Empty house makeover in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. (A 6 bedroom house.)

I was asked to do this house makeover by some local developers I have worked with a few times. It was unique, and they only had a tiny budget for furniture, window dressings and accessories – only £6,500 plus my shopping and styling costs. I had twelve days to furnish the entire house. Some of the furniture choices weren’t perfect, but cost and availability were the priority. Twelve rooms for £6,500 is almost impossible. (But not quite!)  The Estate Agent calculated that the house makeover (- ie the furnishings alone) had increased the value of the house by £100,000.

Here are the results:
