Whilst away on my summer holiday travels I found myself watching a particular lifestyle tv show from Canada. A couple of brothers come in and do up a family home to raise it’s sales value so the family can move on up the chain. The formula is much the same – the property is unbelievably crowded with furniture and toys; the decor is sadly mismatched etc. etc. The brothers do of course bring the place up to very modern and fabulous standard — particularly the washrooms. I am fascinated why in the US and Canada, they have two wash basins in a cabinet with worktops – it’s called a ‘vanity’ over there. I do have very modern bathroom and ensuite in my house, having seen a fabulous showroom near my office. I have loved the transformation every time I use either off them and love showing them off to visitors. Kitchen and reception rooms next!
