House Tour – London Villa……….

Charmingly understated with lovely bones, another gorgeous location from Shootfactory.

It would be a sin to cover those windows with anything and those wide floorboards were never meant to be seen, but who cares they are just beautiful.

And those bookcases! How perfectly do they fit that space?

Such admirable restraint to leave the paintwork in all it’s rubbed-down glory.

And it’s so obviously a ‘cooks’ kitchen but I’m not sure I could leave those worktops alone.

Or the bathroom window without some curtains.

Or the bedroom without a blind.

I’d have to make a few teeny tiny changes…

How about you?

    Really lovely post. I love the rustic design, almost as if nobody had designed it at all.

    My own flat has wood floor and I love it, how it feels on the feet in the morning. Perfect. Just add some rugs for soft touches and a giant sofa to curl up on.

    It’s so light and airy, but I would add some curtains.

    What a place! You can really do lot with these great walls and high ceilings! I guess everyone would do a bit change here and there according to their own taste, I would for sure add some personal touch 🙂

    Carole, this is just stunning. Very much agree with your changes and am also a bit perturbed by the doorway you don’t seem to be able to walk through (4th picture down). Even so, I would quite happily move in tomorrow! x
