Stalking Ilse Crawford

Last year Ilse Crawford sold her London apartment and we all remembered how much we loved it. (You can still see the listing here.) Now Dinder House, another creation that had us swooning, is for sale through Knight Frank. Nine bedrooms, 7 reception rooms, 5 bathrooms and THAT kitchen diner in a Regency-era property set in over 21 acres in Wells, Somerset, England. Oh my I have loved this house so hard for so long. The real estate listing photographs, below, don't do the interiors justice but they do give us a stalker's peek into other areas of the house and the amazing grounds. This is also the perfect time to share my favourite part of the kitchen. Not the marble and lacquer main kitchen but the scullery next door. Both by Artichoke it's the behind the scenes pantry that I've had in my kitchen inspiration files for many a year. The link to the house listing is here. Price is on application but it does not take a stretch of the imagination to realise almost all of us can't afford it but if you can, and you buy it, can we all come round to visit?

More from Kate Hume

I have always loved this French manor house by Dutch designer Kate Hume. I had seen glimpses of it but never the whole house. On a recent revisit to the website, much to my delight, I discovered that there were more photos and, well, I certainly wasn't disappointed. It's stunning. The dialogue between old and new, the casual luxury. Kim first featured a room or two back in 2008 and I love how good design stands the test of time and the foibles of fads.

Dining under the trees

Verandah Restaurant by GamFratesi or The Ugly Duckling by Hecker Guthrie? Why choose? I'll take both.
