Meta Makeover is filming today – Wednesday 30th July at 2pm at the SLCN studios in Northpoint – and everyone is welcome.
However, don’t look for the show on your SLCN TV tonight – this show will be broadcast later in the week (and we’ll be giving you the times later.
This week we’re visiting a really interesting Victorian house in Cheswick Village.
Bracken Back and Samaria Arai have run Cheswick Village for some time, offering spacious and elegant Tudor rentals located in a lush country setting.
Their houses have frequently been custom made, but now they are looking to create a new area – with Victorian custom-made homes. These are unusual because, while many builders choose to build on level sky platforms, and then lower the homes onto flat land, Bracken has built in situ, allowing the contours of the land to shape his houses, with interesting results.
We asked Soleil Snook of Snook’s Garden Centre to landscape the house, and Jeannie Moonflower of Bygone Days to furnish the inside. Join us to see how they worked with this lovely and unusual house – and how Jeannie created wonderful stories around the house, and a thriving business to be located in the basement!
The show starts at 2pm SLT, but you should be there by 1.45pm to make sure of getting a seat.
We’ll see you there!
Would you like your home to feature on Meta Makeover? Send an email to us at email@example.com with three or four pictures of your home attached, and stating your reasons why you would like a makeover. Every two weeks, we shall select one lucky owner from our postbag and invite them to be our next Meta Makeover!
“For this show, with a beautiful Victorian house and garden to explore, I wanted something that would suit the style and mood,” explains Saffia. “And I knew that bothe Jeannie and Soleil would be beautifully turned out in Voctorian style – although Soleil did threaten to wear overalls and Wellington boots!
“Dorothea, though, is a lovely and stylish Victorian gown. It’s actually been in my wardrobe for a while; I love the formality of it, and the way the coat sweeps back to reveal the skirt beneath.
“As for the studio outfit, once I saw the new Lill dress, I thought it would be perfect. Crisp and smart, with a stylish top (I love the prim flare at the waist) and a crisp white skirt, perfect for being business-like in the studio and cool at the same time!”
