A farmhouse on the Yorkshire Moors

Posted on Tue, 21 Nov 2023 by KiM

The design of this Yorkshire farmhouse was inspired by the surrounding moors and architecture and design firm Dunning & Everard created a wonderfully inviting and comfortable home within these vaulted spaces (I love a tall ceiling!). Some of my favourite elements: to die for bookcases in several rooms, a fireplace, a gloriously dark green kitchen with punchy zellige tiles and breathtaking views. (Photos: Brent Darby)

European vibes in a Washington home

Sharing another unexpected interior by Studio Gusto – this time for a home in Washington, D.C.. What a lovely surprise this would be walking through the front door. Also I am having a serious dose of library envy. A must-have in the next house! Photos: Stacy Zarin Goldberg.

Stylish in Valencia

Ornate plaster details and stunning floors set the stage for a sophisticated mix of mid century, traditional and contemporary pieces in this Valencia home by Estudio María Santos. Timeless and functional yes but always with that certain something, that style. Favourite details? Dining in a library and the art … and the vintage design classics … and … and …

A historic Tudor manor in Sussex

Posted on Sun, 24 Sep 2023 by KiM

Wings Place, sometimes referred to as ”Anne of Cleves House’, is one of the very few Grade I listed houses in private ownership in Sussex. The property is steeped in history and has been described as one of the best timber framed Tudor houses in the county. Wings Place is architecturally typical of the Tudor era, being timber framed with handsome characteristics including a striking gable to the northern aspect with oversailing to the first floor, ornamental timbers and carved bargeboards, together with tall brick chimneys and leaded light casement windows. Internally, the characterful yet spacious accommodation benefits from excellent ceiling heights and is arranged over three floors, with wonderful oak joinery, two oak staircases and several 16th Century inglenook fireplaces. The property is superbly appointed; sympathetically blending a wealth of original period features with quality, modern fixtures and fittings. (Photos: Adam Firman)
This gorgeous and historic 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 4 reception room home is for sale via Jackson-Stops for £2,250,000. I used to think Tudor homes were very dark and….harsh is I guess a reasonable word to use. Now I think all those wood beams and angles make this style so full of character.
