Well last week’s property went down like a lead balloon didn’t it? Hopefully you’ll like this week’s choices better. This is De Montalt Mill, in Bath, which is a four bedroom maisonette about ten miles from Bristol and is on the market for offers in excess of £850,000. You get the ground and lower ground…

Today’s selection of beautiful rooms is definitely giving me house envy. But, at the same time, they are good for inspiration. Not that I need any incentive to change my house. I would say we are in a perpetual state of “nearly there” and I can’t decide if that’s because that’s probably true for everyon,e…

MannMade Furniture By Sebastian Mann

8th February 2017
[MannMade London] Battersea collection, Edna mirror, dark, alt, £155

This is a brand new line of furniture by the architect and designer Sebastian Mann and with prices starting at £155, I think it’s one we should be taking a closer look at. It’s refined and elegant but also quite masculine and the strong clean lines would work well in both modern and traditional interiors.…

Right so first up let’s be honest about the headline, which was created to tempt you all in. This post will NOT help you create the perfect entrance hall. There I’ve said it.

These are not necessarily rooms that you want to live in or slavishly copy but are designed, instead, to inspire and, well yes it’s Monday, delight. They might be rooms that you would never dream of living in but are just lovely to…
