Many of the questions you contact me with are about specific rooms in my home so here's a one-stop-post containing all the information I can summon up in one place about our Modern Country Family room, which leads straight off our living room.
This is the room we started with, a grotty, dated kitchen, cheap laminate floors and a fireplace that stuck out like a sore thumb...
Yet, even in the midst of all the mess, we could see that this room could be given a new life. The light streams in through the enormous sash window, the ceilings are high and the proportions generous.
