'I wanted this to really reflect our style'

'I wanted this to really reflect our style'


Posted 12th July

From vintage furniture, Scandinavian chic and a colour palette of aqua, Isabelle Leonard's townhouse has oodles of personality

A bit about me

I’m Isabelle Leonard, a school reception teacher, and I live with my husband Phil who is an ICT support engineer.

Where I live

Our home is a three-bedroom townhouse in Bicester, Oxfordshire. We moved in in the summer of 2012.

What I wanted to change

We loved everything about the house. The original décor wasn’t to our taste, but we could live with it while we decorated.

How I made it my own

I adore so many different interior styles so I have tried to combine bits and pieces from each of them in my home.

My favourite part

That’s difficult! I love all of the rooms we have decorated, but I think the living room is pretty special as it’s where we spend most of our time.

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