A mid-century modern location home

Mid-century modern architecture always makes my design juices flow and this home is doing just that. A location home available via jj Locations, it is so open flows beautifully and THOSE WINDOWS! The decor could be SO much better so I am sitting here re-decorating it over and over in my head. Built by the architecture company Edgley Design, Pear Tree House was shortlisted for the Stephen Lawrence prize and awarded a RIBA London Award in 2015. The house has been built around a 100 year old pear tree, which was once part of a Victorian fruit orchard, creating an internal courtyard bringing light and air to the centre of the building. The house is long and thin, and the layout is arranged around the changing light of the day with the lowered snug in the centre of the building forming cosy retreat with views out into the garden. The building was designed to blend into its wooded back land context as far as possible and views through the building are defined by slender vertical elements which echo the experience of looking through trees. The ground floor walls are cast in concrete with vertical timber and contrast the polished concrete floor creating abstracted reflections. The house features crafted joinery made from oak veneered ply with brass detailing. Two handmade chandeliers, hang in the double height void spaces at either end of the glass link. The smooth ply finish staircases create dramatic, naturally lit spaces from the roof lights above.

When bits of colour shine against white

I love this Victorian home I found via jj Locations. Bright white walls and painted floors make the perfect backdrop for subtle bits of colours added through vintage mid century chairs, art, a touch of wallpaper and accessories. Yes, I apparently have a thing with Victorian homes in the UK. They are always fabulous.

Broadhurst Gardens

I wanted to share another British location home available via lordshippark.com. I am not usually much of a fan of pastel colours, but the large, rough around the edges reception room that is accented in pinks and blues is really pretty - especially the ceiling details. With a rustic, semi-industrial kitchen and an outdoor space to swoon over, this period home is cozy and so soooo lovely.

Five Doors Down

HELLOOOOOOOO dream home! I have said it before and I will never stop saying it - there is nothing I love more than a period home filled with mid-century and random vintage furnishings and lighting. Five Doors Down is a location home in the UK (of course, because they have the most incredible  homes) that is funky and just my style. Especially when there is an appearance by a black leather Togo sectional. Available via lordshippark.com.

A Victorian period home in London

It isn't often that a home is so beautiful it practically has me in tears. This is one of those homes. This very large, 4 story Victorian home in London has been furnished with junk shop, auction and eBay finds. The kind of finds you can't find anywhere around the Ottawa area, and the kind I imagine salivating over if I ever have the opportunity to visit London, or Paris, or any other city with unimaginably fantastic flea markets. Welcome to my dream home, courtesy of the one and only, Shoot Factory
