Houzz TV: Tour a Victorian Home Updated With Colour and Storage
After moving into their Victorian home, this couple in their thirties needed help adding colour, storage and features for entertaining guests. Not knowing where to begin, they searched Houzz for help. A Houzz concierge – part of the Live Connections feature available to Houzz Pro members – matched their project needs to, and connected them with, designer Josephine Lecoufle-Vinet.
Josephine brought in warm blues and greens to add bold colour without it feeling cold. In the kitchen, new cabinets add storage and style, while a short peninsula projecting from a bank of navy blue cabinets creates an intimate breakfast area and a spot for guests to gather around during parties. Lively patterned floor tiles perk up the atmosphere.
In the dining room, wallpaper mimics the look of wood panelling to create texture and cosiness around a large table, where the couple enjoy playing board games with friends. A bespoke wood media unit in the adjoining living area features open and closed storage.
Josephine gave the couple’s bathroom a seaside vibe with wavy blue wallpaper and teal fish scale tiles in the shower. And wallpaper on the ceiling in the warm green bedroom adds a fun element that maintains a cosy vibe.
