i’ve finally found my forever home

‘My family call me the wallpaper queen, but it really has transformed the house’ Kitchen ‘We have a brick shed attached to the back of ours and our neighbour’s house that can’t come down, which meant I couldn’t increase the floor plan of the kitchen so I had to be clever with what we had. Lots of storage was at the top of the wish list, so I turned the old bathroom into a larder. I wanted a streamlined look with the cabinets and chose white Wren units for the top – so the space didn’t feel too dark – and deep drawers under the hob for pan storage, a hot water tap, and a hidden pull-out bin.’ MY STORY I’ve moved over 30 times as my parents used to do up houses to…

welcome to my home

A BIT ABOUT ME I’m Emily Cheyne, 40, @1930home and I’m the Assistant Director at Essex Fire Service. I live with my partner, Mike Guess, 37, and my children, Oliver, eight, and Joseph, six, and Mike’s children, William, 11; Henry and Arthur, both seven, and our cat, Queen B. WHERE I LIVE My home is a four-bedroom 1930s semi in South Woodham Ferrers, Essex. I moved here in August 2017. WHAT I WANTED TO CHANGE There was Artex everywhere, even on the staircase walls.

HOW I MADE IT MY OWN I moved the bathroom upstairs and added a two-storey extension including two extra bedrooms. Then I decorated…

choose wallpaper the right

Old-school wallpaper needs paste, a pasting table and time waiting for the paper to soak, but new methods have completely changed, making papering a far easier job. Paste-the-wall products are quick and easy as you simply paste onto the wall and then slide the paper in place. Peel-and-stick wallpaper is easy to use as there’s no paste. Peel off the backing and simply stick the paper onto the wall. It doesn’t slide for positioning, but it can be peeled off and repositioned to get it right. Mural wallpaper is a single image that completely covers the wall, usually with an option to design your own. This is the ultimate in wall coverings and comes ready to paste or with sticky backing. Whatever style you choose, the wall needs to be clean and free…
