Stalking my dream home?

A Gothic Revival facade that dates from 1873, a modern extension by Austin Maynard Architects and an amazing garden. I think I might just have found my dream home. A few tweaks to the furniture and artwork and I'd move in in a heartbeat. Shame I'll never be able to afford it. Ah well that's what stalking is for!

A charming bachelor apartment in Russia

I was poking around The Village the other day hoping to find a little gem of an apartment to share here and sure enough, look what I found! This bachelor apartment is 43.5 m2, is owned by a florist and and a photographer, and is really quite charming. I'm featuring it because I fell in love with the simple kitchen and dining area. A beautiful combination of pink, black, green, and white with a touch of crystal sparkle really has me falling in love with this place. I'd love to Airbnb this.
