    Default An inheritance in need of work

    Provender, a stately home in the English county of Kent, is being renovated by Princess Olga Romanoff. She inherited the 30,000-square-foot house, her childhood home, in 2000.

    Orange curtains in the third pic would have been on a bonfire in minutes if I was redoing that place.

    i don't know if it's the best idea but i'd throw out all the furniture and go for a more clean tight modern look.

    it looks far too stuffy, even in the after pictures.

    agree.
    i'd keep some of the really good antique pieces, and modernise the rest.
    the orange curtains, dining room chairs, crappy coffee tables and flowered bedspreads need to die.

    I don't like the wood panelling on the ceilings at all. Over all, I dislike it.

    That's a lot of rooms to renovate. Too many for me, I'd get bored after about 20.

    It's quite lovely but does need remodeling.

    I'd loves to inherit it and redecorate/remodel it. The only thing I would leave is the cute blue attic room <3

    You read my mind! That "Dining Room" (though how in god's name someone could eat with the noise of my vomitting) and Library are wretched BAAAAAD!
