Country Living by Heather Bullard

Heather Bullard is a contributing editor for Country Living magazine and a freelance editorial prop stylist and producer - DREAM JOB! She also lives in southern California and just finished having her DREAM HOME built. And dreamy is right! OMG I love every inch of this house. White and wood and bits of country and dabs of modern and white marble tiles and counter...I think I have died and gone to heaven. That kitchen tho'!

Slot House

I love the verticality of this modern extension to a Georgian terrace house. Renovations in the 1980s had left the floorplan confused and ceilings lowered. By inserting a glass infill between the narrow back wing of the house and the neighbour's wall the ground floor now has a soaring double height ceiling while a master suite is reached by an open tread staircase. Slot house by London-based architectural firm Studio Octopi.

Stalking in Melbourne 1

It never ceases to amaze me that a small Victorian era cottage can be hiding a large, modern extension just behind its cute, historic facade. There's even a pool and a separate studio. I'm stalking in the Melbourne suburb of Williamstown. Link here while it lasts.

Seaside simplicity

The renovation and reconfiguration of this house in Mas Nou in Spain's Catalonian region by 05 AM arquitectura was all about opening up the warren of smaller rooms into open-plan living all with access to a stunning sea view through a wall of large windows. Light, bright and spacious with finishes that are perfect for relaxed family living. Seaside simplicity.

More to love from Leanne Ford

I love this limited palette of whites and creams married with the deep warmth of the stained wooden walls. (Great inspiration for those faced with a renovation of retro examples.)  I love the luxury of a thick beni ourain rug against the raw concrete. I love the stone of the kitchen, the handthrown pottery and how the tile runs across the bathroom ceiling. I love the mid century classic pieces and the rough hewn wood. I love it all but then again I have professed my love for everything by L.A. and Pittsburgh-based interior designer Leanne Ford before.
