Another stunning home from the Luxe Houses stable. Stylish, light filled rooms overlooking the Pittwater at Palm Beach. (I recognise this beautiful home as the work of interior designer Justine Hugh-Jones.) Dream holidays are made of this. Friends, family, fabulous house and sunshine sparkling on the water.

I love everything about this California house designed by architect/designer Eric Olsen. There's the understated dark exterior, the semi-dark-painted kitchen with awesome upper display shelving, the wood stack in the dining room and modern mismatched chairs, the creative paint job in the bedroom, the tile in the bathrooms and the backyard oasis. Dreamy!!!
Originally two keepers cottages this West Sussex flint house was extended and remodelled but not into a modern McMansion. No. Something just a little more special was achieved. Newly constructed rooms were given character and warmth with the extensive use of reclaimed oak and elm timbers and old York stone slabs. A modern glass link almost disappears while allowing light to flood into this quintessentially English home. Even the "new" oak beams were hollowed out to hide modern services. Truly a labour of love. Eckensfield by Caroline Holdaway Design.
