Beautifully finished interiors of newly renovated home

The thing that struck me about the interior of this particular home was the materials used and the craftsmanship with which everything had been installed. This high standard of finish turns the ordinary into a thing of beauty - for example, the plumbers fittings used as taps or the repurposed cabinet housing a wash basin and stripped pine floors complementing the wood cladding on the walls. None of the examples mentioned would have cost the earth but with a little thought, creativity and boldness the owners here have acheived something rather lovely.
