A Dark and Moody Home in England

A Dark and Moody Home in England

With historic details as the backdrop of their art-filled home, Nadia and Mark Singleton live in a 1,500-square-foot dwelling in Leicestershire, England. Built in 1919, their space is full of charming fireplaces, unique details, and dark, moody walls.

Nadia runs a 3D printing business that produces prototypes for product designers, jewelry designers, artists, and sculptors. Before that, Nadia worked as a scenic artist and prop maker, painting backdrops for theaters around the country. Her husband is a financial adviser and encourages her passion for expressing herself in the home. Together they have two teenage sons. Their youngest son loves math and science, while their oldest son is artistic, creative, and is also autistic. He can be loud and excited at times, Nadia says, so they wanted to build a home that could function well for him. “We need to be able to have our own areas and he does too,” Nadia explains.

“Our house, like many, is an ongoing project,” Nadia shares. “It started life as a small, two-bed house and over the years has morphed into a four-bed house, with some additions and changes of our own.” From making the space work for her family, to literally using it as a canvas, Nadia’s creative touches make her home feel personal and completely unique. —Tawnee
