"When we started decorating our new home I thought neutral, minimal, Scandi. But it turns out I meant colourful, cluttered and cosy," she says.

The house mixes fun artwork and pops of colour alongside cosy soft furnishings and retro touches.

The stairs, with hand-painted accents, lead to a gallery wall at the landing.

"Really pleased with how the hallway stairs turned out - tester pots and wall stickers," she explains.

Along with painting and wallpapering the couple has been doing much of the work themselves.

She explains "My old Ikea chair was scratched to pieces by the cat so I got handy with some cheap fabric, a staple gun and YouTube videos."

The cushions are from H&M.
