Faced with an abundance of beige, first time buyer Yasmin Fatollahy has brought a punchy palette to her Edwardian terraced house

A bit about me

I’m Yasmin Fatollahy, a financial services analyst, and I live with my long haired dachshund Cyrus.

Where I live

My home is a two-bedroom Edwardian terraced house in Tyne & Wear. I’ve lived here since September 2017.

What I wanted to change

A young couple had already renovated it and replaced the old-fashioned kitchen and bathroom, but everything else was just a beige blank canvas.

How I made it my own

I wanted to keep the classic traditional features of the house but add a modern twist with pops of colour and some Mid-Century styling.

My favourite part

I love spending time in the living room as it’s south facing and the cheerful colours make me feel so happy!

You can find out more about Yasmin's first home by purchasing our July 2019 issue, available as a digital download for £1.99 here.
