Clock House

A sad and sorry 1960s mid-terrace building in Finsbury Park, London has had new life breathed into it by architectural studio Archmongers. By knocking through the internal walls and creating a glass and timber extension the ground floor layout is more connected and so much brighter. I love the use of glass bricks, terrazzo, tiles, rubber and plywood, even the quirky "brain-coloured" tile and clock on the facade. Tired and dated is now energetic and creative.

More kitchen love

Love the cabinets and the pantry. Love the old fashioned look of the electric range and the new fangled fridge. Love the beams and the wide floor boards. I love the traditional feel and the modern convenience. It's even in a thatched cottage. Swoon. My love affair with English country style kitchens continues. This lovely room is by Robert and Tamsin Allen of Fawn Interior Design Studio.

Hex Cottage at Wilderness Reserve

I could not resist sharing just one more property available at Wilderness Reserve....because look how cute this cottage is!!! What a perfect setting for a little romantic honeymoon getaway. A dreamy thatched former forester's cottage for two, electricity-free, candlelit and set in woods overlooking its own meadow. In Hex Cottage, built in the Regency 'cottage orné' (or decorated cottage) style, an Esse wood-burning range in the kitchen provides all the hot water and heating, though there are open fires in the sitting room and bedroom. In the kitchen, think original bread ovens, brick floors and butler sinks. Swing open the door to discover your own herb garden, store for the all-important logs and wilderness beyond. In the bedroom, candles and a fairy-tale canopy above the king-size Hypnos bed set the scene.

The Farmhouse at Wilderness Reserve

Wilderness Reserve consists of 5,000 acres of gorgeous landscape in Suffolk, England containing a unique collection of restored manors, cottages, a farmhouse - all available to book for what would be a very unique stay. I am completely smitten with the Farmhouse. Formerly the estate's home farm and without doubt its oldest property, the Farmhouse sits in the heart of the hamlet within the estate's Arcadian pleasure grounds. Downstairs, the central triple-height hall opens up to a beamed sitting room with comfy sofas, inglenook fireplace and fluffy throws as well as the large kitchen & dining room. Two of the six en suite bedrooms are the on the ground floor and the rest are discovered up an oak staircase with its bridge across the hall. Everything here is SO pretty! That pink!!!! (Thanks for the link Edward!)

An English manor farm

I am crushing on this quintessentially English manor farm in Norfolk, U.K., home to interior designer Carlos GarciaWhile quite traditional it has elements that are a bit more eclectic and less country than you would expect. A bench painted matt black, pale blue walls, Eastern fabrics such as suzani and ikat....all make this very intriguing.
