20th April 2018

Sometimes we look at houses that we can imagine actually buying – at least with a bit of lottery money or the selling of a single kidney. And sometimes we look at houses that we know we won’t buy but which are important in the architectural story of the country. Today is one such house.…

Another week has flown by and it’s time to go and poke around some other people’s houses again. Let’s start with this  raised ground floor flat in West London which is on with Savills for £900,000 and has two bedrooms,  both of which are decent sizes which is unusual as you often find one large…

Last year television presenter Amanda Lamb kindly guest-blogged a post on how to sell your house – sound advice which is always relevant,…

Earlier this week I went to a dinner at Habitat hosted by the television presenter and interior stylist Sophie Robinson, who was there to talk about about colour psychology and how most of us fall into four distinct seasonal personalities. That is to say that most of us will have one dominant season with elements…

I love this house. It’s too expensive and it’s too small and I would buy it tomorrow. It’s in Hackney, east London, with two bedrooms and is arranged over three floors so you’d be forever schlepping up and down stairs and I still want it. It’s on with The Modern House for £1,295,000 and it…

It’s been a busy week so I thought we’d start off here with this lovely London house that has been painted in a palette of soft muted colours. Fancy coming round? It’s in east London and it’s on the market with The Modern House for £1,350,000. There are three bedrooms and it’s part of a…

Off to west London first this week to this pretty Edwardian house which has three bedrooms and two bathrooms although that doesn’t really give a sense of the space downstairs. It’s on the market with Philip Wooller for £1,450,00 and belongs to an interior designer, which is why it’s lovely. That grey floor might look a…
