Latest Homes & Makeovers From Maxine Brady

HELLO MAGAZINE EDITORS. Welcome to my houses & makeover portal.

Below is a selection of beautiful homes & makeovers for you to feature. If you are interested in any of the projects below, email me at and tell me the homeowner name as detailed below – and I will send you the pictures and homeowner info.

All the houses & makeovers you see below are active. I’ve clearly stated if these are the finished images or reccky shots.

When a house is sold, it will be removed from the portal. I’ll be updating it frequently, so if you have a space for a home that needs a quick turn around, come visit this page (or email me for the link!)

With rights it depends on the fee for the feature, I can be flexible.

When it says Photographer TBC – it is because I have not allocated a photographer as yet – so I’m open to suggestions on who to shoot it with.

Video content is available for some of the houses for you to use on-line as part of a house tour for a additional fee.

All shoots will comply with strict social distancing regulations and following health and safety guidelines.

HOUSE: Sofi & Ed, Hove. Photos David Woolley.

Family home in Hove. It’s a 1970s house that has been transformed inside and out from a grannie house into a modern family home. The young family run Soul & Surf retreats in India and Sri Lanka. They have cool vibes and have kept lots of the 1970s features – including the open staircase and some of the furniture was left by the previous owners.

Lots of amazing design ideas in the house – from terrazzo tiling in the bathroom, pocket doors, bold colours, modern art, window box windows, open-plan kitchen. The garden is currently being transformed.

RECCKY SHOTS: Please hold in mind this house will be styled on the day by me – so they rooms will be looking picture perfect – and have a warm and welcoming feel.
