A Dark & Dreamy Victorian – House Call

Name: Ruth

Location: Manchester, England

I bought my first home a year ago, where I now live with my partner Adam. This came after 16 years of house-sharing so I couldn’t wait to unleash my creativity on it after living so long with magnolia walls! My house is a Victorian two bed terrace just outside the centre of Manchester, England.

I had an extremely limited budget, so I have sourced lots of pieces on Gumtree and eBay, and friends and family have also kindly donated some items of furniture (I transported the chandelier on the megabus all the way from my friend’s house in London!). I learnt how to make some basic cushions and lampshades and used fabric on old canvas frames to create wall hangings.
