A historic Tudor manor in Sussex

Posted on Sun, 24 Sep 2023 by KiM

Wings Place, sometimes referred to as ”Anne of Cleves House’, is one of the very few Grade I listed houses in private ownership in Sussex. The property is steeped in history and has been described as one of the best timber framed Tudor houses in the county. Wings Place is architecturally typical of the Tudor era, being timber framed with handsome characteristics including a striking gable to the northern aspect with oversailing to the first floor, ornamental timbers and carved bargeboards, together with tall brick chimneys and leaded light casement windows. Internally, the characterful yet spacious accommodation benefits from excellent ceiling heights and is arranged over three floors, with wonderful oak joinery, two oak staircases and several 16th Century inglenook fireplaces. The property is superbly appointed; sympathetically blending a wealth of original period features with quality, modern fixtures and fittings. (Photos: Adam Firman)
This gorgeous and historic 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 4 reception room home is for sale via Jackson-Stops for £2,250,000. I used to think Tudor homes were very dark and….harsh is I guess a reasonable word to use. Now I think all those wood beams and angles make this style so full of character.

This East Village duplex penthouse was owned by designer Alfredo Paredes and if you didn’t see the terrace photos you might assume this was located somewhere in the Mediterranean or tucked away in a Tuscan hillside. A fireplace, oversized, casement windows and 5 arched glass doors, natural white oak bookcases, panelling and cabinetry, raw plaster walls, reclaimed wood ceilings, French limestone tile floors all imbue this “it can’t be New York” vibe and the neutral colour palette of cream, brown and black perfectly offsets the architecture. This is stunning. Photos: Miguel Flores-Vianna.

Belgian midcentury

Posted on Mon, 18 Sep 2023 by KiM

Our Belgian midcentury project introduces a modern European take on a 3,100 sq foot gambrel colonial-style home primely located in Rhode Island. This house had been built in the 80s, filled with a lot of builder grade finishes and half finished renovations leaving a rather fragmented starting point for our clients. This project’s intention was an effort to sew the fragments back together whilst creating a greater connection – a sense of purpose for the home and its stewards. Here we wanted to go back to the beginning — working with natural earthen materials crafted by local artisans from tadelakt, to fine cabinet making, furniture joinery, hand forged iron work and detailed custom upholstery.
This home by Moore House Design is so tactile and filled with such exquisite fabrics and finishes. You don’t need drama with colour or pattern in a situation like this. The materials selected are dramatic in their simple beauty. Photos: Erin Little.

Old world charm in a designer’s home

Posted on Mon, 21 Aug 2023 by KiM

The warm and inviting interiors of Kara Childress’ personal home reflect an essential interlacing of old and new, resulting in an inviting and functional atmosphere to suit her lifestyle. The Italian style structure is composed of architectural elements that stand the test of time and comfort the soul. Beautiful bones provide a backdrop of good character for an array of furnishings, lightings, and the designer’s personal collection of antiques. 
This details in Kara’s home have me swooning – everything from the tile, arches, windows, wood beams, fireplaces. The history, textures and “weight” of it all is breathtaking and is so timeless and will just get more and more beautiful as time goes on.
