Love Interiors

By now you will know how much I love an English kitchen so I thought I'd start this Surrey house tour in the kitchen and what a fabulous kitchen it is! It's not just this room that is great though. The rest of the house by Love Interiors (apt name don't you think?) is mighty fine as well.

Stalking 1

I can't believe how light, how airy this apartment is. Love the old industrial windows, the furniture, that piece of art hanging above the lovely white dining setting, the curves. The whole thing is a hip "cross between art gallery, industrial space, and home". Add the fact that it's in my fav inner-city Sydney suburb of Redfern and sometimes real estate stalking makes me very, very jealous. Link here while it lasts.

The Bunker

If a concrete home leaves us cold we'll often describe it disparagingly as a bunker. So what happens when that concrete home is actually a bunker? If it's this penthouse apartment atop a WWII above ground bunker in Hamburg, Germany what could have been sterile and oppressive is instead raw, warm and sophisticated. The loft-style space has four metre floor-to-ceiling windows, is filled with contemporary designer pieces and has two big balconies offering amazing views over the city. What makes this beautiful apartment even more exciting is that it is part of the luxury vacation accommodation offered through Welcome Beyond. It's available from March 2017. In the meantime we can daydream of a getaway to help us through the Friday grind.

A barn conversion in Berkshire

The conversion of a rundown barn in Berkshire saw London-based Indigo Design Associates create a beautiful contemporary home within the old stone walls. A soft colour palette of greys and whites is enhanced by injections of blue while natural fabrics and old timbers add warmth to the minimalist shell. Simple clean modern lines celebrate the vast barn space while private spaces are more intimate.
