Sophie Brown Christmas (and other) styling

It takes alot for me to get excited about Christmas decor (maybe because I am bitter that I can't do much with all these damn cats around to destroy everything), but when I stumbled upon the portfolio of London based stylist/designer Sophie Brown, it took about 5 milliseconds. OMG! OMG! OMG! These first 3 photos in particular are soooo magical. And if you aren't into holiday decor I threw in some regular stuff because it's pretty fabulous too.

A converted school house in Battersea

When you would expect someone decorating a converted lofty school house to go the industrial route but instead they go with a classic Scandinavian/shabby chic look. Kudos to the owners of this home in Battersea, London for going against the grain on this one, and for the very impressive collection of antiques. And for the cute dog. This is really beautiful. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory

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.
