-Tonight, we see Dr Olwen Williams's

-Georgian house in St Asaph...

0:00:200:00:26

-..then we see an amazing

-home-cum-museum in Berriew...

0:00:270:00:32

-..and, finally, we'll visit

-Rena Clarke's home in the Marches.

0:00:330:00:38

-Welcome to 04Wal.

0:00:380:00:40

-This Georgian house...

0:00:540:00:56

-..belongs to Dr Olwen Williams

-and Paul Lloyd, her partner.

0:00:560:01:00

-Paul has a studio here

-and he renovated the house.

0:01:000:01:04

-They both influenced

-the interior design.

0:01:040:01:07

-The large rooms...

0:01:080:01:09

-..are full of interesting items,

-including Paul's work.

0:01:090:01:13

-What made you choose this house?

0:01:150:01:18

-It met many of my requirements.

0:01:180:01:20

-I wanted a garden

-and a house which had many rooms.

0:01:210:01:25

-We didn't have children then

-and we still don't have children...

0:01:250:01:30

-..but we thought we'd have lots of

-guests, if we moved to north Wales.

0:01:300:01:35

-We were right -

-the house is full every weekend.

0:01:350:01:38

-Paul was teaching art in Liverpool,

-at the time...

0:01:380:01:42

-..and he wanted to leave

-the teaching profession.

0:01:420:01:46

-He wanted to branch out on his own,

-as a ceramicist and an artist.

0:01:460:01:52

-We needed a property

-that was large enough...

0:01:520:01:55

-..to house a workshop for him.

0:01:560:01:58

-What, apart from the size,

-drew you to the house?

0:01:580:02:02

-It's a Georgian house and I've

-always loved Georgian design.

0:02:020:02:06

-The proportions are fantastic.

0:02:070:02:09

-The location is perfect.

0:02:090:02:11

-Though it's in the countryside

-it also meets our final criterion.

0:02:110:02:16

-That criterion was to have a house

-within walking distance of a pub.

0:02:160:02:22

-That's the honest truth.

0:02:220:02:24

-We looked for that

-in every single house.

0:02:240:02:27

-Who cares where it is - it must be

-within walking distance of a pub!

0:02:270:02:31

-We love to go for a pint,

-in the evening.

0:02:320:02:34

-This house happened

-to fit all our criteria.

0:02:350:02:38

-Is it easy to adapt a Georgian house

-to modern living?

0:02:390:02:43

-Yes, I think so.

0:02:430:02:44

-Our taste differs from that of most

-people who buy Georgian houses.

0:02:450:02:50

-As you can see,

-some of the rooms are very modern.

0:02:510:02:55

-Some have an art deco flavour.

0:02:550:02:57

-Other rooms include touches

-of art nouveau and arts and crafts.

0:02:570:03:02

-We've tried to preserve

-the Georgian features.

0:03:020:03:06

-We haven't added

-any brand new features.

0:03:060:03:10

-What about your colour scheme?

0:03:110:03:14

-This red is very bright.

0:03:140:03:15

-It's bright but also warm.

0:03:160:03:18

-Yes. I'm very fond of white,

-as a canvas for Paul's work.

0:03:180:03:22

-We have what is, more or less,

-a black and white room.

0:03:230:03:27

-Bright colours

-reflect our personalities.

0:03:280:03:31

-We're both extroverts

-and we're quite bubbly.

0:03:310:03:35

-We want to live in an environment

-which complements that.

0:03:350:03:39

-Did you knock

-these two rooms into one?

0:03:550:03:57

-No, I think this was done

-in the 1970s.

0:03:580:04:00

-There was a pantry over here.

0:04:010:04:03

-There was a corridor here

-and a door there.

0:04:050:04:07

-This is the heart of our home.

0:04:080:04:10

-We live here. Our cat and dog

-are with us, all the time.

0:04:110:04:15

-I enjoy spending time here

-more than any of the other rooms.

0:04:150:04:19

-There's an assortment of materials

-in here.

0:04:190:04:23

-A lovely slate floor,

-this modern, 1970s table...

0:04:240:04:28

-..and all the wonderful,

-custom-made cabinets.

0:04:290:04:33

-Yes. Paul's brother

-made this sycamore kitchen.

0:04:340:04:37

-There are touches of art deco

-arts and crafts in here.

0:04:380:04:43

-We have a traditional,

-Belfast sink...

0:04:430:04:46

-..paired with an ultramodern tap.

0:04:460:04:49

-Light comes in here

-from the back of the house...

0:04:500:04:54

-..and from the front, too.

0:04:540:04:56

-Yes. These windows are great.

0:04:570:04:59

-They let in lots of light...

0:04:590:05:01

-..and they give us

-a great view of grass and sheep.

0:05:020:05:05

-We live in the centre of St Asaph

-but we're surrounded by nature.

0:05:060:05:10

-It's a real pleasure

-to live in a house like this.

0:05:110:05:14

-This wide hallway suggests to me

-the original owners were wealthy.

0:05:300:05:34

-Only the rich could afford to

-dedicate so much space to a hallway.

0:05:350:05:40

-Look at this fantastic floor

-and these wide stone slabs.

0:05:400:05:44

-Everything here echoes

-the original, Georgian design.

0:05:450:05:49

-The kitchen and the lounge

-we saw earlier are through there.

0:05:490:05:54

-This is the main lounge.

0:05:540:05:55

-Beyond it is the dining room.

0:05:560:05:58

-It's like entering a cave.

0:05:580:06:01

-It could certainly be described

-as whiter than white.

0:06:010:06:05

-Everything looks better

-against a white background.

0:06:080:06:12

-This is a fusion

-of several design periods.

0:06:130:06:16

-The sofa and two chairs are modern.

0:06:160:06:18

-It's a fascinating collection

-of individual pieces.

0:06:180:06:23

-No two pieces of glasswork

-are the same style.

0:06:240:06:27

-It's an interesting collection.

0:06:280:06:30

-There's a boat in the fireplace.

0:06:310:06:33

-It's a two-bar electric fire,

-in essence...

0:06:350:06:38

-..but it becomes a work of art

-when you encase the fire in a boat.

0:06:380:06:43

-You can admire it,

-with a smile on your face.

0:06:440:06:47

-It's very camp.

0:06:470:06:48

-The dining area is over here.

0:06:490:06:51

-This is my favourite

-piece of furniture in the house.

0:06:510:06:55

-What a magnificent table.

0:06:550:06:57

-Look at the legs!

0:06:580:06:59

-There's a variety of chairs here.

-Each one is a design classic.

0:06:590:07:04

-They would take their place

-in any room and in any period.

0:07:050:07:09

-This is my office.

0:07:320:07:34

-I come here, when I want to work.

0:07:340:07:36

-I also listen to music

-and read here.

0:07:370:07:40

-It's always very tidy...

0:07:400:07:42

-..because I need a clear table

-on which to work.

0:07:420:07:46

-I never leave books out.

0:07:460:07:48

-I start from scratch every time.

0:07:480:07:50

-I also tidy up in here,

-in the evenings.

0:07:510:07:54

-This is all arts and crafts.

0:07:560:07:58

-I'm very fond

-of the work of William Morris.

0:07:580:08:02

-Over the years, I've amassed

-a collection of small pieces...

0:08:020:08:06

-..of a Morris-style design.

0:08:060:08:09

-I've stuck to a dark palette

-in here.

0:08:100:08:13

-Green is the classic colour

-for a study.

0:08:130:08:16

-This is the old part of the house,

-isn't it?

0:08:180:08:21

-Yes. We think

-this was the servants' quarters.

0:08:220:08:25

-We also think

-the cooking was all done in here.

0:08:260:08:29

-There was a fireplace here,

-when we bought the house...

0:08:290:08:33

-..but the chimney was unsupported!

0:08:330:08:36

-We rebuilt the chimney

-and refitted the fireplace.

0:08:360:08:40

-It's cosy.

0:08:400:08:41

-Above the office,

-leading off the spare bedroom...

0:08:480:08:52

-..there is a reflection room.

0:08:520:08:54

-It is also used as a gallery for

-the work of Paul and other artists.

0:08:540:08:59

-It's clear

-you've worked really hard.

0:09:190:09:22

-I enjoy gardening.

-I come home to relax.

0:09:230:09:26

-It's physical work...

0:09:270:09:28

-..but it gives the brain

-a chance to relax and wander off.

0:09:290:09:33

-It's a kind of blue air thinking.

0:09:330:09:36

-There's a touch of 'The Good Life'

-about this garden!

0:09:370:09:41

-I had a crop of 24 white cabbages

-one August.

0:09:410:09:44

-Two of us couldn't possibly

-eat 24 white cabbages.

0:09:450:09:49

-Our friends and family enjoy the

-fruits of my labour in the garden.

0:09:490:09:55

-We give away the produce.

0:09:560:09:58

-I live the good life here,

-but it isn't like 'The Good Life'!

0:09:580:10:03

-Can you foresee a time

-when you won't live here?

0:10:130:10:16

-Yes. The time will come.

0:10:170:10:18

-This is a big house, for two people.

0:10:190:10:21

-When we move,

-I love the idea of a self-build.

0:10:210:10:24

-Something like the German Huf Haus.

0:10:250:10:28

-This house

-was built as a family home...

0:10:280:10:31

-..and that's what it should be.

0:10:310:10:33

-That's why we must move from here.

0:10:330:10:36

-I want someone else

-to have fun here...

0:10:360:10:38

-..just like we've had fun here.

0:10:390:10:41

0:10:570:10:59

-Deep in rural Wales, in a building

-which was once two squash courts...

0:11:010:11:06

-..there is an alternative museum

-and an unusual flat.

0:11:060:11:10

-This unique museum

-belongs to the artist, Andrew Logan.

0:11:290:11:33

-This is the only museum in Europe...

0:11:330:11:36

-..dedicated to the work

-of a living artist.

0:11:360:11:39

-Andrew established the Alternative

-Miss World Competition in the 1970s.

0:11:390:11:45

-His work is collected by stars like

-Zandra Rhodes, Elton John and Bono.

0:11:450:11:51

-His jewellery was recently featured

-on 'Sex and the City'.

0:11:510:11:55

-In a multifunctional building,

-space sharing is unavoidable.

0:11:570:12:02

-This is the museum office...

0:12:020:12:04

-..and it's also the lounge

-for Andrew and Michael, his partner.

0:12:040:12:09

-It's an interesting room.

0:12:090:12:11

-The ceiling rises to a peak

-and the window echoes that shape.

0:12:120:12:16

-There's glass from floor to ceiling,

-which makes it a light room.

0:12:160:12:21

-There's a cosy fireplace,

-a television and a music system.

0:12:210:12:25

-Everything you'd need in a lounge,

-including personal objects.

0:12:260:12:30

-I think they've made very clever use

-of the space in the gallery.

0:12:310:12:36

-This was a viewing gallery for those

-who wanted to watch squash games.

0:12:360:12:41

-They left it open and you can see

-pieces of Andrew's work, over there.

0:12:410:12:47

-It's like looking out, through

-a window, but it's more interesting.

0:12:500:12:55

-The rest of the house is behind me.

0:12:550:12:58

-Here it is.

0:13:000:13:01

-There's a shower room and toilet.

0:13:020:13:05

-The staircase

-leads to the only bedroom.

0:13:050:13:08

-I know what you're thinking -

-pink and red clash.

0:13:080:13:11

-They're meant to clash.

-It's that type of place.

0:13:120:13:15

-Here it is.

0:13:190:13:20

-A cross between a Turkish boudoir

-and a Bedouin's tent.

0:13:200:13:25

-You could live here.

0:13:260:13:28

-There's a television,

-books and clothes in here.

0:13:280:13:32

-It's practical

-but it has a unique style.

0:13:330:13:36

-It isn't subtle but it isn't meant

-to be subtle - that's half the fun.

0:13:360:13:41

-I think this really adds something

-to this room.

0:13:410:13:46

-It came from India

-and it looks very primitive.

0:13:460:13:49

-It's very playful, isn't it?

-It's full of fun.

0:13:500:13:53

-I think that's part

-of the very essence of this style.

0:13:530:13:58

-Leading from this flat

-is a simple terrace.

0:14:270:14:30

-It's a great place to have parties.

0:14:310:14:33

-As you've seen, the flat takes up

-very little of this building.

0:14:390:14:44

-The rest is a museum.

-But wow, what a museum!

0:14:440:14:47

-I've certainly never seen

-anything like it.

0:14:470:14:50

-This may not be

-to everyone's taste...

0:14:500:14:53

-..but this is the perfect place

-to display Andrew Logan's work.

0:14:530:14:57

-In a nutshell, it's very camp.

0:14:580:15:00

-What he's done is transform tat

-into art...

0:15:000:15:03

-..spiced up

-with a good chunk of humour.

0:15:030:15:06

-Anything which can raise a smile,

-in this day and age, is valuable.

0:15:060:15:11

-I was staying with my mother

-and Tim saw this place.

0:15:470:15:51

-You wouldn't have seen its potential

-from the estate agent's photograph.

0:15:510:15:56

-It didn't look nice in the details.

0:15:560:15:59

-Tim came up here and he phoned me

-to say he'd bought it!

0:15:590:16:02

-It's magical up here.

0:16:030:16:04

-You can see Snowdonia

-and Cader Idris.

0:16:040:16:07

-It's fantastic.

0:16:070:16:09

-This breathtaking view

-can be seen from a home...

0:16:140:16:20

-..near the border

-between England and Wales.

0:16:200:16:23

-Facing west towards Wales,

-it's home to Rena and Tim Clarke.

0:16:230:16:26

-Thanks to their efforts, the house

-has been renovated and extended...

0:16:270:16:32

-..without losing

-its original character.

0:16:320:16:35

-It's a traditional, Welsh longhouse.

0:16:390:16:42

-The farmer lived in one room and

-the animals lived in the other room.

0:16:420:16:47

-The animals went into the warm room,

-where the fireplace stood.

0:16:470:16:51

-We wanted a bigger house,

-to capitalise on the view.

0:16:550:16:58

-That's why we tried to be

-sympathetic with the tradition...

0:17:000:17:04

-..in keeping

-with the original building.

0:17:050:17:09

-We built an oak-framed extension.

0:17:100:17:13

-What did you have to do,

-in order to make it habitable?

0:17:150:17:19

-We could just about squeeze in.

0:17:210:17:23

-Five of us lived here

-for a couple of years.

0:17:230:17:26

-It took time to get planning

-permission and to build the house.

0:17:270:17:31

-I like unusual things.

0:17:330:17:35

-I am not a minimalist,

-when it comes to interior design!

0:17:350:17:39

-I surround myself with things which

-say something about my family...

0:17:390:17:44

-..and my family's interests.

0:17:440:17:46

-I wanted the kitchen

-to be the heart of the home.

0:17:590:18:02

-We spend lots of time in here.

0:18:030:18:05

-We have four children...

0:18:050:18:07

-..and they come and go,

-as children do these days.

0:18:070:18:11

-We all congregate in here so the

-kitchen is the heart of our home.

0:18:110:18:16

-Do you enjoy cooking?

0:18:160:18:18

-Yes, I love to cook.

0:18:190:18:20

-I find it very relaxing.

0:18:200:18:22

-There's nothing better

-than to cook for a full table.

0:18:220:18:26

-I enjoy eating and drinking

-with a group of people.

0:18:260:18:30

-Did you choose the colours?

0:18:310:18:32

-Yes. There was once

-20 shades of pink in this kitchen.

0:18:320:18:36

-I wanted something warm.

0:18:370:18:38

-I get fed up with white!

0:18:410:18:43

-We've used a bit of white but I

-wanted something warm, in here.

0:18:430:18:48

-You have an eclectic taste.

0:18:480:18:50

-Yes, I suppose.

0:18:510:18:53

-You collect items

-from lots of different places.

0:18:530:18:56

-Yes and it's time to stop now

-because we have more than enough!

0:18:570:19:01

-It would take another lifetime

-to use them all!

0:19:010:19:04

-I use these plates.

0:19:050:19:06

-I take a plate off the wall

-when I cook a special meal.

0:19:060:19:10

-I don't keep things,

-just as ornaments.

0:19:100:19:13

-I like the fact everything is used,

-even our old glasses.

0:19:140:19:18

-Walk through the kitchen

-and you walk through a wall!

0:19:180:19:22

-This was once an external wall.

0:19:220:19:25

-This was the size of the house,

-at one time.

0:19:250:19:28

-The animals slept in the barn,

-which stood there.

0:19:280:19:32

-They managed to keep the old frame,

-where the palisade once stood.

0:19:320:19:37

-This was the dividing wall

-between two rooms.

0:19:370:19:40

-The old frame stands

-as a reminder of the original house.

0:19:410:19:44

-They've raised the ceiling height.

-You can see struts upstairs, too.

0:19:440:19:49

-It's almost a work of art.

0:19:500:19:51

-This is a family lounge,

-where people come to relax.

0:19:520:19:56

-It's cosy, unlike the room

-at the other end of the house.

0:19:560:20:01

-This is the modern part

-of the house.

0:20:190:20:21

-This is completely new, isn't it?

0:20:220:20:24

-Yes, that's right.

0:20:240:20:26

-Wow!

0:20:260:20:28

-Why did you want such a large room?

0:20:280:20:30

-We wanted a big room because

-the other rooms are so small.

0:20:330:20:37

-We wanted a contrast.

0:20:370:20:38

-We also wanted somewhere

-where we could eat and relax...

0:20:390:20:43

-..which was also ideal for parties.

0:20:430:20:45

-This is a triumph.

0:20:460:20:47

-The wall of glass

-capitalises on the fantastic view.

0:20:510:20:55

-Yes, it brings the outdoors

-into the room.

0:20:560:20:59

-Did you design it?

0:21:000:21:01

-Yes, with a friend of ours,

-who's an architect.

0:21:010:21:04

-We sat down together

-and created this.

0:21:060:21:09

-It's simple, really.

0:21:090:21:10

-We wanted to create

-a baronial style hall.

0:21:120:21:15

-We were keen

-to keep it simple and natural.

0:21:170:21:20

-There's something baronial

-about this table.

0:21:210:21:25

-Yes, it's enormous.

0:21:250:21:26

-You rarely see pieces of furniture

-like this any more.

0:21:270:21:31

-The person who made it

-has become a family friend.

0:21:340:21:37

-The wood is yew.

0:21:380:21:40

-He'd made it but he couldn't find

-a buyer because no-one had any room.

0:21:400:21:45

-It took six men

-to pick it up and carry it in.

0:21:490:21:52

-And that was just the tabletop!

0:21:520:21:55

-Tell me about the little statue

-on the table.

0:21:560:21:59

-It's made of the same wood

-as the table.

0:21:590:22:02

-It's a wizard.

0:22:020:22:03

-Kevin, the man who made the table...

0:22:030:22:06

-..always makes a statue

-to guard his creations.

0:22:060:22:11

-Walk upstairs,

-above the magnificent lounge...

0:22:220:22:25

-..and you'll find

-the master bedroom.

0:22:260:22:28

-The wood is amazing.

0:22:290:22:30

-These enormous purlins

-stretch the length of the house.

0:22:310:22:35

-There's a lovely brass bed

-in the sleeping area.

0:22:350:22:39

-There's a chaise longue here.

0:22:390:22:41

-If you want some privacy,

-you can draw these thick curtains.

0:22:410:22:45

-Nothing in this room

-compares to this breathtaking view.

0:22:460:22:50

-You can lie in your bed,

-on the border with England...

0:22:500:22:54

-..and gaze at Snowdon!

0:22:540:22:55

-Would anything persuade you

-to move away from here?

0:23:080:23:12

-I'm not sure.

0:23:120:23:14

-I'm really fond of this area.

0:23:140:23:16

-Perhaps I'd move closer to the sea.

0:23:160:23:19

-I love the sea too, and I have

-relatives in Pembrokeshire.

0:23:190:23:23

-I can't even imagine

-living anywhere but here.

0:23:230:23:27

-I can see why.
