A chance to Refresh
& reboot
Interior designer Jane Cappleman tells us how she got creative during lockdown
After weeks of lockdown I think most of us have been able to focus much more on the interior of our homes - and, if you
are lucky to have one - the garden. Personally I have enjoyed addressing the small jobs around the house which I
have put off for months due to lack of time. The sense of achievement I have gained by sorting out cupboards and drawers, and finding new storage solutions to make every day life easier is amazing. It sounds ridiculous but taking apart the hall cupboard and adding proper shelving recycled from an old
shoe stacking system allows so many more shoes to be stored. Remarkably it has remained tidy for more than two weeks as it is so much easier to use!
I have, like many of you, picked up a paintbrush and freshened up parts of the house. Unfortunately I now want to completely redesign the sitting room as ideally I would like to introduce panelling. We have now been here almost 25 years, initially intending to stay no longer than five years. Like many people at the time we wanted to turn a dilapidated Victorian house into a desirable family home and move up the property ladder. However life, money
and children changed the plan. Happily we were able to extend and we now have the home and living space we always wanted
Before lockdown we
were addressing a leak
in the shower and tiles
were damaged in the process so we removed them and took the shower out. This was pretty bad timing as we couldn’t buy the necessary building materials to carry out any work in the bathroom so this will now take priority as the lockdown eases and my sitting room will be put on
