Nothing beats a wonderfully executed conversion, like this barn located in Yorkshire, England. I absolutely love the vintage details with some modernism via some black and yellow. Exposed beams, stone walls and tongue and groove panelling make this extra special. Available as a location home via .
It’s almost the weekend baby and I couldn’t think of a more perfect chill out pad than this colourful bohemian getaway designed by Allison Bloom at . Fun, fab and family friendly with just enough retro rattan to make my head spin. It’s California coastal cool at its best.
Lisa featured this home quite some time ago but as it is one of the most magical homes I have ever seen I wanted to share it again, with more breathtaking photos. Welcome to .
Dennis Severs’ House at 18 Folgate Street, Spitalfields is more than just a time capsule. It is both a breathtaking and an intimate portrait of the lives of a family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the 20th Century. As you follow their fortunes through the generations, the sights, smells and sounds of the house take you into their lives. It was Dennis Severs’ intention that as you enter his house it is as if you have passed through the surface of a painting, exploring with your senses and imagination a meticulously crafted 18th Century world.

Her home is so fantastic I had to include a part 2 coming up later of the outdoor spaces.
“Designing a functional lifestyle goes well beyond beauty. It is an expression of where you are in your life. Your home should support you, showcase your interests and allow you to feel grounded.”
It’s about personal style and comfort, about surrounding yourself with what matters and what makes your heart sing. This West Village condo is the designer’s own home created from a once soulless warehouse conversion. Now? Well now it goes beyond trends and tells the story of a life well lived and loved. By
