Vintage and modern by Black Parrots Studio

I am head over heels in love with this British family home in Barnes and its striking decor. Full of character and drama while a bit on the classic side and pared back. A gorgeous black library complete with black leather chesterfield (*GASP!!!*) and an eclectic mic of vintage and modern furnishings and lighting make this just all kinds of awesome.

Living well in minimal space

They're calling it a micro apartment but it's got more than enough room for me. What it lacks in size it definitely makes up for in style. Are you noticing more and more 80s influences appearing in rooms these days? Or is it just me because I lived (make that thrived) through the decade? The 30 sq m London apartment is by Play Associates.

Cider House

It's simple house in a coastal hinterland by Nexus Designs. Simply stunning that is. I could definitely imagine this as my weekend bolt hole. Stylish and relaxed.

Reader's home: Jen's cozy remodel in Vermont (for sale!)

I have dreams of one day living on lots of land and having lots of animals and enjoying lots of space and sounds of nature. Maybe I should buy reader Jen's home now for sale in Vermont! You might remember me from this post? Anyways…We sold that house the day the sign went up in the yard. We left Texas and have spent the last 5 years in Vermont, transforming a 1978 gambrel into something I think is pretty cool (think blue shag carpeting, blue trim, dark wood). Every surface has been touched and redone. We converted the attached garage to a funky apt with a sleeping loft with pods and have been renting it out on airbnb the last 2 years. We also added the garage/barn and I went bold and painted it black! This is such an amazing place to live but packing our bags for PA. Stalking an old stone house that needs a complete rehab :) Read more about Jen's fabulous home (on over 10 acres!) via the listing here

Minimalist extension 

The original house may be full of Victorian era charm but the new extension with its clean lines, neutral palette and natural materials is the perfect complement. Think minimalist with a mid century vibe. Seddon Residence by Melbourne-based architectural design firm Templeton.
