With one eye firmly on the purse strings, House & Garden’s Gabby Deeming explains how she brought style to her rented flat in Bloomsbury. She is fortunate enough to be in a long-term relationship with her eighteenth-century flat. It is owned by a charity, The Rugby Estate, so she has the security of a long lease. After six years there – and with no intention of moving – Gabby decided to decorate. The original panelling and deep recessed windows compensate for many of its shortcomings, such as the thoughtless carving up of space, but Gabby discovered that there are plenty of decoration ideas to bring a stronger sense of identity and permanence to the space, as well as a growing number of companies offering products perfect for an interiors facelift with minimum cost and effort.
