A mansion in Surrey Hills

We are back in Surrey, U.K. but now featuring a 10,000 sq ft mansion restructured and redesigned by Maurizio Pellizzoni. Dating from 1901, this large Edwardian property is rooted in the Arts and Crafts movement. The client was keen to incorporate existing pieces of furniture from various family trips abroad into the new design. These pieces were distributed amongst the rooms in the house, and used as the inspiration behind each room's individual colour scheme and feel, creating an eclectic yet personal overall design aesthetic. Maurizio completely redesigned the kitchen alongside a local expert kitchen maker. Particular attention was paid to final details throughout the property in order to achieve a high-level of elegance and sophistication in the design, such as the beautifully crafted door handles by Charles Edwards. For the relaxed and informal living space, the client requested timeless nautical style that would also translate to a contemporary, English countryside setting. In order to achieve this, Maurizio designed a scheme inspired by the signature Hampton's style, an effortless mix of smart tailoring, cool blue and neutral tones and natural materials. Maurizio worked to develop bespoke furniture pieces, which use local craft, materials and resources to reinforce the connection between the property and its location in the English countryside.

Love Interiors

By now you will know how much I love an English kitchen so I thought I'd start this Surrey house tour in the kitchen and what a fabulous kitchen it is! It's not just this room that is great though. The rest of the house by Love Interiors (apt name don't you think?) is mighty fine as well.

Once a garage, now a studio

In my backyard is a detached garage. It is tilting to one side and is a dumping ground for all sorts of crap. And we can't even fit our car in it. I would give ANYTHING to turn it into something this incredible. This backyard writer's studio was created from the conversion of a 100 sq ft garage. WHOA.

Pretty in white and pastels

As much as I love dark colours, this home is really beautiful in white and pretty pastels. Without a doubt it is easy on the eye and must be so relaxing to come home to after a long day. ++Scandinavian cool++. Design: Laura Melling and Portico Design Group, photos: WTFU.

Sag Harbor

When your life is frantic, when the world is pawing at you over and over and over, when you want to stop the bus and just get off remember there are oases of calm out there. Little islands of simple beauty. This is one of them. Bookmark it and open it up when you need a visual pick-me-up. Sag Harbor by Steven Gambrel.
