A Victorian London Home with a Glass Extension

Gravity Home: A London Victorian With Glass Extension

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?

Stay In A Former Victorian Pub In London

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?

A Vintage Victorian Apartment In Pink And Grey

This vintage Victorian home in London belongs to food blogger Skye McAlpine and her family. The Victorian is designed by no other than Percy and Tara from Jersey Ice Cream Co. In only 3 weeks Tara and Percy created a wonderful vintage inspired family home. The home has good bones but Percy and Tara worked hard to make this Victorian into a serene and welcoming place for Skye’s family and friends. They plastered the walls in beautiful light pink and grey to give this soft vintage look and Percy built the kitchen and some furniture. The home is filled with vintage items that Tara found in England on their short stay here. The vintage items and the old bones of the building complement each other perfectly. I’m always so amazed by the work of Jersey Ice Cream Co, they constantly manage to create these beautiful serene, vintage looking homes. See the pictures of this Victorian London apartment for yourself and fall in love!

A Green and Art-Filled Victorian Home in London

I think we can safely say that the person who decorated this Victorian home in the London district Camberwell loves green. I think you can easily overdo a certain colour accent but in this light filled Victorian home they did just the right amount without you getting sick of it. The colour pops up in furniture and accessories in every room but also in the many plants that fill this large London home which gives it a nice spring vibe. Next to all the green accents in this lovely home it also has tons of beautiful artwork to decorate the large white walls. I absolutely love this green and artful Victorian London home and it gives me lots of inspiration to make my home a bit greener.
