Bedminster is known for its vibrant, trendy properties, and our latest instruction is no exception. We spoke with Emma Hibbs, owner of Basement Seven Hairdressing, who, along with her partner Adam, lovingly styled and remodelled this terraced house on Albert Place.
“I’ve collected the pieces within this property over the last 25 years. I’m a bit of a magpie in that sense, and there are some great vintage shops around the area!”
The couple’s passion for interior design is apparent as you move through the property. The 60’s and 70’s, retro décor is present throughout, and continues down into the basement, which has been converted into Emma’s salon, Basement Seven.
“Having worked in salons where you rent a chair before, it was really important to me to create a space that was family friendly, where people can come and feel relaxed, with a more personal experience.
My clients are able to treat the place as their own, so they can really relax, and even bring their children if they need.”
With a move away from Bedminster to Stroud on the horizon, Emma said the community feel that the local area has provided over the past nine years is something that they will all miss.
“We are looking to move out of Bristol, more towards Stroud to be closer to other family members, but we will certainly miss this vibrant, friendly place we have called home.
There are some amazing green spaces around the property, that have been perfect for our family as we’ve grown. There is the green just outside of the South Bristol Methodist Church across from us, and only a short walk away is South Street Park and Dame Kelly Park.
One of our favourite things about living around here has been that everything is within two a three minutes’ walk.
The area feels so vibrant and alive, and the neighbours around the area are so lovely, there’s a real community feel. And it feels like the community is one step ahead, certainly in terms of things like green awareness and managing plastic pollution."
