Having fallen head-over-heels for this house from afar, Catherine Kibble made an offer. There was just one little problem - it wasn't for sale.
A bit about me
I’m Catherine Kibble and I live with my husband Jonathan, and our nine-year-old twins, Oliver and Amelie.
Where I live
Our home is a fourbedroomed, 1970s detached house in Yarm, in the North East of England. We have lived here for nearly four years.
What I wanted to change
There wasn’t one room that didn’t need updating, but the kitchen was particularly bad – the units were hanging off the walls!
How I made it my own
I gave it a country cottage look to make it feel warm, homely and inviting.
My favourite part
It’s got to be our beautiful kitchen/ diner. Knocking the walls through has made it a lovely light and airy space.
