The minute I found this lovely house on the Internet, I had to post it. I really do love Edwardian properties..similar to Victorian houses but the features seem simpler and less 'heavy', also I love large hallways with the wider staircase, which Edwardian homes seem to have.
The main living area doesn't really seem to follow any style but maybe that is what I like about it so much. That and the wonderful mirrored alcoves, they have to be my favourite part of the. I love the fact that they are to the floor, as many alcoves include storage of some kind so the mirrors only go half way. Also I love how there is a tint to the mirrors. Just beautiful.

I have to say I am unsure about the mirror above. The sizing of it and placing it opposite the lovely original window is perfect, but the style seems abit to harsh for the interior. However the Eames rocker is lovely paired with the floating shelf.

Oh how I love this kitchen! The stainless steel worktops are a wonderful contrast to the original flooring and lovely wooden Tam Tam stools really give it a more personal edge. The lighting is quirky but understated, all round I think this is a simple elegant kitchen that obviously doesn't take the main focus of the house.

The bedroom is simplistic also, which seems to be a theme of the house. With some kind of circular accessory or piece of furniture, whether that be a rug or the table in the kitchen. Also a darker item seems to give a focal point to each room.

The bathroom does seem limited for space, however the wall hung basin and toilet work well in keeping the floor clear. I also love the fact there are built-in mirrors opposite each other, which will definitely give a sense of infinity when you look into them. However for me personally the bathroom does lack colour, it would be lovely to see abit of lime in there!

This workshop has to be my favourite part of the entire house, the fact that it hardly looks like a workshop and has a mezzanine floor and a beautiful fireplace amazes me.

To be honest..this is a home I wouldn't normally go for, however the over all effect seems to leave you calm and relaxed. Its got personality but not overly so. You can just tell a lot of thought and design has gone into this home - Which is the main thing that I love.
