It’s no secret that I am obsessed with Claire’s home, a stylish and characterful Edwardian semi in Moseley, one of the greenest and most quirky and magical suburbs of Birmingham. (Can you tell I used to live in Moseley and quite like it there?!).

A couple of weeks ago we took you on a tour of her downstairs, and today we’re showing you around some of the upstairs. It’s so calming and peaceful and serene that I’d quite like to curl up in the middle of that beaut four poster bed. And because Adam took a bazillion gorgeous shots of Claire’s home, we’ll show you around the rest of the upstairs and the garden over the next couple of weeks.

Over to Claire.

Front bedroom

This bedroom is painted the same as the hallway – Homebase Putty. The bed is the Coco from and the light fitting is the Z1 pendant – and a bit of a splurge! It divides opinion but I love it. We had the wardrobes built in and they are painted a Little Greene colour but I have honestly forgotten which shade!
The pictures and the cushions are from Neptune. The bed linen is the Avignon from The White Company. The armchair was a gift from my work colleagues as an engagement present. The bedside tables were from BHS Home when it was still going.

Main bathroom

This bathroom was two rooms which we knocked into one. The flooring is wood effect porcelain tiles. The bath was from Victoria Plumbing and the mirror was from Maisons Du Monde. I found the bath caddy on eBay. The paint colour is Perfectly Taupe by Dulux.

Back bedroom

I obsessed over this bed for a long time before I bit the bullet and bought it! It is the Beaumont from The White Company and I love it! I had the chaise longue bespoke made by a local company Park Lane Furnishings. The side table is the Ridge Stool from Lombok Furniture. The bedside tables are the Douglas from Swoon Editions and the bedding is from Dip and Doze.

The chest of drawers were from a trade supplier through my work and the plant is a beauty from Isherwood and Co. The paint colour is Timeless by Dulux.
