Today is an extra exciting house crush, because we get to introduce a new convert to the dark side. Whoop! Aimee has been experimenting with dark hues in her home and lucky it looks fab (obviously) and she’s so pleased with the results that she’s sharing them with us in a house crush post. I love her hallway – no surprises there because it’s actually the same colour as mine (snap!) – but also her clever DIY ideas, lighting tricks, vignettes and especially Archie the pug. In our Q&A she revealed her epiphany moment coming over to the dark side, as well as ideas for really stylish, achievable makeovers that everybody can pull off. Check out her continued experiments with the dark side on her profile at{Aimee Kilford}.

Thank you Aimee for your photos, and most of all for your very kind words. Too sweet of you – I’m actually going to have to swear that you weren’t paid to say such things! (Honest promise).

Welcome to my pad. It’s a Victorian terraced house. I live with my husband Ollie and our pug Archie in the heart of Salisbury, Wiltshire. It’s a beautiful and historical city. We love to go for walks in the summer evenings along the cobbled streets near the cathedral. There is such a variety of different style of houses and interiors that I can’t help sneaking a glimpse through the windows as we pass by. We are close to the Wiltshire countryside too so we have the best of both worlds. Many a weekend is spent on leisurely walks admiring the views of Laverstock Down, away from the hustle and bustle.

My style in 5 words… eclectic, traditional, rustic, bold and I’m a bit of a magpie. (Much to the dismay of my mother and now my husband! I confess I’m a born hoarder and collector. I love a bit of everything really.)
