The Househunter: Room by Room

15th February 2019

We’re heading over to west London this week to have a look at an apartment by one of my favourite designers, Suzy Hoodless, and while we’re there I thought we’d poke a virtual nose into a couple of the others which might inspire you in terms of colour and design for your own places. This…

The Househunter: Room by Room

And just like that it was Friday again. Although I say that, it might have been a slow week for you. Ours got off to an expensive start as the 17yo passed his driving test. And the insurance for a 17yo boy is earbleedingly expensive so we’re definitely down to the fantasy savings for this…

The Househunter: Old and New

1st February 2019

While trawling the corners of the internet for a suitable property for this week’s househunter post, I happened across the oldest house in Islington – a Georgian townhouse dating from the 1700s, which I thought would work in relation to the white paint discussion we’ve been having this week. And then it seemed only fair…

The Househunter: Room by Room

25th January 2019

Last week, I answered a request from many of you for cottages with low ceilings and beams, rather than lofty tall buildings, and this week I thought we’d look at a classic Victorian house which I know many of you live in and which may also deal with other issues so it’s not irrelevant to…

The Househunter: Cottage Style

18th January 2019

So many of you have asked me to feature cottages and it’s difficult to find ones that are pretty enough to show off but with valid ideas that might inspire those of you who are struggling with low ceilings, small windows and sloping floors. But I have found one. This former village hall may not…

The Househunter Room by Room

11th January 2019

We end this week as we came in with a property that, while not beige, is definitely at the warm end of the neutral spectrum. Let’s see what you think. It’s a one bedroom apartment on a tree-lined avenue in West London and is on the market with The Modern House for £695,000. The colour…

The Househunter: Room by Room

4th January 2019

And there we are right back in it with a virtual visit to our first house for sale of 2019. And it’s a beaut. A converted jam factory in London, it’s a four bedroom maisonette (which means duplex for US readers) and is on the market with The Modern House for £1,795,000. I’m aware that…

The Househunter: Room by Room

21st December 2018

So it’s a toss up this week between those who want an escape from all the Christmas madness and those who are too busy to think about, or want to see, anything else. I’m pretty sure that none of you are actually buying houses though so I thought I would just round up a few…

The Househunter: Room by Room

14th December 2018

Welcome to Friday – we made it. This has been a fantastically busy week with a trip to Brighton to see Sophie and do podcast planning, a visit to my mother near Worcester and a shoot with Trinny London. Today there is a shoot in the house which is very January-based so I’m all over…

The Househunter: Room by Room

7th December 2018

And just like that it’s Friday again. The year seems to start slowly, gather pace around April and then gradually speed up until November when you blink and it’s January again. So this is nearly the end of Househunter for the year as, while I have often moved in December, I’m not sure I’ve ever…
