One the posts you currently like the most is the one where I shared my total crush – and slight obsession – with the home of famous Youtuber Tanya Burr. Over the last year, the Chapmans have been doing some renovation work to their home and I thought I would recap the changes here. I am a bit nosey when it comes down to interiors, so here we go. Some photos are a bit blurry, it’s because there are screenshots.
As you remember from my post, I was pretty obsessed with their kitchen. I thought it looked very homey and it had some kind of cottage feel to it that I liked. Jim and Tanya obviously had another opinion on the matter as they had planned on redoing the whole room and actually extending it to the garden.
Tanya loves the walls to be white so that she can add colourful accents with accessories. The kitchen is therefore a nice contrast with the rest of the house. The units were painted F&B Railings and the countertop is a slab of white quartz that looks like Carrara marble – dreaaaaaaaamy. I love dark/coloured kitchens because white is boring, especially if there’s natural light in the kitchen. Also, white is so overdone, I’m a bit tired of the minimalist look.
The Chapmans love their tea/coffee – who doesn’t! I’m slightly jealous of their coffee set up….
Since the extension made the ground floor larger, the Chapmans moved their dining table next to the kitchen. The bright pieces of art on the wall are from Sofia Neptune, Sean Madden and Cheryl Ann Williams. Click on the links to see them in all their glory! The fabulous bar trolley is from Oliver Bonas and is sadly sold out.
I’m loving the bedroom so much. I’m jealous because mine is really bad and has no light whatsoever. I absolutely love the bedside tables. I’m not a fan of having drawers because I fill them with crap but I think the mirrored finish is so chic and stylish, it gives the room the high end look I love in luxury hotels.
The main thing I like about her bathroom is that it looks fresh and clean. The tiles seem beautiful. It reminds me I need a bath in my life, that is all.
Another one of those mirrored bedside tables! I don’t really like the shelves, it looks messy in my opinion but overall, pretty decent bathroom!
Also, totally need a basket like this next to my future bath.
In her office tour, Tanya revealed she had a white custom desk built specifically for the space. The chair is a West Elm saddle one that came from John Lewis. In a recent vlog, Jim shared that Tanya had ordered more chairs and had asked for a bigger table because she wanted to keep the work mess upstairs and out of sight.

Jim and Tan also mentioned in some of their videos that they will probably get a new piano that would stand in the middle of the room. They also bought a new chandelier but haven’t got around to fit it in yet, I’m curious of what it will look like!

And that’s a wrap. I mostly was really into her renovation because I was also doing some work on my house. Of course, we didn’t have the same budget but we lived the same things pretty much – no working kitchen for a while.
