A 17th century farmhouse in Provence

Posted on Thu, 3 Dec 2020 by KiM

This is one of the most beautiful homes on one of the most beautiful properties I have ever seen. This 100-acre working farm is tucked against the Luberon mountains in southern France. Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, Ken Fulk repaired the 17th-century farmhouse and revitalized the grand potager, bringing the property up to date as a peaceful getaway for long family vacations. Each room in the main house, which includes the former bergerie (now a dining room), a wine cave, two kitchens, living rooms, a library and eight bedrooms, has been furnished with a transportive mix of antique and modern pieces.

Influences of nature and Europe

Posted on Tue, 17 Nov 2020 by KiM

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.

Quince House

Posted on Sun, 1 Nov 2020 by KiM

I love this house. I love everything about it. I might have tried to go more traditional in the kitchen with lots of furniture pieces to make it look really old school. Otherwise this house is pretty much perfect. A house of three parts; a Georgian house, a former bakery, and cart barn, all centred around a mature walled garden, and cleverly stitched together to form an attractive home. Stretching to almost 3,500 sq ft, the property also includes two creative studios. Another gem of a location home located in Bedfordshire, a county in the East of England, available via Shoot Factory.

I am rendered virtually speechless over these breathtakingly beautiful spaces designed by Studio Peregalli. I will simply let you scroll. Prepare to be transported to another time and place… (Photos: Elle Decor – Simon Upton (1, 7, 8, 12), Architectural Digest Germany – Robert Rieger (2-5, 14, 15), Architectural Digest/Condé Nast (6, 10, 11), Galerie – Massimo Listri (7, 9, 13))

Berdoulat

Posted on Mon, 26 Oct 2020 by KiM

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.
