Entries in British (196)
A crazy eight days of work ahead of me. Annoying when the real world impinges on the blog world isn't it? I'll be short on words and long on inspiration this week. Today I'm escaping into the listings at Domus Nova like this wonderful 2 bedroom apartment for sale in Westgrove, W2 London. If I had the asking price (and I don't) and the owner would leave it just as it is I'd move right in.
I thought this post might cheer Jo up and make her forget she's sick. It is an apartment in a converted Victorian school house in London. With alot of re-configuring to make the space more liveable and bright, and some crazy eclectic designs, interior design studio Avocado Sweets turned this space into a super fun, totally creative and full of personality dwelling for the homeowners. Complete with Penguin book cover wall - look familiar Jo?
I have been a fan of interior designer and style writer Rita Konig for eons (since her days at Domino) and was shocked to discover we have never featured her work. Better late than never I suppose. She is all about casual sophistication and mixing colours and patterns that entice the senses. Gorg.
I thought on this beautiful Sunday I would share one of the cutest homes I have ever seen. It is a completely refurbished (by Fossey Arora) 3 story mews home in London's St. Lukes Mews that happens to be where the movie Love, Actually was filmed. It is SO GORGEOUS! The dark exterior makes it modern and stand out from all the other homes, the top floor kitchen/dining/living room combo is bright and inviting, the 2nd floor master bedroom suite is warm and relaxing, and the ground floor features a cozy sitting room and guest bedrooms. I love that the home has history, and was decorated traditionally but with lots of modern touches to keep it fresh and current. It is pretty much perfection. It is currently for sale with Domus Nova if someone wants to scoop it up! ;)
