Starting off in Wimbledon this week with this three bedroom duplex apartment which is on the market with The Modern House for £1,175,000. It’s mainly about the kitchen with its soft greeny grey cupboards, crittall windows and wooden island. It’s a gorgeous space that has the sitting room at one end – you can just…

It’s Friday so it must be time to poke around other people’s houses and see if we want to spend that fantasy lottery win or just keep our real money and use it to buy the inspiration seen on these pages. This week they’re both former industrial buildings which have been converted and are available…

Two very different properties for you this week. First up might be a bit of a treat for all you Crittall window fans out there – yes that includes me. It was built, in 1934, as the country residence of WF Crittall, the technical director of the Crittall Metal Window Company and it’s on the…

It’s a short working week this week  – first of several at this time of year so I thought I would start with this summery office space in this converted Victorian schoolhouse in south east London. It’s on the market via The Modern House for, deep breath, £2,495,000 but if we can’t buy it we…

Happy Friday everyone. Or happy any day you happen to be reading this. We’re just going to one house this week because a) you’re all out hunting for Easter Eggs and running around in the sun and b) – the real reason – it’s such a great house we’re going to have a really good…

It’s been a busy week this week so only two houses for you to look around today. On Monday I went to Nottingham with Sophie Robinson (judge on The Great Interior Design Challenge and one of my guest bloggers) for a project we are doing with Hillary’s Blinds later in the year. We were chatting…

Three very diverse properties for you this week so we’ll see what you make of this lot. First up is this modernist house in Merseyside which is on the market for £2,750,000 via Savills. It’s in a conservation area about 12 miles from Liverpool and no, I’m not sure how they got permission to build…

Do you ever look at clothes in magazines or in shops and fall completely in love with them but know they won’t suit you? When I was younger I would have bought them anyway believing that loving something was enough but age (and a little bit of wisdom) have caught up with me and now…

Right this one’ll wake you up. It’s a tale of two halves this week – one a completely over the top luxurious, glamorous Dolce and Gabbana of a house and one an oasis of minimal Armani calm. Which one will you go for? We’re going in at the deep end with this two bedroom, three…

Well you know what they say – it’s all about location and this one wins on for that. It’s in Chester and it’s on the market with Savills for £1,650,000, which is about a tenth of what it would cost in London. Which doesn’t make it right but does make it affordable in a sort…
