Inside House Voted One Of Best In Britain

Inside House Voted One Of Best In Britain

This pretty standard looking three-bedroom semi-detached house has been voted one of the most beautiful in the UK.

The house was named Cardiff's winner in BBC's Best House in Town for its unique and quirky interiors.

Speaking about her gaff Miffy told Wales Online: "I don't know why I've won to be honest, I just do what I do, but I'm really proud and thankful.

"People have said they think I've won because my house is unique but that's quite a weird thing to hear because surely everybody's house is unique."

Miffy has also shared a few tips on how to get your own house looking its best.

She explained: "When I think I know what I would like in a room, I have found my influences, I will start making mood boards and initially find different versions of the look I want on Pinterest.

"But I'm more of a grower, things come to me slowly and ideas start growing and changing.

"All the rooms have started from different inspirations with the core being that you have to love it.

"So in the bedroom I found the wallpaper and it all developed from that."

Miffy says she takes inspiration from everywhere, which has resulted in each room of her home having its own distinctive look.

If you're now looking at these photos and wanting to completely revamp your house, then Miffy thinks it's a good idea to start slow and then add more.

She added: "It's a growing process I don't do it all in one go, I start collecting things.

"So I suggest people begin with a favourite picture, a lovely rug or a comfy sofa, use whatever you love to inspire you, and it all comes from that - pick out different colours and textures from your beloved item and build it from there.

"The key is to make it personal to you.

"My house doesn't usually look like this, it usually has an ironing board in it, washing hanging around; it's real life, but I fill it with the stuff that I love - surely that's what your home's all about?"
