Gabrielle Blackman home

Thrilled to have a guest blogger today – I honestly think this is a first for me!

A very warm welcome to Annie Kruse…

Hi this is Annie from Stylejuicer and I’m delighted to write a guest post for the lovely Alison on her fabulous blog.

This is the home of Gabrielle Blackman, UK TV presenter on DIY SOS and interior designer.

For her period home in Bristol she chose to combine a raw, almost unfinished look with some elegant pieces of furniture in accent colours like the gorgeous mustard yellow sofa and chair.

A dominant feature is the deliberately roughly painted white wooden floor reflecting light and giving it a real arty bohemian studio feel.

I almost expect to see an easel surrounded by pots of paint and a muse lounging on one of those inviting period armchairs.

Her soft colour palette of different shades of grey is complimented by vintage furniture and flea market finds, some of which are painted (never perfectly) in complimenting colours like navy and green.

Her decorating solution suits the period style of the property perfectly and her elegant interior design makes the space feel much loved and lived-in.

A lovely bohemian family home.

Wishing you all an inspired day. Annie x
