Traditional love

Where you expect a chandelier to be hanging in every single room. Traditional, classical, ornate, fancy schmancy, by British designer Robert Kime. (I need to find a huge sparkly chandelier for my dressing room - I am especially desperate for one now with this post).

A converted Victorian school

Every once in a while I feature a home that I completely lust over and spend hours redecorating it in my head, and this is one of those. St. Oswald's Place is located in an 1861 converted Victorian school building that was designed by architect Tony Fretton. Approached through a gated arch and across a cobbled courtyard, the house is set back from the road in a secluded pocket backed by Vauxhall City Farm. Entry is through a glass-roofed extension, which connects the main space with a guest annexe / study positioned around a cobbled courtyard garden. The living room is a beautifully curated space with soaring double-height ceiling and towering original windows. A large internal window looks into the mezzanine level above, which has two bedrooms and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. Behind the chimney stack, with its open fireplace, is the galley kitchen with windows that look over the front courtyard. A short corridor beneath the mezzanine leads to a second double-height space of similar proportions and exceptional levels of natural light. A glazed door leads to a verdant communal courtyard, shared by the six flats in the building. Currently for sale for £2.4 via The Modern House

Classic spaces by VSP Interiors

Elegant and classic, timeless with subtle modern touches, Henriette von Stockhausen and Jane Petti of British design firm VSP Interiors are creating drama with mostly traditional spaces (add in the occasional modern kitchen). I adore this first living room - the wallpaper is gorgeous and with the layers of furnishings and accessories it's busy but the resulting space works and it's fabulously bold.

Spaces by Daniela Tosca York

Before we head into the Easter long weekend (we'll still be blogging each day just a bit less than usual) here is a glimpse into the minimalist yet dramatic world of British designer Daniela Tosca York. Pretty and glam with some pink, marble and large scale art. XOXO.

Fiona Duke and dark spaces done proper

My heart will always be with the dark and dramatic, so I was pleased as punch to discover someone shares my passion for moody, inky shades. Fiona Duke is an interior designer based in Essex, U.K. and I love her eclectic, casual style. I discovered several of these fabulous photos are of her own home so she's designing and living in awesomeness.
