An 18th century vintage-filled cottage

Posted on Sun, 29 Apr 2018 by KiM

I am a sucker for all things vintage, so I had to share this home in Somerset, England I found via Period Living because the homeowner clearly shares my obsession. Built in 1750 and purchased a few years back by Hana Reynolds and her family, they had the home rewired, re-plastered, a new kitchen added and the bathroom renovated. Filled with mostly traditional style antiques, a bit of mid-century and all kinds of beautiful vintage floral artwork, it is a throw-back to its roots and is absolutely charming.

A barn conversion in Yorkshire

Posted on Sun, 18 Mar 2018 by KiM

Nothing beats a wonderfully executed conversion, like this barn located in Yorkshire, England. I absolutely love the vintage details with some modernism via some black and yellow. Exposed beams, stone walls and tongue and groove panelling make this extra special. Available as a location home via jj Locations.

60’s Beach Pad

Posted on Fri, 9 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

It’s almost the weekend baby and I couldn’t think of a more perfect chill out pad than this colourful bohemian getaway designed by Allison Bloom at Dehn Bloom. Fun, fab and family friendly with just enough retro rattan to make my head spin. It’s California coastal cool at its best.

Welcome to Dennis Severs’ house

Posted on Tue, 6 Feb 2018 by KiM

Jo featured this home quite some time ago but as it is one of the most magical homes I have ever seen I wanted to share it again, with more breathtaking photos. Welcome to Dennis Severs’ house.

Dennis Severs’ House at 18 Folgate Street, Spitalfields is more than just a time capsule. It is both a breathtaking and an intimate portrait of the lives of a family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the 20th Century. As you follow their fortunes through the generations, the sights, smells and sounds of the house take you into their lives. It was Dennis Severs’ intention that as you enter his house it is as if you have passed through the surface of a painting, exploring with your senses and imagination a meticulously crafted 18th Century world.

This was, up until recently, the Vancouver home of stylist and designer Jennifer Scott and it is sooooo charming and girly and eclectic. You can read all about it in this blog post, but I just wanted to point out how awesome her finds are from her trip to Morocco, and how evident her love of vintage finds is. Her home is so fantastic I had to include a part 2 coming up later of the outdoor spaces.
