This stunner of a home is nestled in Westbourne Grove (and is in the heart of London’s Notting Hill). It’s actually on Artesian Road, which is a highly desirable and quiet residential street perfectly placed just behind Westbourne, which is one of the most fashionable streets in all of London, chock full of designer fashion boutiques, luxury brand flagship stores, shoe and bag designers, maternity, baby and children’s wear specialists and bespoke jewellers. And did I mention the home is just two minutes from the famous Portobello Road? (Remember that perfect Sunday market hubby and I went to on Portobello?) In case you were wondering, I’m sold. And if you’ve ever been to London, you’ll know that Notting Hill is one of the most charming and perfect areas in all of London – think homes in every color of the rainbow and the most charming stores and cafés you have ever laid eyes on. If you haven’t been to London, watch Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts in the film, Notting Hill, and try not to want to run away to London and open up a little bookshop in the Notting Hill area.
Aside from a stellar location, the five-story family home is full of charm and comfort, and just the right touch of modernity and crisp design. And by the way, did you see that rooftop garden? Amazing.
In case you’re in the market for a beautiful modern home in the heart of Notting Hill, look no further (this one’s for sale!)

Though temperatures continue to stay below freezing in most of the North this Winter, I love the idea of soaking up a little sunshine from a cozy indoor space. And this cozy little walled-in patio looks like the perfect (and warm) hideaway. Note to self: once we move up North, find a space with a Winter porch, enclosed patio, or sun room.
Actor Patrick Depsey (otherwise known as McDreamy) and his wife, Jillian, adapted one of Frank Gehry’s earliest houses into a rustic and light-filled family family home, and I’m in love. Though I love modern elements in design, I’m ever a sucker for farm tables, exposed wood beams, Moroccan rugs, and a classic airstream. The couple also filled the 5-acre property to the brim with three kids, three dogs, and an “ever-growing menagerie of chickens, miniature donkeys, rabbits, goats, pigs, and one rescued African tortoise.” The lush backyard is equipped with a broad, flat lawn for soccer games, planting beds for vegetables and flowers, an alfresco kitchen with a pizza oven, a breezy dining area topped by a canopy of woven wicker, and coops, hutches, and other enclosures for the Dempseys’ growing farm.
That kitchen is everything … seriously swooning over the floating butcher’s block, concrete sink and countertops, silver range and hood, and that awesome over-sized chalkboard.
Winter offers a great opportunity to change up the look of your home, especially looks that you would otherwise be afraid to try in your interior design. And now that the holiday season is behind us, it’s time to focus on a few new Winter design trends. My suggestion: try it for a season, and if you love it, let the trend stick around for Spring! The best way to decorate your home for Winter is by adding a few warmer elements to your home design. A few wintery touches for your house or apartment:
Pick up those fur, sheepskin, and faux fur throws and pillows you’ve been eying in all of those Holiday catalogs. Winter is the perfect excuse to try out a bold trend like a fur blanket; plus, you’ll be surprised how quickly you fall in love with the plush pieces.
Candles always add a warm touch to your home, try bunching them together on a tray on top of your coffee table or mantel, and maybe this season, instead of sticking to your favorite jars of candles, buy a few white pillar candles in different heights – they look better after every use – the more the wax drips, the cooler they look.
Decorate with Winter flowers. Try making arrangements out of ranunculus, anemones, paperwhites, camellias, juniper, hypericum berries, magnolia leaves, even persimmons.
Buy accent pieces in gold and brass. Pick up gold jars, brass candlesticks, a heavy set of gold-dipped bookends – all of these will add that cool Winter element to your space.
Feast your eyes on the most luxe cottage designed by Million Dollar Decorator, Jeffrey Alan Marks. The rustic-inspired home is filled with mis-matched pieces from every era and town, and that backyard fire pit – it’s the ultimate. The home also looks right out of an Old Hollywood movie, which I love.
After sharing so many of the amazing clothes, shoes and accessories Target has been churning out this season, I thought it was about time I revealed my ever-expanding Target home wishlist. My Target shopping cart is currently bursting at the seams, full of home decor I’ve convinced myself I cannot live without. It doesn’t hurt that all of these things would make fabulous gifts during the holidays for the Target lovers. And really, would you want to live without that gold bar cart?
Threshold Plaid Throw: I’m all for any excuse to buy a new throw … I think I’m up to about eight blankets currently in our living room, so this super soft plaid throw would surely make a great addition.
Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machine Bundle: My hubby has had his eye on one of these fancy machines for a while now, and truth be told, I am a coffee lover, so this may just have to be a holiday splurge.
