CAN I LIVE HERE / A VICTORIAN TOWNHOUSE IN LONDON
man oh man — this one is an absolute gem.
say hello to this vibrant setting: home to london based stylist, maude smith, and a flawless representation of my dream cottage. there’s so much goodness going on here! persian rugs, paper birds flying from a bedroom ceiling, strong wooden furniture, worn in floral armchairs, and wacky kitchen cabinets covered in seashells and wine corks — it’s all tucked inside this cozy townhouse.
the bathroom’s hand painted tile is definitely my favorite part of the house. seriously, i found myself googling where to buy bug tiles because they’re incredible. i love that each tile is a little different and imperfect, and that maude chose to pair them with vintage fixtures in mixed metals.
i’m also obsessed with the rich colors — burgundy, gold, royal and eggshell blue — paired with flashes of hand drawn wallpaper and murals. what a cool backdrop for displaying this colorful collection.
smith’s kitchen is an amazing mishmash of corks, seashells, broken china, dried flowers and empty wine bottles. a diy that totally works and (let’s be honest) offers a strong argument for installing seashell cabinets. who knew!
just another sweet corner in the sweetest house. wasn’t this home the cutest? i would probably end my days here reading a book in this floral armchair. i love spaces that use every inch to display memories found along the way, and maude smith’s home does not disappoint. glad i stumbled upon this treasure!
