There is nothing pretentious or precious in this gorgeous heritage home in Wellesley, Massachusetts designed by Katie Rosenfeld. It is vibrant and youthful with a hint of elegance. I love this home so much but I can’t quite decide which I love more – the dining room or the kitchen. (Photos: Read McKendree)
How to make a bland apartment in the middle of the city cozy yet sophisticated? Layers! Add in lots of art (large scale works!), lighting, comfortable furniture and pillows in soft fabrics. Alllll the fabrics! I adore all the upholstered pieces, particularly in the bedrooms that add to the comfort and give a cocooning vibe. Hats off to Gari Camaisa for the fabulous job designing this Sutton Place, NYC condo.
“A 20 year old builder-grade home, that required a facelift to fit the new owners’ personalities and incredible, European inspired taste. Custom cabinetry, unique lighting and textural materials play in perfect harmony with one another, to make this renovation a success!”
The kitchen is inspiring, the laundry clever and colourful but my heart belongs to the little jewel box of a bar/butler’s pantry. No, more of a bar in brilliant deep blue. Willows Residence by Indianapolis-based Whittney Parkinson Design
Who doesn’t love a light-filled, family friendly kitchen diner? It’s the hub of the home. A place where all the family gathers. Kids sitting at the banquette chattering, playing while parents prepare meals. Conversation and cooking. Perfect, just like this kitchen by Dallas-based Carrie Hatfield Interior Design.

What a dream! Houses like this make me want to cry they’re so beautiful. This magnificent seven-bedroom, Grade I-listed house occupies an excellent position in the sought-after village of Croscombe, at the edge of the Mendip Hills in Somerset. The interior is replete with exquisite architectural features, ecclesiastical motifs and Palladian cornicing. Internal living space extends to over 4,500 sq ft across three storeys, with further opportunity to convert the adjoining coach house and attic rooms. The Old Manor is thought to have been built in 1460, originally as a rectorial manor house. The house is characterised by roughcast, limewashed walls and a magnificent Tudor chimney pot. For sale via Inigo.
