Recent years have seen a drastic rise in interior design. This is especially true for upper-class families who want things to look perfect.

Fixing her own home:
Sarah’s passion for upcycling extends beyond her TV show. She also applied her creative skills and vision to renovate her own home, a 17th-century farmhouse in West Sussex that was in a near-derelict state when she bought it with her husband Pete.
The farmhouse, which was originally three cottages, is located in a peaceful hamlet in the South Downs, surrounded by 30 acres of land. It was a far cry from the busy road where Sarah and Pete lived before with their three teenage children.
Sarah admits that the house was a huge challenge, as it had a hole in the roof, a damaged bathroom ceiling, moths and maggots everywhere, and outdated fixtures and fittings. The family lived in it as it was for four years, then moved to a neighbouring farmhouse while the renovation work took place.
Sarah hired a specialist listed-building firm and an architect project manager to oversee the restoration, which involved replacing every roof, floor, window and wire in the farmhouse and the barn. They also enlarged the kitchen, added a fourth bedroom in the mezzanine level of the barn, and linked the two structures with a glass corridor.
When it came to decorating, Sarah was in her element. She used her collection of vintage fabrics and homewares to add colour, texture and character to every room. She also sourced reclaimed materials and furniture from salvage yards, auctions and online marketplaces, and gave them a makeover with paint, upholstery or carpentry.
