    Thanks for your questions. The Old Radiator Company supplied the radiators and the flooring colour is a bespoke mix: one off for this project, so not an easy answer there I'm afraid!

    I didn't realise there was an option to create your own colour? I am just about to buy the same floor and have opted for larger boards for a slightly more modern look. Would you agree?

    No, the flooring was finished and oiled on site. You would use a bevel edge if the boards are pre finished

    Hi, thank you for your question. The herringbone boards are 600x200mm. To try and help you scale the image, the hall way in the photo is around 4m square.

    Hi, Thanks for your question. The flooring is grey oiled Oak parquet flooring supplied by Bohemian Works, from the Czech Republic. A Great company, not sure if they work directly with the end consumer, but we are happy to help if you need us too. Dyfed

The Victorian Emporium added this to 9 Ways to Get the Most From Traditional Radiators26 January 2016

Go electricSome buildings, such as annexes or rooms above garages, aren’t on mains gas, so you’ll need to use an electrical adaptor if you want to have a traditional cast iron radiator. These adaptors have a good heat output and look attractive without needing to be connected to the gas supply. This means you can move the radiators around within the room. Remember, though, that they’re very heavy and should still be secured against a wall.

VORBILD Architecture added this to Ask an Expert: How to Mix Styles and Eras in Your Home29 April 2015

How do I add modern lighting into a period room?A super-contemporary light fitting hanging from this gorgeous Victorian corniced ceiling works because its complexity complements everything else in the room: the owners have replaced its historic counterpart with a piece that’s equally complex and detailed. Choosing such a light fitting in place of its more traditional cousin opens up more possibilities, too, since, once you change one of a room’s key features – perhaps the fireplace, cornice, window, flooring or, as here, the central pendant light – it will feel natural to continue down this route with other elements. This room feels light, elegant and, in places, almost austere, but all the details combined show a refined and grown-up character, where less is definitely more.Learn what to consider before hanging pendant lights

Have fun!Who says chandeliers have to be grand? Comprising lightbulbs with wings, caught in flight, this one is as witty as it is striking. The multiple light sources cascading down mimic the structure of a classic chandelier, but this piece is anything but trad.Discover the bare-faced brilliance of exposed bulbs
