This may be my all time favourite warehouse conversion ever featured on this here blog. This beauty is a recently converted and extended ironmongers warehouse in London. THE KITCHEN!!! A total dream in tile, concrete, walnut, marble, copper, brass and brick. TO DIE FOR!!! I would stop there but I am also a new huge fan of terrazzo flooring so there’s that too. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.
As you walk along the man-made canyons of New York it pays to look up. You may just see a green tendril hanging down or glimpse a few tree tops waving in the wind. Even better if you’re high up in one of its buildings you may be teased by private green spaces below. I thought I’d share two such gardens by Brook Landscape, the first at the top of a disused fire escape in Soho and the other on a terrace in Midtown East.
It’s almost the weekend baby and I couldn’t think of a more perfect chill out pad than this colourful bohemian getaway designed by Allison Bloom at Dehn Bloom. Fun, fab and family friendly with just enough retro rattan to make my head spin. It’s California coastal cool at its best.
Built on the long, narrow site of a formed garage, this West London house is bright and light thanks to a series of courtyards and roof lights dictated by existing high boundary walls. The simple yet stylish interiors use a palette of white walls, oak floors, black framed windows and doors and cedar battens. The Courtyard House by architectural and interior design practice De Rosee Sa.
