Posted on Sun, 25 Sep 2022 by KiM

A 19th century castle in an ideal location 1 hour from Geneva, 40 minutes from Lyon and less than 2 hours by TGV from Paris (TGV station 10 minutes away). Fenced park of 28 Ha with 2 ponds and a river. Nearly 3000m2 of floor space built and/or renovated at different period, give this property a lot of charm and a strong potential for all your projects (equestrian center, leisure, conference, or residential complex). You will also benefit from a guardian’s house and several outbuildings including two stables and horse boxes, bread oven… If you can see past what is mostly terrible furniture this castle is a dream. Such stunning details and sooo much space to decorate! For sale via Sotheby’s.

A 16th century castle in Switzerland

Posted on Sun, 4 Sep 2022 by KiM

Set in idyllic lush green surroundings in middle of the village of Ependes, this outstanding 16th century property, restored and converted into a home is a unique place in which to live. A peaceful haven in the Fribourg countryside! The Chateau rooms are bathed in natural light, have high ceilings and are full of charm with their original beams. This property includes the main building with some 420 sq m of living area, a building for relaxing on summer evenings, a “guest” annex with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, and a further annex of 2 apartments. For one’s enjoyment in the vast 7,549 sq m park are the infinity pool and summer kitchen. Right next door is the hammam, sauna and solarium, in the construction annexed to the pool.
This Swiss castle is magnificent inside and out! Photos and listing via Le Figaro Properties and Properstar.

The maximalist home of Hollis Loudon

Posted on Thu, 1 Sep 2022 by KiM

I came across the portfolio of designer Hollis Loudon Puig of Hollis Loudon Interiors and this first project blew my mind. After some brief sleuthing I discovered it was Hollis’ own maximalist, whimsical home in Loudonville, NY. that she had gut-renovated. It is A LOT of colour and pattern and then some more pattern and I know it’s not to everyone’s taste but I soooo admire her creativity and uniqueness. She even has a room devoted to antique Christmas decorations!

Set discreetly on Queensdale Road, in a conservation area near Holland Park, is this generous four-bedroom Victorian home. At the back of the maisonette, a leafy garden, perfect for languorous afternoons soaking up the sun, extends 50 ft behind the house. In front, the living room overlooks a pretty terrace of pastel-coloured houses. The house has been decorated by its current owner, an actress, in a playful and eclectic style inspired by her time spent working at Graham & Green furniture store in Portobello. It is currently filled with a unique combination of antique pieces and colourful furnishings, which provide the perfect backdrop for her art and ceramics.
This home could not be more quaint, inviting and cozy. Give me a big mug of tea, a book and an afghan and plop me on a chair with a cat and leave me be 🙂 Currently for sale via Inigo.
