As eclectic as they come

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?

St Lukes Mews

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! ;)

A converted Victorian dairy 

Far away in the land of Notting Hill is a beautiful old brick building that was a former dairy. Architect Theo Otten happened upon the magical structure and created a voluminous, minimalist home fit for a king...or an art collector. For sale by Domus Nova
