I’m still in London and I’m still lamenting the fact that I can’t afford anything at all but a girl can still live vicariously through real estate listings. I must say that I could move straight into this split level apartment in an old print works factory in East Central London between Old Street and Clerkenwell. Exposed beams, bold blue kitchen and great art. Love it all. Mitchell Street, London EC1 via The Modern House.
I’m real estate
strolling scrolling in London again. Am I crazy? The property may be amazing but the prices are eye watering. Fancy a Georgian era townhouse with a stylish modern twist slap bang in the Soho area? Do you have a fistful of dollars? Oh well we can dream can’t we. St Anne’s Court, London W1 via The Modern House.
Hubert Zandberg, one of my favourite designers for about as long as this blog has existed, was tasked with creating a Mediterranean melting pot for his client’s holiday home. He combined a paired-back blue and white colour scheme with a plethora of neutral textures and earthy elements. The mix of locally sourced finishes, bespoke furniture and vintage finds resulted in a relaxed home for the family to refuel in a spectacular setting – Torre Vedra, Ibiza. It is so serene and welcoming.
Faded grandeur, modern furniture, tribal touches, truncated torsos, a confection of a little girl’s room and a blowsy summer garden. It’s a heady mix. Séguier, Paris 6 by Isabelle Stanislas.
