Come On In THE AUTUMN LOOKBOOK


Your wardrobe isn’t the only thing that screams for some attention as the days get cooler and shorter. Autumn is also the perfect time to update your home and reassess the need for the addition of all things cosy. So, embrace the outdoors, think about the parts of autumn that make you feel great – oh hey there autumn tones and crisp air – and channel these good things and more into your home to be ready for what the new season will bring.


The Daydream Spot


STYLE TIP Our time inside is treasured right now so make it a space that gives you good feels too. Embracing chunkier fabrics and patterns will be perfect in fulfilling the warmth needed as we head into wintery days. Chairs to snuggle in, like our Betsy will be the one everyone fights to sit in.

Let’s Sit A Little


STYLE TIP If there was ever a spot that makes us feel toasty it’s the kitchen. Bright light is left behind for summer as we enjoy the softer tones and deeper shadow play of Autumn. Layers aren’t forgotten in here so consider small pieces of art, textured greenery and natural finishes like leather and timber.

Warm Tones Are Always Good


STYLE TIP Never be afraid to find your bold. Deeper tones will make you feel cocooned in its richness. Stronger colour is not for the faint hearted but the impact will be mighty. Make it your zone and enjoy the hotel feel.

Laying Ever So Low


STYLE TIP The benefits of a bedroom restyle will not only help to make your sleep so much better, but it will also entice you to spend more time in here relaxing, and that is something we all need more of. Adding layers like throws and blankets are super handy to keep the chills at bay plus look super chic too!

Catching That Light


STYLE TIP Your outdoor entertaining soirees are still so important, even when the days are shorter and cooler. Sunny spots will be perfect for your table and chairs. A chance to hang with your favourite people and make the most of a beautiful day.


Moments will be smaller but filled with goodness when you have glassware on your table. Coloured glass sparkling in the sunshine creates the charm that we need on a daily basis. Green inclusions on your tabletop take the scene to the next fabulous level. SHOP THE OUTDOOR EDIT >

An Inspired Makeover in the Heart of Windsor

This charming Victorian terrace was reimagined and transformed by the property owner and co-founder of Resident House, Sarah Harris. Sarah’s background in graphic and interior design brings knowledge of colour, form, and texture to Resident House, who have a passion for restoring heritage homes. She considers every detail to ensure a space where function is paramount, and finishes enhance everyday living. We chatted with Sarah to learn more about this beautiful renovation and her career journey.


What original features did you retain with the renovation? We fully renovated the original house and extended to the rear with courtyards/light wells separating the old and the new. In terms of the period features, we either restored or replaced them like-for-like. Some of the details included the facade with unique Victorian mouldings and detailing, cast iron front fence, original fireplaces and marble mantles, hallway arch, ceiling roses, cornice and architraves. Our renderer who specialises in heritage restoration spent months repairing the damaged facade, painstakingly repairing every individual piece and creating moulds on site for anything that was beyond repair or missing. We thought the original marble mantles were possibly beyond repair but again, after finding a speciality stonemason, we were able to have them fully restored and reinstalled. They are one of our favourite features of the home and particularly the black St Anne’s mantle is quite rare as we’ve been told the marble hasn’t been quarried for 80 years. What were the biggest challenges in this project? In terms of design, planning and the build it was a fairly straight forward project for us, but no project is ever short of stress and challenges. Restoring period homes is so much more work than a new build. You are constantly problem solving and facing different challenges on-site day in, day out. From a design perspective you have to be flexible and think on your feet as things arise. We had our son mid 2019 so that was a big stress to get the house finished before he arrived!


Can you share with us your top three tips for anyone embarking on a major renovation? 1.

Always factor in plenty of time for design and planning

2.

Have a contingency in your budget

3.

If you don’t have the skills yourself, make sure you engage the right people from design through to trades. Engaging people, you trust and who share your vision is so important.

Can you tell us about your career journey? What pushed you to open Resident House? I started Resident House about 4 years ago, purely as a blog and Instagram page to share the process of our renovations. My husband Ben is a carpenter by trade and has been a helicopter pilot for the last 18 years and I was a graphic designer for 12 years, so our renovation projects were something we did in addition to our full-time jobs! I always knew I would pursue interior design in more of a full-time capacity, but it was all about timing and especially after becoming a Mum, your time is so precious, so it just made sense to focus on something that I’m 100% passionate about. We’re not your usual interior design studio as our own projects are a big part of what we do and we’re very grounded in property development and the construction side of things too. We’ve just sold our latest project #houseonupton so are excited to get started on the next one!
