In 2009 I discovered the original wallpapers were still intact in several rooms in my house, so I set about uncovering them. The building dates from 1820 and it felt fulfilling to see these rooms in their original condition.

I kept the rooms sparse and slowly introduced elements into them. The tyres were there for practical reasons as I had just bought a new set for my car.
