Right there’s no beating around the bush this week, get your coat we’re off to Sweden. And we may be there for some time because this is a house we need to visit in detail. It’s a masterclass of muted colours but with a twist. Look up at the ceilings. They have often been painted…

It has five bedrooms and is on the market for £2,625,000 via The Modern House. It’s a detached house, which already makes it unusual for London, and was given its name as,…

It has been completely modernised by the current owners; Julian Dunkerton, the co-founder of the cult clothing company, Superdry so it has a contemporary twist on the traditional property.

Just one property for you this week. Because it’s a rather special one and I wanted to have a proper look around. It’s an early design by the architect Norman Foster, who, if you’re not up on your architects is like the Mick Jagger or Paul McCartney of his world. A sort of architectural rock…

Three beauties from The Modern House this week. The first is on for just under four million quid but let’s not bother about that. It’s been done by David Adjaye, who does amazing things that we can’t afford but can, perhaps be inspired by. It’s called Fog House because of the diffused light that enters…

Starting off with a house tour rather than a house for sale this week. This belongs to the artist and designer Sarah Hamilton who, having sworn never to renovate a house again, fell hook, line and sinker for this 1960s gem back in 2007. It was in a terrible state (much like The Mad House)…
