Before & After: A Converted Victorian Railway Car in Dungeness Kent

Design*Sponge

I cant remember the last time a before after grabbed me like this one did. I live for the day when we get to see incredible full-home makeovers that see- and bring to life- the potential in somewhat scary spaces. This has never been truer than in the case of Mark Keith of MiniModerns. They recently finished the complete makeover of a Victorian Railway Guards camper/car (with extension) in the seaside town of Dungeness, Kent. Not only was the project a major labor of love, but they were so inspired by the results they decided to create a new wallpaper (below) inspired by the project. The full details of this project are pretty incredible and the guys were so kind to send us so many pictures. Ive done my best to place them in an order that makes things as clear as possible, but not every angle has a matching before because so much major wall work was done. But for most spaces you can get a great idea of just how much work went into overhauling this space- like removing lead paint and bitumen coated floorboards (along with new hot water lines, an entire central heating system, a house-wise rewire, a new wood-burning stove, a new kitchen, bathroom and floors). Im SO impressed with the work Keith and Mark have done (along with the help of contractors) that Im beyond thrilled to share it here today. Thank you so much to the MiniModerns team for sharing this incredible space wish us. Their full project details and notes about this fascinating space continue below! xo, grace [All after photographs courtesy of Andrew Boyd] Images above: The entryway after its makeover; Keith and Mark enjoy the fruits of their labors; A new wallpaper pattern from Mini Moderns inspired by the Dungeness project.
