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…

Now this is a treat; the Carmarthenshire home of the founders of gorgeous lifestyle brand Toast, is now on the market with The Modern House for £650,000 and I could. I really could.

As regular readers will know I, and many of you, am slightly obsessed with The Modern House, a UK estate agency that has reinvented the genre, not just by apparently agreeing to sell only beautiful houses, but by turning itself into a sort of magazine providing endless inspiration and aspiration to those of us who…

A beautiful house in Cornwall that I am mostly going to let you wander round on your own this week. If you saw my post yesterday you will have seen that I have been working flat out with Rukmini Patel to launch a campaign to push for more diversity in interiors and I need a…

A lovely example of small space living for you this week – after last week’s eclectic extravaganza. 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. Let’s go in through the round window first shall we (anyone around…

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…

I do love it on Grand Designs when people find odd little plots of land and turn them into brilliant and imaginative houses and this week I have found one such property.
