Real Housewives of Cheshire star Hanna Kinsella has given fans a glimpse inside her revamped home.
The reality TV star and Martin Kinsella showed fans the inside of their property.
Pictures from inside the plush home show with son Max in his new nursery, reports CheshireLive.
“All my interior design ideas come to me at night,” laughs Hanna, who works as a dentist as well as appearing on Real Housewives of Cheshire on ITVBe.
“The bedroom we moved into wasn’t quite to my taste. The way the ensuite blocked out the light wasn’t quite right, so one night I was lying there, and Martin was away with work, I suddenly had this idea – we had to knock the walls down and have the bathroom actually inside the bedroom.”
“A lot of the lovely hotels we’ve stayed in before we had Max made a real feature of the bath, and I love a bath, so I wanted somewhere I could settle down for a soak after a long day,” says Hanna.
“We wanted the shower to feel part of the room, too, so there’s a glass screen, which allows the light through.
“When my mum saw it she was a bit shocked and said ‘you don’t get much privacy!’, but it’s only me and Martin in there.”
“My clothes, shoes and bags take up a lot of room, and I like to be able to see everything, so adding the fitted wardrobes and back-lit display area behind the bed gave us that,” Hanna says.
“Then we put in a mini wall to put the bed against, so we still felt cosy while we slept, but the bed is actually in the middle of the room. It’s great, and it’s given us so much extra storage – which I’m quickly filling up.”
“When I was pregnant, a lot of the nursery furniture we saw was either white or pastel colours and we knew we wanted something a bit more natural,” says Hanna.
“I had this idea about the woods in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and I started thinking how we could get a tree in there for him to look at. I remembered there was one in Tattu in Manchester, and in Victor’s, and I started researching how we could get a tree in his room.
“When it was our room we’d had dark oak wardrobes made for the room, so we got a cot in the same colour wood, and made it a bit more dramatic than most nurseries, but we spend a lot of time in there, making it perfect for him, and we really do love it.”
“Now Martin keeps saying we need to buy somewhere new and I’m thinking maybe in a year or two, it would be good to have our forever family home,” says Hanna.
“Sometimes I think about moving to Majorca and living overlooking the sea, but I think we’ll always live in Cheshire. It’s home, and our family is here.
“I love the individuality of each town and village, the sense of community and all our little independent shops, restaurants and bars. So, I’d love to have a holiday somewhere sunny, but Cheshire will always be our home.”
