Stripping out the old-fashioned interior and adding an extension has enabled Siobhan and Joe Burke to revive their 1960s house
A bit about me
I’m Siobhan Burke, a project manager and I’m married to Joe, an architect. We live here with our cat, Marco.
Where I live
My home is a three-bedroom 1960s build ex-council house, in Leytonstone, north east London. We bought it in August 2017.
What I wanted to change
We wanted to change everything! It was an advantage that the house needed a full refurbishment as it meant that everything could be updated.
How I made it my own
We followed the 1960s-style through to the interiors and added a touch of Scandi.
My favourite part
We love the downstairs living, dining and kitchen area. It’s spacious, light and great for entertaining – especially with the amazing bi-fold doors.
