Take a tour around a detached 1940s house


A five-bedroom 1940s detached house in Hertfordshire filled with style ideas on mixing rich materials and contemporary style.


Living room

Create a warm and relaxing feel in your living room with a rich mix of chocolate brown, rusty red and a fresh green. To complement the look, go for dark furniture and a pale neutral carpet to lift the scheme.


Dining room

Create a warm and elegant dining room centred around a classic wooden table and formal leather chairs. Purple accessories complete and complement the wall colour.



The huge window and fabrics in rich colours give a dramatic feel to this bedroom, complemented by the dark brown leather bed. Chocolate accessories add a sophisticated element, and the whole room is then softened by using a warm floral wallpaper on the feature wall behind the bed. 


Guest bedroom

Large freestanding furniture and a wrought-iron bedstead are the basis for creating a room with a French antique look. Choose a sophisticated shade of soft lilac for the walls and accessories to add a feminine touch. 


Children's bedroom

Choose stylish white furniture to create a bedroom that a girl won't outgrow, then use accessories to accommodate her changing tastes. She might like pink now, but a duvet cover is easier to change than a bed if she decides she doesn't like pink anymore!



Create an opulent feel to your bathroom by choosing mosaic tiles and complementary wall and floor tiles in a soft caramel colour. Add a contemporary freestanding bath and stylish chrome taps for added style.
