A labour of love

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.

Sag Harbor

When your life is frantic, when the world is pawing at you over and over and over, when you want to stop the bus and just get off remember there are oases of calm out there. Little islands of simple beauty. This is one of them. Bookmark it and open it up when you need a visual pick-me-up. Sag Harbor by Steven Gambrel.

An update of a traditional home

This home in Knightsbridge, London is a great example of taking traditional architecture and giving it a contemporary, elegant, and sophisticated update. The chinoiserie panels, velvet upholstery, marble fireplaces, statement light fixtures, modern kitchen and other touches make this home gorgeous and glamorous. Hats of to Staffan Tollgård Design Group for nailing this one. (P.S. Send in your pets on furniture entries to kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net or tag them in IG with #dtipetsonfurniture)

Classic style and colours

Next to the definition of classic decor is a photo of Alabama interior designer Andrew Brown giving a thumbs up. This home is so elegant and sophisticated yes manages to be understated and even a bit masculine. In creamy whites and dark wood tones, it is really beautiful and so well curated. (More of his projects can be found here and here).
