When you don't want your house looking like your neighbour's. Jenn Feldman Designs - she's all about in your face bold sophistication. Drama with dark colours, graphic artwork and fabrics and all the wallpaper! I am totally in love with her style - so much so there's a part 2 to this post coming later.
I'm passionate about the neutral tones of this Greenwich Village apartment by Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent. Love the biscuit and the taupe, the tan and the ecru, the caramels, creams and whites. Don't get me started on the Tobia Scarpa Soriana sofa, the lighting, the marble and the brass. I'm loving the bedroom and the matching shower and dressing room. No I'm definitely not on the fence about the gorgeous home that the pair share with their daughter Poppy. Perfect.
What? Another London Victorian? I just can't help myself, the details of these homes always leave me craving more. Gently revived and refined, enhancing period features and the fine craftmanship of the era. This was the original builders house on a street of speculative Victorian terraces. Located in an area that had been respectable, then shabby, meant a house that was blessed with most original features intact but worn. Carefully redesigned to bring more light in where possible, but with the design emphasis on thoughtful details and the use of skilled craftsmen, rather than large design statements. It made for a calm and welcoming home, with natural flow and creative energy. By Cassandra Ellis. (For more of her work see here and here)
Close your eyes and try to imagine your idea of the quintessentially English country home. Mine has boot rooms and sculleries, flagstones and wood burners, antiques and quirky family treasures. There are bedrooms under the eaves, beams and hopefully a roll top bath. Of course there would be a big kitchen diner with room for a sofa or two and a snug for those chilly nights. The thing is I don't have to close my eyes. I just have to drink in these photos of The Stables by hám interiors. Can't get much more English ... oh maybe a chocolate labrador lying by the fire.
