What do I love about this London townhouse? The custom library shelves and the cosy wood-burning fire. The moody rooms and the conservatory with its traditional English greenhouse feel. The bespoke dressing room (look at that clever shoe storage) and the marble bathrooms. And the shutters in the bedroom and the secret rooftop terrace and the backyard and the … and the … Chelsea Townhouse by AND.
“A former ballroom is the setting of this exquisitely designed two-bedroom apartment. It is situated on highly sought-after Courtfield Gardens in Kensington, with a private balcony terrace overlooking a verdant churchyard square, to which it has resident’s access … The design seizes on the dramatic scale offered by four-meter ceilings and huge south-facing French windows at the front aspect.”
Apologies for posting more amazing homes from The Modern House. I had no idea that Kim had posted one of their properties yesterday until after I had uploaded these fabulous pics but I don’t think you’ll mind. I mean look at this apartment! The soaring ceilings, the Crittall wall, that verdant balcony with views over a churchyard AND all in Kensington. Out of my price range but a girl can dream. Courtfield Gardens for sale via The Modern House.
Jessica Helgerson and her family used to live in a tiny house on their land outside Portland, Oregon. Now they have spread out just a little. Their new home is a classic American farmhouse, a collaboration between Jessica and her architect husband Yianni Doulis. Simple, practical and beautiful, new with an old soul.

A little jewel box of an apartment in Sydney’s Potts Point. Rich colours, an eclectic mix of furniture, surrounded by life’s treasures and mementos, of course a wall of books and to top it off an iconic view. Contemporary living in an Art Deco building done right. I want to move in. By Weir Phillips Architects.
Bringing my loft dreams to life in this dreamy industrial space created by Studio Bakker. In organic succession, Studio Bakker renovated, redesigned and styled this former archive attic in a historic Amsterdam canal house, transforming it into a loft style home consisting of five connected floors under two roofs. An enchanting route leads to an oasis of peace and quiet, decorated with earthy materials and corresponding color palette with natural light pouring in from various sides. A Wabi-sabi aesthetic provides the lens through which modern and vintage design pieces mix with a host of honest materials – including old and new woods, loam and granite, steel and aluminum, leather and linen. The styling subtly references the wealth of cultures housed beneath these roofs.
