Light and white kitchen

The redesign and extension of this 1750s building by Reed Watts Architects shifted the focus away from a busy road in front towards the rear, opening a kitchen and dining addition onto a more secluded rear courtyard. Bi-fold doors blur the line between inside and out while light floods in from its southerly aspect. Central to all is the simple and stylish kitchen by deVOL. Beautiful inspiration.

Friday drinks

Thank God that week is over! Time for a little after work drinkie or two. Put on some new lipstick and run a comb through your hair. You'll want to look your best because we are meeting up at Eden Locke in Edinburgh. Grzywinski+Pons took an 18th Century Georgian mansion and its 20th Century extension down to their bones and created this über stylish 72 room hotel, cafe and bar. Not that I'm suggesting we stay overnight. I don't know you that well ;)

A mock Tudor-style house in England

I love the gothic vibe and drama that comes with a Tudor-style house. This home in Hertfordshire, England is gorgeous and plays up on the Tudor architecture with dark blue and black accent colours. Some bold choices like the lighting and stools in the kitchen, a ceiling in high gloss navy and another in red, and black tile in the bathrooms help add to the drama. Another amazing project London-based Studio Duggan.

A colourful family home in London

LLI Design recently completed a total redesign and refurbishment of a 7 storey townhouse in Highgate, a leafy and desirable part of London. By changing the dynamics of the spaces involved they maximized the available space creating a colourful and contemporary residence. This award winning project has a harmonious feel as you move up the house, but each floor has its own character. The end result? A warm and inviting family home.

Delicious indecision

I can't make up my mind. Which room makes my spine tingle the most?The living room? The kitchen? The bedroom? Perhaps the bathroom? Why choose? This Pimlico house by Rose Uniacke is divine.
