Thanks so much, it is fabulous. And as you say, very affordable. Not entirely sure I can carry it off in this house, but always happy to see other people having beautiful things!

I agree, I always start with the house as the starting point -- it usually tells you what it needs or is willing to accept! Good luck with your project.

Hi Colleen, this is an original floor from the time the house was built (c. 1910). There are companies that make replicas but it depends where you are located — I'm in the United Kingdom so not sure if I'm able to advise you on this.

Try the Original Tile Company - Victorian Floors. They are located in the UK, but there are companies in the U.S. that carry Original Tile Company products.

Hi Craig, the floor tiles are Edwardian encaustic tiles, original to the house. You could create something similar using tiles from Living House: https://www.livinghouse.co.uk/acatalog/Victorian-geometric-tiles.html

Hi! Not sure which bit you are referring to: the area immediately next to the front door is made from Victorian / Edwardian encaustic tiles ( sometimes called Minton tiles). There's also a small Persian style rug on the wooden floor but this isn't really suitable for using as an entrance mat. Normally I would suggest sinking an area of coir matting cut to size (coirmats.co.uk) into your flooring, next to the front. door, but this wasn't possible here due to the tiles so instead we placed a sturdy mat exterior mat outside the front door. Hope that helps?

I agree, stay consistent with the curtain length and positioning of the curtain poles. If the curtains can be pulled back clear of the smaller windows (wall space permitting) it will make them appear larger.

Hi smoore999,

This is a very common question, and the best advise would be to go for full length curtains at all windows, as this will elongate the windows and make them look longer, you could consider having a net or voile inside the smaller windows for privacy however, or even a small roman blind with a sheer, so you still have lots of light, we have a really helpful measuring guide, click here. Or do get in contact for more help from our design consultants.

Hope that helps!

Hello Nikki,
Test the Builders Clean in a small area first, then use on the whole area once you're happy it doesn't damage the surface. You cannot use this product on limestone as its acid based. If this gets rid of the "cloudiness" on the surface, you could use Lithofin Colour Intensifier or Lithofin Stainstop, these are designed to impregnate into the stone, not sit on the surface so you can walk in socked feet on the tiles after a couple of hours. Call Lithofin on 01962 732126 and they can talk you through the process.

I would also recommend Lithofin for deep cleaning and sealing slate. When it comes to sealing, you can do half first and the other half later, so that you can continue to walk across whichever bit is dry. Just follow the lines of the grout rather than stopping half way across a tile. The cats would have to be kept in or temporarily relocated though!

Hi Banana! The paint used here was Little Greene Slaked Lime I believe. The pages of this copy of A Apple Pie were a bit yellow (yours might be different) so the black frames worked well to separate out the yellow-y and pink-y tones while echoing the lettering. These were standard good quality ready made frames from a framing shop, so not Ikea-cheap, but not very expensive either. Hope that helps.
