Boutique-hotel and bungalow are two phrases that don’t often go together. But Dan’s effortlessly stylish interior is bursting with a coolly classic feel that we can’t get enough of. Take a look.
“I live in a 1970s bungalow,” says Dan. “When designing the interior it was important for me to update the property and create a space that was modern, clean and stylish.
“I like vertical and horizontal lines and a space that is minimalist and clutter-free. I work long shifts as a nurse so I wanted somewhere I can relax on my days off and in the evenings.
“My colour scheme for my home is mainly grey and navy. Since moving in last August, I’ve worked hard to modernise it into the sociable, open-plan place it is today.”
It’s easy to see why Dan’s so pleased with his handiwork. The pristine space wouldn’t look out of place listed on Airbnb – just look at those plump pillows!
“My new Fauxwood blinds contribute to the look I’m trying to achieve,” says Dan. “It’s a small property, so having blinds that fit into the recess of the window is great. Curtains would make the rooms feel smaller. And they’re also practical for the kitchen and bathroom.
“I like the versatility of the blinds; being able to adjust the amount of natural light you let in. I had never consider Fauxwood blinds before in any of my past properties, but after seeing them in situ in my friends’ homes, I knew they were a must-have for my new space and I am certainly not disappointed.
“I found Web-Blinds after an internet search, and found it reassuring that they were part of the Hillarys group. I instantly thought of great quality, and the pricing was superb. And considering they were a made-to-measure product, delivery was so speedy.
“I watched the videos on the site to learn how to measure and fit. I fitted them on my own and it was straightforward and simple, and I’m no DIY expert.”
So there you have it. If we didn’t know better, we’d be asking Dan when we could check in to his five-star place. But unfortunately this whistle-stop tour will have to do.
