The latest incarnation of Nikki Tibbles' home

Nikki Tibbles is a famous British florist whose home I have featured a couple of times over the past several years here when it was for sale (and didn't sell) and then here when it was up for rent. Now Nikki's 1890 5 story absolutely incredible residence is available as a location property. I would have to put this stunner in one of the top 5 I have featured in the 8 years of this blog's existence. It has so much life and energy, and quirkiness and boldness, and endless personality. Someone needs to shoot a movie here.

Hard core

It does not get much more hard core than this. A new location property (4300 sq ft victorian semi detached) available via Shoot Factory. I don't think I need to say more. :)

Goodwill Hunting

I had to revisit the home of interior designer Caecilia Potter as it is one of my all-time favourite homes we have featured on the blog. A Victorian mansion in Melbourne, Australia, this home is spectacular in its stateliness, architecture, furnishings....everything. It is EVERYTHING. (Photos: Atticus & Milo and The Design Files)

Heaven is a pumphouse

I have always said that New Zealand is God's country. Perhaps I need to look a little closer to home, to the beautiful, unspoilt wilderness of Tasmania. Today we are heading to heaven in a pumphouse. Decommissioned in the 90s the Lake St Clair hydroelectric pumphouse lay empty having defeated a number of developers until Simon Currant stepped in in 2004. Finally in 2015 after a decade of hard work Pumphouse Point, a boutique hotel of 18 rooms, designed by Cumulus Studio, opened its doors. Two buildings ,one onshore the other at the end of the flume (jetty), provide the accommodation and facilities. The rooms are contemporary cool with a nod to the industrial but really it's all about the wilderness. And truly it's a slice of paradise.

A Notting Hill townhouse

This Notting Hill townhouse was designed by my new favourite interior designer Hubert Zandberg. I absolutely adore his very eclectic spaces with their random mélange of disparate eras that just really works. It amazes me that someone can pull this off so effortlessly. Now I don't usually start off my home tour posts with a bathroom photo...but the one above is exactly what I want to do in my bathroom (a photo of it is in this post).
