Hello everyone and welcome to Friday’s Househunting Room Analysis post. Last week, I tried giving you a little more detail as to why I thought certain rooms worked and others didn’t and, judging by the comments, you seemed to like it so let’s do it again this week! What you liked, which I must confess…

It’s Friday and so we’re back with the very first Househunter of the year. Now, I have been reading through your feedback and many of you said you would like more diagnostics and explanations of how and why things work and so this house, which is for sale via The Modern House (for a mere £1.45m)…

Maybe it’s the effect of being bedridden for a week but there is something enormously appealing about this all white open plan converted warehouse that is this week’s Househunter property. It’s on the market for £1,470,00 via The Modern House and is located near Liverpool Street, Spitalfields and The City. Currently configured as two bedrooms, a…

Friday! At last. I have been struck down by the most vicious of vicious lurgies and while December is usually a quite month for househunters – I say that I have twice moved house on 10th December – I found this gorgeous one and thought that it was perfect for a virtual wander with a…

You know it’s the weekend when it’s time to poke around some other people’s houses and so here we are. No Black Friday deals on these ones sadly, but there might be some ideas to steal.

Can you tell what someone’s house is like from the way they dress and speak?

Now what about this for a room. You know what’s great about this – the black painted floor is scuffed but it looks great. Because the walls are well painted so it looks as if it was a deliberate choice. There are lots of rugs about at the moment which are pre-faded with uneven colour.…

We’re going to the Barbican this week, a Utopian Brutalist dream which arouses passion and fury in equal measure. These stark concrete angular buildings flourished between the 1950s and 70s as London began to rebuild after WWII and concrete was both functional and affordable, which made it the perfect material. But although beloved of architects,…

Morning! Before I start this post can I say that I am aware that some of you have been having issues seeing the pictures on your subscriber email on your phones. I have spoken to my web designer who says that it would appear to be a problem with the mechanism at the provider’s end…
