Home tour of an Edwardian terrace with pretty festive touches

This Christmas I was lucky enough to write about a beautiful period home for Reclaim magazine so I thought I would share a little about this pretty property with you over the festive season.

I first discovered Henrietta’s beautiful period home while I was browsing on Instagram. The impressive stained glass windows at the front door really caught my eye and I’ve been a fan ever since.

Her Instagram account is @the_house_at_no15 and it’s where she shares photos of gorgeous period features and colourful interiors, so be sure to check it out.

I love the way she has decorated her interior with heritage colours and plenty of red and gold pops in her accessories. This works well with her festive decorations, with warm white lights on the Christmas tree, berries and toadstools.

The green paint colours on the walls of her sitting room and the master bedroom make the perfect backdrop for a festive interior. Henrietta painted all the built-in storage cabinets that she fitted using the same colour paint as the walls to create a seamless look.

I love how Henrietta has used candlesticks in each room of her home to bring a cosy glow and a festive feel. It’s such a subtle detail but it’s something that anyone can recreate to get that Christmassy vibe in each room. Just remember not to leave lit candles unattended.

More green hues can be found in the kitchen, which Henrietta upcycled with forest green paint and new handles. It makes the cupboards look more traditional and the red rug and accessories give the room a slightly festive feel.

In other areas of the house, Henrietta has chosen calming colours with a warm undertone. I would love to wake up on Christmas morning in the bedroom below – the subtle colours make the most of the high ceilings and period features, with the original fireplace taking centre stage with a couple of lit tapers.

If you want to read more about how Henrietta renovated her property and all the pretty decor choices she’s made, you can still buy a copy of Issue 76 of Reclaim online. It’s the Christmas issue so there are plenty of vintage and festive details for you to enjoy throughout the whole issue of the magazine. And be sure to check out Henrietta’s Instagram account @the_house_at_no15 for more inspiration.
