Synopsis
When Barbara Jones stepped into her three-storey Brighton townhouse for the first time, she instantly sensed its potential. “The house is a few steps up from the road and south-facing, so we get amazing, strong natural light all day, especially in the lounge,” says Barbara, who was also attracted to the unusually private garden. “In Brighton, most back yards are overlooked – buts ours stretches all the way back to the railway line.”

With its simple interiors and well-proportioned rooms, the house offered a blank canvas for Barbara, who works as a textile designer, specialising in homewares and dressmaking. “All the Victoriana, such as the cornicing and architrave, was taken out by a builder in the 1960s,” she says. “We did think about reinstating the fireplaces, but we love the house how it is. It’s full of clean lines, which is very nice to live in. We just needed to put our own stamp on it.”
