Nicola Rasores-Parry has embraced colour to create the ever-changing displays in her 1930s property which is constantly evolving

A bit about me

I’m Nicola Rasores- Parry, and I live with my husband David, our children, Noah, six and Beth, four, plus guinea pigs Weasley and Luna.

Where I live

My home is a three bedroom 1930s semi in Chester, which we bought back in January 2012.

What I wanted to change

The house felt a bit tired with lots of magnolia walls. It needed some character and vibrancy.

How I made it my own

We added bold wallpaper and feature walls, along with mid-century furniture and lots of colourful collections on display.

My favourite part

It’s a toss-up between the dining room and living room. The light in the dining room in the afternoon makes the colours resonate, so it has a really nice warmth to it.
