Round the back of the shops

Posted on Mon, 19 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

“This award-winning house was designed by architect Hugh Strange in 2010. It is cleverly tucked behind a line of Victorian buildings on Evelyn Street in Deptford; it unfolds over the ground floor of the original period terrace, opening onto a private courtyard garden and the new single-storey house beyond. A contemporary palette of materials including concrete, glass, cross-laminated timber and hurricane-felled Nicaraguan hardwood has been used to dramatic effect throughout.”

A zen haven opens off a common foyer of a Victorian era terrace. Bespoke joinery, windows opening to courtyards allowing light to flood in, wood lined walls and ceilings all define this ground floor flat in London’s Deptford. This simple oasis was for sale through The Modern House but saddly it’s under contract. Doesn’t stop us from popping these ideas away in our inspiration files.

From its elegant orangery style window and high ceilings in the living room to the cosy kitchen, from the verdant garden back through to the sweet and most likely hard-working scullery come laundry this London maisonette in Brondesbury Road has stolen my heart. Now if only I could move to London during the pandemic (my whole country is isolating from the world) I’d make it mine. For sale via UK historical home estate agency and sister agency to The Modern House Inigo.

Casa Karina

Posted on Wed, 16 Jun 2021 by KiM

Jo and I have featured so many incredibly beautiful homes in Ibiza over the years and as a result I yearn to visit this magical place. Casa Karina (and several other villas) is a rental property of Amsterdam-born Tom van Amerongen who fell in love with Ibiza and moved there in 2009. It would be a dream to be able to stay here and enjoy the sun, warmth and the surroundings.

Neutral boho renovation in London

Posted on Mon, 16 Nov 2020 by midcenturyjo

Yes, yes I know it’s another property from The Modern House but I’m using the same excuse as last time :p Light filled and lovely with its restrained neutral colour palette, raw materials and contemporary living within a Victorian shell. I’d be happy to spend my days in lock down tending to a thriving indoor jungle. Walsingham Road, London E5 for sale via The Modern House.

“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.
