I don’t think I’ve ever seen a house quite like this one. This London home is designed by Sue Miller of Mad Cow Interiors with the idea of creating a boutique-style holiday retreat. With lots of dark colours, wonderful textures and amazing wallpaper the home definitely has a boutique feel. I really like the look of this home, it’s so unique and cozy and it just puts a smile to my face.
Colour, plants and plenty of natural wooden elements. Sounds like a perfect combination right? Well, this London apartment has all of that. With a green living room, a pink study and a blue bedroom this apartment definitely doesn’t lack in colour. Only the kitchen and bathroom have stayed in white tones. I love how they stripped back the door and window frames to their natural wood tones, together with the plants this gives a nice natural element to the home. I could move into this apartment easily, and you can too because it’s for sale!
In North London lies this lovely historic family home by JJ Locations. The open plan living space is very bright thanks to the large windows, white walls and light wooden floor. Luckily you can still see the original features of this property in the stained glass windows and lovely fireplaces. I really like the feel of this home, it’s very relaxed, spacious and fresh.
I’m a strong advocate of keeping original details in tact. But I love it when a historic home gets a modern extension (when it’s done right obviously). This Victorian home in London might look like a normal Victorian from the outside but there’s a hidden eye catcher. Inside you see a beautiful combination of old & new, light & dark. The original living space are painted a lovely dark blue and still has original features. The kitchen however is something completely different. The modern kitchen has a gorgeous glass extension that bring in tons of light! The home is designed by Gary Tynan of Studio 304 Architects and I think he did a stunning job! Oh.. did I mention it’s for sale?
This loft apartment in Clerkenwell, London used to be a factory where barrels were made. Now it has been turned into a stunning apartment that we can not only look at but you can stay in it as well! The (triple height!) living space has a beautiful exposed brick wall, a marble kitchen and a real eye catching dining space. Look at those indoor plants, isn’t it amazing? The apartment has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, all beautifully designed. On top of that there is – of course – also a roof terrace, what more can you possibly want?
Combine a spectacular London penthouse with Cereal Magazine and interior designer Tina Norden and you’ll get an amazing home. The penthouse (that’s for sale!) is one of 4 new apartment designed by Pilbrow and Partners. The huge windows give you amazing views over the Thames. To do the industrial history of the place justice, interior designer Tina Norden used polished concrete, brass, marble and black in this penthouse. The home is decorated with carefully chosen design pieces. I love the contrast of light and dark in the bedroom. The large windows flood the room with light but the dark wall colours give the space a darker atmosphere and truly that bed is amazing!
That you should only use light colours in small homes is definitely a myth and Duncan Campbell & Luke Edward Hall prove exactly that in their small London flat. The apartment in situated in a Victorian building and only has a small living/kitchen space, a bedroom and a bathroom. The living space is painted in a stunning emeral green and it’s packed with books, art and mementos. The bedroom is painted in a soft blue colour, but they’re thinking of painting it dark sea green which I think will look amazing. The bathroom rocks a Art & Crafts Voysey floral and fauna print and also here they put in some green by using green subway tiles. I absolutely love this home. The combination of colour, classic furniture and a touch of fun is absolutely spot on!
Airbnb is a great source to find interesting and original places to stay for your next travel destination. I have posted quite a few cool places and this London pub is definitely one of them. This former Victorian pub from the 1850s is carefully restored to a comfortable and cozy home. The owners restored the apartment with a careful eye to the history of the building. The shutters are original and the kitchen resembles a bar that you can find in an old pub. The apartment is decorated with antique items and furniture from the owner’s own brand Loaf. The historic feeling is enhanced with the charcoal, blue-greys and soft white paint choices which also gives the place a calming atmosphere. This is such a beautiful apartment and you can feel the love towards to old Victorian building, don’t you agree?
I don’t think there’s anything in this London home that I don’t like. Beautiful use of color, a walk in closet ánd the home even has it’s own bar. It’s lovely how they worked with various shades of grey in this home. The dark living room creates a cozy atmosphere and it’s a wonderful contrast with the bright kitchen where the skylight and large glass sliding doors flood the space with light. Upstairs they kept the private spaces very calming in soft pink and grey. It gives the bedroom a bit of a Scandinavian vibe don’t you think? And honestly that bedroom with en-suite bathroom and on top of that a walk in closet? This London home is a dream come true for everyone!
