Welcome to the latest episode of House Tours Open Door. We've been busy filming gorgeous homes, filled with cool and clever ideas from their creative owners. 

We are beaming you into eight jaw-dropping homes, to hear from the owners and to get under the skin of exactly what makes a place special. Inspiration from the comfort of your living room? Sounds like a double win.

The clever use of a monochrome palette by Sarah-Louise Marks

Creative director Sarah-Louise Marks has chosen to stick to monochrome for her home, but that's not always the easy choice. Look closely, and there are many clever tricks to make this scheme stand out, from use of texture, subtle marble patterns and even in the occasional flash of bottle green. 

Sarah-Louise tackled the project in two phases - first to renovate the home nicely enough to live in, then to turn into their dream house.

She put the original panelling back on the walls, added cast iron radiators and painted the staircase black, all of which add instant drama, character and charm.

Sarah-Louise designed the marble coffee table herself, and says it has become a real talking point.

The bedroom was made extra plush and comfortable, designed to be a haven for Sarah-Louise to come back to as, in normal times, she travels a lot for work.
