When we bought our first flat (a two bedroom garden apartment back in 1998 – I won’t tell you what it cost or younger readers will cry) we used to fantasise about buying the flats on the two floors above and creating one huge house. Then the woman on the top floor put hers on…

From the candy pink of stylist Siouxsie Dickens to the pale pink of this week’s Victorian terrace I think we can safely say that pink is gaining ground as the new neutral of choice. Of course, there will always be those who default to a safe grey (and a dark grey will warm and enhance…

It was a tricky choice this week – between the incredible folly conversion extension which was lovely to look at and the house that might give you some proper tips and ideas for your own spaces. The latter won out. This week. So it’s a three bedroom Victorian terrace in Bath that is on the…

Following on from the interview with Matt Gibberd yesterday, it seemed only right to check in and see if he had any new properties for sale given his comment that, since estate agents were allowed to open up again a few weeks ago, it was “busy, busy, busy”. And indeed there is a slew of…

This is a converted coach-house built around 1800 which is now a two bedroom two floor property on the market for £700,000 with The Modern House.

Proper lottery money this week as we get to have a look around this house which, apparently, belongs to the illusionist Derren Brown. It’s a 19th century former print house that has been converted into a three bedroom property spread over five floors to include a cinema, artist’s studio and two south-facing terraces. It’s on…

Deep diving into a properly colour saturated space this week and hopefully giving you a chance to see how this all enveloping colour soaking might work in your own homes. This is a two bedroom flat in Tottenham, north London, that is on the market with Brickworks for £500,000. It’s worth having a really good…

Now look at this. I love it when you can really see how an architect has taken notice of the surroundings. We have a new build not far from us which is on a hill and the houses above have gone from looking at a lovely view down the hill to a grey roof and…
