Our Bright Orangery

Once the main rooms of the house were completed (you can see all of them here) we began work building our Orangery from scratch. We knew we wanted a light, bright room – and an orangery rather than a conservatory. The former has foundations and feels more like a sturdy room […]

The Snug

Our snug is one of the rooms that had the biggest transformation and I had such a strong vision of what it would like that I couldn’t wait to get started. It was referred to as The Snug before work even began on it as we knew it was going […]

The Room That’s Made For Winter

I’ve often thought that rooms have seasons and our Dining Room is definitely the room that’s made for winter. We’re definitely going to carry on our LA love of Thanksgiving and I’m hoping we can enjoy some raucous dinner parties as well as a big family Christmas lunch in here […]

The Room I Relax In

In the colder months, nothing is more indulgent than a hot bath in the evening. I could stay in there for hours- bubbles, books, glass of red- and when Honor is asleep then I do just that. Our Master Bathroom is the room I relax in; it was such a […]

Woven materials have long signalled the […]

The Smallest Room That Makes A Real Statement

The downstairs loo is the smallest space in the whole house but we did a lot of work to it. What I like about this room is that we kept the original sink and loo; I wanted to keep or re-use as many of the existing features as possible and […]

My Mary Poppins Room

It’s time for another room reveal (I hope you’re all following @LouiseRoeHome?) and this is one I was most excited to see come together as I had imagined it for so long: my Mary Poppins room! For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to create an eaves bedroom […]

Our Drawing Room Reveal

Here it is guys: our Drawing Room reveal! This is the grandest room in the house with the highest ceilings and most ornate cornicing. It was added in the Victorian era (so, a little later than the rest of the house) and it was used to welcome and impress guests. […]
