If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll have noticed some pretty big changes in Baylyn House the past year.
Looking back at pictures from my Christmas 2015 decor post really makes me realise quite how far we’ve come in such a short period of time….& how I really need to stop decorating!!
I had the absolute honour of being the cover girl in the June 2016 edition of ‘Style At Home’ magazine with a 6 page spread. The images were shot at the end of 2015, but my gosh how things have changed in that time! It’s like a completely different house & I couldn’t be more proud of all the hard work that’s paid off to give our ‘dream home’.
What has changed in Baylyn House this year?
Our biggest project has been turning our leaking unusable (too hot in the summer & too cold in the winter!) conservatory in to an extension with a proper roof. This has completely changed the entire layout of the downstairs of our home & I honestly couldn’t be happier with it.
You can read through this makeover week by week below –
This meant that our conservatory went from this
We then moved what was our lounge, below
in to a new dining room (including the addition of a new window to increase natural light)
& finally what was our old dining room
became our playroom
Upstairs we’ve had a bit of a change around too with Elsa moving in to what was our neglected spare bedroom.
Which was transformed into this.
Rory then moved in to what was Elsa’s old bedroom
Which now looks like this thanks to GLTC’s gorgeous grey star range.
& finally what was Rory’s bedroom
became a spare bedroom for guests/hosting students.
Plans for 2017?
Not too much, but this time last year we had no intention of any of the above so lets wait & see!
I’m turning what was Joe’s gym in to ‘The Home That Made Me HQ’/an office in January (my new shutters have been delivered & will be up in the next few days!) & would love to do something with the playroom but am waiting for Rory to get out of the messy phase, although I have a feeling I’m going to be waiting for a long time…boys!
