Quirky with colour and pattern 

I continue to be in awe of the creativity and eclectic use of pattern and colour of Tiffany Duggan. This home is no exception. A lovely, colourful project for a young gentleman on the very picturesque Hillgate Place. Moorish influences, interesting textures and bold colours were used to add character and authenticity to this quirky Notting Hill townhouse.

The Weaver's House

"The idea of home is a primal and a personal construct. Our mission is to create homes that support us practically, engage us sensorially and nourish us emotionally. Each home is a rational, passionate project—a labour of love."

A couple of days ago Kim feature the time capsule Dennis Severs' house. Today I'm once again in Spitalfields, once again in a weaver's house but this time it's a contemporary yet sympathetic renovation of a Huguenot Townhouse by Chan + Eayrs.

Welcome to Dennis Severs' house 

Jo featured this home quite some time ago but as it is one of the most magical homes I have ever seen I wanted to share it again, with more breathtaking photos. Welcome to Dennis Severs' house.

Dennis Severs’ House at 18 Folgate Street, Spitalfields is more than just a time capsule. It is both a breathtaking and an intimate portrait of the lives of a family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the 20th Century. As you follow their fortunes through the generations, the sights, smells and sounds of the house take you into their lives. It was Dennis Severs’ intention that as you enter his house it is as if you have passed through the surface of a painting, exploring with your senses and imagination a meticulously crafted 18th Century world.

A cozy and colourful Victorian home in London

I love the eclectic and cozy vibe of this Victorian terraced home in London with its random mix of decidedly vintage furnishings, pink/peach walls and fun wallpaper. Fun, functional and family-friendly. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.

Masculine glamour at Casa Botelho

João Botelho, interior and furniture designer at Casa Botelho based in London, is drawn to masculine glamour, symmetry and to-die-for statement lighting. Even if it means bashing your head frequently on the massive light fixture hanging low over the bed. This is João's glorious four-storey East London townhouse (including a couple of iterations of his living room).
