I would give anything to be able to spend summers in a place like this. How beautiful!!! Faraway Farm is a remote five bedroom rural farmhouse in Carmarthenshire accessible only by foot. (or a 4×4!) Approached down a mile long rough farm track where a vehicle can be parked up, and then on foot across the pedestrian bridge over the ford towards the house. The house is completely off-grid so power is limited. The interiors are dark and atmospheric and for a new renovation appear to be completely authentic. There are log burners in the house, open fireplaces, a mixture of stone on the ground floor and wood floors on the first and second floors. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.
There is something so incredibly peaceful and comforting about a home filled with white and pale wood. This 1970s structure underwent major renovations and the results leave you to believe the home has been around much longer than that. A very neutral colour palette and many European antiques are a welcome addition. I could not love this more. (And that antique stone sink in the kitchen! SWOON!) Designed by Shannon Bowers.

I continue my quest to find the most beautiful restored homes which seem to all be in London, or somewhere in France. They almost bring me to tears I am so enamoured with the history and the patina and the craftsmanship. This one is entirely renovated and reconfigured in recent years, care of Mosley and Mann architects and I applaud them for not turning this into some blasphemous modern shell. Bermondsey Street, for sale via The Modern House.
My heart continues to experience palpitations when I find homes with original centuries-old details and a traditional vibe. The character that oozes from the stone walls and old flooring really makes me crave a home with history. Berdoulat is located in Bath (U.K.) and specialise in period buildings and restoration, and these spaces from their portfolio are about to give me a stroke.
I had to share another of Julie Hillman‘s projects because there were so many drool worthy spaces in her portfolio. This one is located in Bridgehampton, and though she embraced the typical beach theme for the area it’s really not that typical. Add in some very modern artwork, and some modern furnishings and lighting and you have another eclectic mix that she seems to ace.
