Period charm meets Scandinavian simplicity in a beautiful Victorian terraced property in the midlands, home to Creative Director Donna Howell, otherwise known as dhowelldesigns, and her family. Here, we speak to Donna about her love of minimalism, calm interiors and how classic column radiators helped bring both form and function into their elegant home.
“I am Donna Howell a freelance Interior and lifestyle stylist. My background is in interior design but I moved away from that into the world of editorial styling 8 years ago.”
Out With The Old, In With The New
“Initially we replaced a lot of our radiators with original cast iron school radiators. Whilst this seemed like a great idea at the time and although they looked beautiful, we soon realised issues such as leaking and corroding. As a result we have gone on to replace them with reproduction column radiators and traditional valves from Best Heating.”
