'We've given the space a total refresh'


Posted 10th Jul 2018

Relocating from their south London flat to Buckinghamshire, Elizabeth Smith and husband, Alex, have made their home work for them

A bit about me

Hi, I’m Elizabeth Smith, a junior merchandiser for a high street retailer, and I’m married to Alex, a digital marketing manager. We have a border terrier called Jimmy.

Where I live

My home is a three-bedroom mid-terrace house in Chesham, Buckinghamshire. We bought the property back in 2015.

What I wanted to change

Luckily the house didn’t need any structural work doing, but every room had to be repainted to freshen up the décor.

How I made it my own

I’ve introduced plenty of personality through colour and accessories and have been clever with the space to create the best layout.

My favourite part

The dining area is the social hub of the house and it’s a great room for entertaining.

You can find out more about Elizabeth's space refresh by purchasing our July 2018 issue, available as a digital download for only £0.99 here.
