Creative Regency style family townhouse in London

Creative Regency style family townhouse in London

Come in and dream! Yes. Dream! This beautiful townhouse in London is such a great mix of styles and interesting ideas. Plus a very cool colour scheme throughout the property.

Starting in the basement with a pink kitchen, moving upwards into green, and turning blue like the sky when stepping into the children’s rooms.

The decoration is both design and traditional, and combines the traditional Regency style of its time with a design extension to the garden, featuring a living area and an open kitchen. The house was restored and refurbished by its architect-owner for his family.

Come and have a look inside this creative Regency style family townhouse in London:

I enjoy seeing that the old historical details have been preserved and the combination with modern design, when done right, enhances the end result. Old and new blend together, we can find modern steel features, exposed brick walls, wooden floors, and a kitchen out of a decor magazine.

Holly Grove is the most distinctive part of the conservation area, characterised by a rigorous building line of paired and terraced villas in which strong and simple brick details are used to create a steady rhythm of vertical elements.”

The house has five bedrooms and is situated in Holly Grove. A residential street in Peckham, buzzling with cafes, boutiques and restaurants. Plus it is a lovely green and family friendly area as well.

Ever dreamed about a pink kitchen? You might after this one! What an impressive open-plan lower-ground floor kitchen and living space which opens fully to the garden through glazed doors.

Loving the exposed bricks and curved archway.

The house is very bright, somehow playful, and definitely very welcoming. I would absolutely love to have a cup of tea in that kitchen…

The coolest art prints for the children’s room!

best art prints Kids Room

A fantastic piece of art can make a child’s bedroom or a playroom come alive immediately. And it is one of the most cost-effective and quickest changes you can make as well.

Spring often inspires us to bring some fresh new items inside. And since we spend so much time in our four walls right now, I thought this would be a nice article for you this week. So why not opting for a little interior project?

Let’s discover the coolest art prints for the children’s room:

We want to move into this amazing playroom!

playroom ideas

We are heading all the way down to Australia for some delightful children’s rooms today. Bright, fresh, and perfectly designed for little people to hang out, be creative, and to enjoy sweet dreams.

You will discover one spectacular playroom that is so inviting and fun – I want to move in.

By the way, are you ready for Easter or has it vanished from your ‘list’ with everything else going on? We will definitely do an Easter Egg Hunt in our little garden and the kids are already so excited. And after that we will enjoy a brunch. Normally we do invite friends over but this year we have to skip that tradition. Positive note: More food for us. Ha!

But lets come back to this week’s interior gem and all the amazing playroom ideas to take away from here:

And? Amazing right?

And do you remember the elephant chairs and the fun wallpaper?

I think it is fair to assume that a little boy is sleeping in this pretty nursery. And yes, it is a very ‘clear gender’ attribution however with the size of the room, lovely light, and white furniture I am still enjoying it very much!

Blush Peach and Savannah Sunset coloured family home

Blushing Peach and Savannah Sunset coloured family home

Oh lord. The place I am showing you today had me at first sight. It is a rather small space but the use of space and colour palette make it so stunning. I am truly in love and want to redecorate right away.

This unique attic has a special atmosphere, some Art Nouveau soul, and a whole lot of character.

The colour palette is based on a landscape photograph from Oman by the photographer Chiara Zonca. The pale pine floor became the sand, the pink shifts in the sunset dunes became walls and moldings, dark shadows in rock formations became the bedroom’s dark red and black details. And the ceilings were painted in pigeon blue.

But the best part is how the colours play out during the day. Starting the days in warm golden light and getting more cosy during the darker hours of the evening.

In short: It is amazing and I will let the pictures speak for themselves:

The kids room is the cutest. Sitting right under the roof with every inch carefully used and means the little one literally falls asleep under stars here. And there is plenty of space for playing, sleeping, storing and growing.

Usually I select the interiors I show here based on their children’s rooms. Which was the case here too, however the star is the kitchen for me. I just love it. I love how they did the lighting, the black that gives it more the impression of being a piece of furniture than a kitchen. And that window with the deepest window sill I have ever seen. So pretty!

Altogether the combination of the wall colour, the mustard sofa, and black cabinets is so interesting. What do you think?

The 10 Best Colouring Pages for Kids for Long Days at home

The 10 Best Colouring Pages for Kids for Long Days at home
‘Mum, can you print a colouring sheet for me? Please!’.

I am pretty sure you know that question very well. And you also know the next step – searching, landing on tons of questionable websites, and mostly ending in images that are either too small and require too many steps to download.

I know! It is frustrating and so annoying. Especially because one might think that it is a very easy mission to print out a colouring sheet.

And I am also pretty sure that colouring is in extra high demand these days. For a little break from homework, or when you need some quiet time to finish something for work.

Therefore I went out to find some very nice colouring pages for kids. For different ages. And you can either print them from here directly or go to the website and do it from there. No spam, no strange stuff!

Let’s have a look at the 10 Best Colouring Pages for Kids for Long Days at home:

 

Monster-High-Coloring-Pages-Printable

Monsters to colour in and to personalise. Give them expresssions, eyes, outfits, and whatever your creativity comes up with.

You can download and print it from here or visit the website.
