New from Domus Nova (#1)

I got my hands on some new properties from the lovely folks over at West London estate agents Domus Nova. They always have really cool or really wacky homes on their roster. The 3 today would qualify as being somewhat wacky. Or at least out of the ordinary. Here is the first one, located in the heart of Notting Hill. It's 3 bedrooms, oddly shaped, 3-storey, 2040 sq ft and formerly the home of singer Robbie Williams. These owners sure have eclectic taste. I'm not sure how many people have the balls to buy a monstrous eggplant coloured sectional - and then outfit it with orange and yellow pillows.

Union Jacks

Too cool! Rule Britannia! Jamie Oliver's new restaurant Union Jacks designed by Blacksheep. It's quirky, it's fun. It's cheeky and clichéd Brit through and through. Nostalgia and post-war echoes, childhood memories and great food. Not just a concept eatery with theatrics and bells and whistles though, it is a fabulously well designed restaurant as you would expect for a top chef like Jamie.

Stalking a farmhouse in Texas

I'm real estate stalking a little further afield today. All the way to the Lone Star State. How about this cute as a button 100 year old farmhouse on 8 acres outside of Austin? AND it's in wine country. AND it has a chicken coop and veggie patch. I think you all know I have a thing for country cottages for weekend getaways or even a complete tree change. Big thanks to Nettie for the link. You'll find it for sale here.

Minimalist staircase

Apartment in Paris by École and photography by Xavier Lucas. Lean and mean. Are you keen?

5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... Let the outcry re safety, children, drunk in the middle of the night and building code begin ;)
