Keeping my industrial loft obsession going strong is this absolutely incredible apartment on the top floor of a converted factory in the British town of Loughborough. I’m not sure what I’m dying over most – the exposed brick, the ceiling trestles, the collection of Togo sofas, the massive antique crystal chandeliers, allllllll those windows, the view, the copper bathtub, the marble sink…… OMG!!! Available as a location space via Shoot Factory.
I had to start at the back of this house where the kitchen is located because I am in loooove. My kitchen is about the size of this glorious marble-topped island, so to have all this space plus it fits a sofa and a dining table….*sigh*. I also really love the killer angled tile backsplash and one of my all-time favourite pendants lighting up the island (Lampe Gras). The rest of this location home in London is pretty sweet too.

Last week I shared the work of San Francisco based interior designer Jeff Schlarb. You didn’t I was going to stop with just one house? Of course not. He calls it Rad Elegance. I call it mid century modern meets restrained glam. Fabulous!
I have a “thing” for lighting. Table lamps and floor lamps, wall washers and pendants. Layer upon layer of ambiant lighting. I think it’s like adding jewellery to an outfit. Little sparkles and highlights. Time for a little lighting eye candy, in particular pendants.
You can find great pendant lights for less at Destination Lighting. They are a pioneer in the light fixture industry, with roots tracing back to Seattle, Washington in 1917. With 100 years of experience featuring brick and mortar showrooms throughout the northwest, they offer thousands of lighting products that fit every need and budget. Their goal is to make every home a little brighter.
Two houses, one title, modern yet old with it’s foundations carved into the ancient Sydney sandstone. I’m stalking “Villa Moderna” in Darlinghurst. The main house furnished. The other empty. Think of it as the ultimate annex. Altogether one hell of a house. The plans are key to understanding this one. Link here while it lasts.
