From the outside, it looks like a typical end-of-terrace house on any London Street.

The overall effect conjures images of Quality Street wrappers, particularly of the nation’s favourite chocolate hazelnut covered in purple wrapping.
Walk through the entrance and you’ll see a pink ceiling in the main living area and wooden floors that have a hint of gold.
The back of the front door and the radiator are painted purple, along with the architraves.
There are large printed fans on the walls, a gold-coloured room divider and a mirrored cupboard and dining table.
The bedspread contains a purple strip that matches the colour of the surrounding carpet and the purple one found in a box of Quality Street

A multi-coloured rug to one side of the room and dark curtains breaks up the purple theme.
The pink ceiling and mirrored cabinets continue in the shower room, where the accent of purple is picked up the towel and bath mat.
Even the back of the front door and the radiator have been painted purple
