This reinvented Victorian Terrace gives me wowsers in my trousers.  I adore the steel casement bi-fold doors that look like they came straight from an old factory, the idyllic walled garden, and the poured concrete kitchen island with its custom XXL chopping board. (I’m literally describing every element in this image and I couldn’t be more OK with that.) See more of this house – and steel casement windows as entire walls – here.

Get you a bath that can do both. I love how they’ve used the larger rectangle tile to create a ‘wet wall’ for the shower (and a ledge for storage), with the herringbone marble to give the look a little more texture and interest.

At this point am I just sharing pictures of tiles I like? Yes, Yes that’s exactly what’s happening here.

Love this kitchen (it’s a deVol Sebastian Cox kitchen) belonging to the owner of slow living homeware store Ingredients LDN. Love the custom island on castors, so it can be rolled out of the way as needed. (Also – and this is important – the castors themselves are aesthetically pleasing. Is that brass?). Love the shaker peg board wrapped right around the wall. Love the fact that the kitchen island has storage on both sides. Love the porcelain light (and you can’t see it here, but it’s hung from a vintage pulley). Love the band sawn beech cabinet front panels, with circular holes instead of pull handles. Spotted at Remodelista – go here to see more of this kitchen and home.

My kinda gal. Simple styling, ceramics on show, double-the-bowl-double-the-joy sink, and a beautiful vintage industrial-looking faucet Would you gag if I told you this faucet is actually from IKEA. Gag away.
(Discovered via Remodelista – see the rest of this home here.)

Very quintessentially 2019. So good!

(P.S: This new red pinstripe duvet cover is french stonewashed linen and I need it in my life without delay.)

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, that branch is an OSH hazard.
And I’m thinking that too, my friend. But we’re here to talk about how a cloud grey paint delivers a very quiet, grounding, and sophisticated bedroom sanctuary, especially layered with a palette of linens (plus velvet for a touch of luxe).
