Maison Bergdorf

Part cuckoo clock kitsch, part hipster cool all wrapped up in a historic Holzchalet in Interlaken Switzerland, Maison Bergdorf is the perfect guesthouse for our weekend virtual getaway. With 8 bedrooms, 3 parlours, fireplace and verandahs we can rent the entire house. Now whether to relax and do nothing, put on the hiking boots and head into the great outdoors or wind our way along Interlaken's Straßen. Time to brush up on my schoolgirl German.

A 16th century family manor in Cotswolds

Such a beautiful home and a beautiful story. Keeping things traditional today. Dating back to 1555 this beautiful Grade II listed property has both an impressive history and a fascinating human story. Having been owned by a particular family for some generations, it was sold by the current owner’s grandmother when he was just a boy. Although he was very young at the time, the sale greatly affected him. He vowed that as an adult he would buy back the house which had brought him so many happy childhood memories – a goal which he recently achieved much to the delight of his family. We were thrilled to be approached by the family to help restore the house to its natural grandeur. We began by stripping away to rediscover original features, such as beautiful wooden panelling and magnificent stone fireplaces, which had become lost under layers of incongruous decoration. Our clients wanted a graceful yet contemporary feel which we achieved by using a light colour scheme and natural materials. Designed by Sims Hilditch.

A modern lakeside cabin in Montana

Sitting lightly on its site this modern take on a log cabin just shows that "cabin" does not equate with roughing it. Simple, stylish and taking advantage of a stunning view. What more could you want? How about a boathouse studio as well? Northshore Cabin by Pearson Design Group.

A home in Portland by Bright Designlab

Loving this mid-century vibe Portland home designed by Bright Designlab. A newlywed couple, came to us having just purchased their home in NE Portland: a completely modernized, traditional Portland home. The scope of the project was to fully furnish the spaces and make their new nest livable, functional; reflecting the couple's undeniable charismatic personality... with room to grow. The shingled home is three stories tall (now with renovated attic floor), and very light, bright, and open, with traditional moldings and details. Bright Designlab pulled together a selection of classic pieces along with handcrafted, vintage and custom furniture to complement.
