No so long ago, children left home to go to university and only returned for holidays and Sunday Lunches. Nowadays, just as parents have got used to being 'empty nesters' and settled into enjoying the extra space in the house, back home our children come, seeming much larger and needing more space. But what do you do when you don't wish to move? in Essex, Martyn Pattie Architects's team of talented interior designers, have helped many homeowners reorganise their existing living space to provide the extra rooms and storage required as well as give the whole area an update. The results are stunning. The only down side is, those children may never leave!
