Case study: Restoring Lansdowne

Seven years ago, Kristine Hall and her husband, Dan, moved into a Victorian terraced house in a state of disrepair, with the aim to restore the building to its former glory.

“In terms of my vision, it was really important to me that we reinstate original features wherever possible and keep the bones of the house much as they would have been when it was built”


The project took more than six years to complete; Kristine and Dan did much of the work themselves at weekends and in the evenings after work. When they first bought the house it was clear that most of it needed a full brick-to-brick renovation.

The pair began the project by refurbishing two of the bedrooms, and for Kristine it was crucial that they retained the essence of their Victorian home.

“I love mid-century style, design classics, industrial vibes, and characterful vintage furniture pieces.”


To complete their master bedroom, Kristine was looking for a Victorian hospital-style bed to make the most of its restored period features. She found the Cornish Bed Company online.

“The Cornish Bed Company appealed to me for a few reasons: its beds are hand crafted using traditional methods, it’s based in the UK and it has a great reputation for quality,”

“The bed we bought (a super-kingsize Maud) fits exactly with my vision for the space. The matte bronze finish looks very romantic in this setting, but the design is timeless and would work equally well with lots of interior styles, from rustic farmhouse to urban loft."

“The service from the Cornish Bed Company was great - the team sent me samples of finish options, delivered on schedule, and the bed is clearly very well made."

Kristine and Dan completed work on the house in 2017. You can follow Restoring Lansdowne on Instagram here or read the full article in our blog.
