When many people think of modern housing, their minds often go to brand new buildings that have only just been constructed. On the contrary, however, some of our favourite contemporary homes have actually already been standing for generations and have simply been recently refurbished. We’re huge fans of any design and decor scheme that makes an otherwise outdated building into something modern but comfortable. That’s exactly the story with House Four!

Do you come from a family of avid learners and scholars who are always looking for creative spaces to learn new things and grow their imaginations? Going out of your way to set yourself up somewhere new while you’re studying can be fun and productive, but sometimes you just need to hunker down at home and really get things done. Imagine, then, how awesome it must be to own a home that’s actually designed for things like studying, creation, and great productivity? The Study House is a perfect example of what we mean!
Is your idea of the perfect cozy apartment one that emphasizes natural materials and generally possesses the calming decor an aesthetic of a relaxing spa? We’re very much interested in that type of home design as well, so we’re fairly certain you’ll love the look of London Apartment just as much as we do!

We adore looking at photos of beautifully built houses that are brand new and still shiny, but sometimes it’s nice to see older structures get a facelift instead!

Sometimes the best way to update an old home is to choose an area of the house that needs refreshing, leaving the rest of it to stand in all its historical splendor. Many professional designers and architects choose to do this on older streets that have strong consistency of style all throughout the neighbourhood, like countless historical lanes and roads throughout England do. This gives the family a fresh start inside the home, and maybe outside a little bit in the form of an addition, but still keeps the valuable historical aesthetic on the outside in tact.

Have you always dreamed, since you were just a little kid, of living in a tree house like Robinson Crusoe? We have too! We spent countless days wishing we had a massive tree house in our backyard so we could run around high up in the trees, enjoying the view from above and breathing in the fresh air.

England is often commended for its unique city homes, proudly showing off old historical buildings crammed together with character in the streets of London and boasting old fashioned exteriors that contrast well with the modern makeovers the apartment has received inside.

Have you ever noticed that England has some of the very best names for their homes? Rather than having a street number, some older or historical homes have titles that describe the home, the area, or what the style of the building was when it was first built. This is a long lasting tradition all over the country and Pear Tree House, a private home in London, England, is no exception.

“Micro living” might be all the rage in some cities right now, but that doesn’t mean anyone’s prepared to live in a tiny space if they don’t have the kind of furniture, style, and organizational skill that goes with making a very small apartment into a functioning home. In big cities like London, England, however, families are often left with no choice if they want to live right in the thick of the culture and social experience that city life has to offer! One architectural and design company understood this struggle all too well, so they redesigned a small private residence, fondly named Nevern Square Apartment, for a young family in need of a fresh start.
