16:40

The exterior is not what I expected from the interior. Beautiful but impractical I think.
Also, they have clearly spent many many pounds getting the look just so. why move?

Pipbin Tue 16-Jun-15 22:21:57

Hmmm - it's been on since February and they bought it in 2013. Why bother doing all that work if you are going to move?
I venture that no one actually live there.

Pipbin Tue 16-Jun-15 22:28:11

And did anyone else notice the dog. Is he real?

Lollipopgirl8 Tue 16-Jun-15 22:28:16

I think it's in shoreham priced at 500000 ish

Pipbin Tue 16-Jun-15 22:30:05

The dog?

Pipbin Tue 16-Jun-15 22:30:50

Lollipopgirl8 Tue 16-Jun-15 22:31:27

Pipbin that's what I thought too I really want the look but would love a sort of georgian/early victorian/barn conversion type place to do it in! It would be a forever home place not somewhere for just two years!

Lollipopgirl8 Tue 16-Jun-15 22:31:45

Plus a neptune kitchen

Pipbin Tue 16-Jun-15 22:39:09

If it went on the market in February then it is less that two years even. However, look at how much they bought it for. If they sell it for the asking price they will make over £200,000. It was bought to do up and see on I think.
