Colorful Victorian

Happy Friday! Let's start the weekend off with a colorful Victorian home featured on Livingetc. The fabulous home belongs to textile designer Chrissie Probert Jones. The modern-retro space has an open-plan basement, a kitchen-diner, conservatory, sitting room and office, five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Wow...all that space and a conservatory! Just the word conservatory sounds fancy. You could tell your guests, "Oh yes, welcome to my con-ser-va-tory" (said with a British accent of course).

I can't get enough of the bright textiles, vintage styling and welcoming staircase. This one is definitely going in the inspiration folder under "future home."
