'I wanted this to really reflect our style'

'I wanted this to really reflect our style'


Posted 12th Jul 2018

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.
