Designer Kate Thornley-Hall takes on the "most fun" project of her life and turns a Victorian grist mill into a family vacation home, full of unexpected colour and life.

See how wrapping a bedroom in large-scale wallpaper and selecting oversized headboards are surprisingly effective tricks for making small spaces seem larger, and peek inside the property's rustic cabin.
