Such a well considered balance. All chocolate box thatched cottage on the outside. All modern living expectations on the inside. Icing on the cake? More than enough historical character internally preserved to keep you smiling sweetly. Gloucestershire Cottage by Sarah Delaney Design.
This 1930’s semi-detached, 6 bedroom home in London is something I can definitively get behind as it is filled with some of my favourite things. Mid-century vintage furnishings, an epic plant wall, crittall windows, ballsy floral stair carpet and dreamy tile bathrooms. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.
As if my first post today didn’t have you scheming and dreaming of a way to move into a wonderful old farmhouse on Shelter Island then this post will tempt you even further. The renovation of this former fisherman’s cottage is also by SchappacherWhite Architects DPC. In fact it was the architects’ own home until they sold it (lucky new owners). The 1904 house underwent a sympathetic transformation creating a year round home just right for family and friends. The interiors feature natural materials and a neutral colour palette of whites and sands contrasted with black provides a perfect backdrop for a mix of modern, antique and found pieces.

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it helps if it’s somewhere super stylish. (Bonus points for the Shogun Floor Lamp by Mario Botta.) 2T Thorel Office by A.R. Rivani.
Retro futuristic with arched windows and sinuous spiral staircase this Glebe, Sydney home designed by Chenlow Little and part of Contemporary Hotels‘ stand-out stable of luxury accommodation is as stunning as it is intriguing. The killer view from the bedroom is just the icing on the cake. A real Designers Retreat.
