OK. OK. I may have changed my mind. Not about the skill of London-based interior designers Forbes Rix but about what cottage of theirs I want. The conservatory/kitchen in this house is just what we all need in these times of social distancing. Who needs to go out?

“We are passionate about creating unique, individual, timeless homes where warmth and functionality are paramount. We love colour combined with texture and natural materials, creating stylish, eclectic, comfortable homes where treasured possessions still have their place alongside the contemporary.”

If cottagecore is all the rage for 2021 then I’d like this cottage by Forbes Rix. A fabulous celebration of colour. Contemporary and light-filled. Traditional and eclectic.

A fabulous English family home

Colour doesn’t have to scream at you “Look at me. Look at me.” Colour can surround you quietly, uplift you, calm you, delight you. This lovely Georgian house in Lewes, East Sussex by Cave Interiors is just such a place. Fabulous family fun.

A renovated 1700 stone home in England

Sharing another period home that I have fallen in love with thanks to Shoot Factory. This Grade II listed property was built around 1700. It includes a 5 bedroom restored and renovated stone home with outbuildings including a restored barn and man cave. The exterior has all the charm you could want in an old English home, while the interior has beautiful original details with some modern touches. (Photographer: Richard Oxford)

Ebony and Ivory

The designer calls the project “Ebony and Ivory”. I call it a sophisticated, contemporary home with not only a play on black and white but texture and the clean lines of modern design.  By Chicago-based interior design firm SKIN.
