London design inspiration

With Olympic fever abound, here's a roundup of modern design coming out of London. I'm inspired by the superb detail, yet overall simplistic and clean beauty that lets architectural elements speak for themselves.

  1. I could live in any one of these homes! All the rooms are beautiful - I really like the kitchen with the large artwork and floor-to-ceiling glass doors and the bedroom with the three arched windows and great architectural detail.

  2. I'm obsessed with the home rental image...gorgeous architecture and such a serene space. Happy weekend ~

  3. Loving this London theme focused on design cause (secret)...I'm not a fan of the sporting events at all - don't watch a thing...I know, not cool right? But I do love design and I love how I always find new cool designers on your blog. Um, hello Ben Pentreath Ltd....going there now.

    I know, that home rental with the amazing windows is just breath-taking. Thanks for reading!

    Thanks Nicole- it's great to know that the designers I'm coming across resonate. I love finding new (to me) talent, so glad that it inspires you too!

  6. I love these spaces! So much!! ALL of them!!! The Cherner stools are a favorite, and on my wish list for furniture I would love to own... Wish list meaning, my, 'a girl can dream' list ;-)


I'd love to hear from you. Thanks for making my day!
