The Don’t Move, Improve movement has seen planning applications soar by 25 per cent in the past five years. And for good reason, says Nicole Bremner, who tackled her own highly personal 10-month renovation project to beautiful and rewarding effect.

In 2010, I had one of the biggest, most uprooting jobs of my life. No, it wasn’t the online fashion business (flawed in the end, as it transpired). It wasn’t the food photography (not enough income). And it wasn’t the baking (too many cakes, not enough online traffic). Needless to say, it definitely wasn’t the knitting either.

No it was something else altogether. A special non-stop, rollercoaster 10-month project I had self-elected to lead. It was a project so deeply personal and one I will remember forever: the renovation of my own home.
