Me too! What a lovely house.

OOhh.. very swanky.. but I still prefer my own little pad.. can't swing a cat but has all I need.

That is lovely. She has gone a bit mental with the tomatoes and the avocados, though.

LynetteScavo Fri 05-Jul-13 20:50:11

Really? Loads of really small things about that house annoy me.

I showed DH and he said, ' oh i see ulrika lives on COX lane. Theres a surprise'

Lolz!

nope, sorry, nothing there in the spaces grabs me at all and the furniture clearly belongs to the stylist
nice plot
pull down and start again

Karbea Fri 05-Jul-13 21:09:21

What does she do with all of those tomatoes?!?!?

Talkinpeace Fri 05-Jul-13 21:12:51

the stylist brings them and the stylist takes them away

I grew up in a magazine house
I'd have quite like some of the toys the stylists brought

Herhonesty Fri 05-Jul-13 21:14:26

Nope not for me

Branleuse Fri 05-Jul-13 21:16:56

Lovely house.

Pale housewife, maybe your dh should move there as he sounds like a bit of a cock

MarshaBrady Fri 05-Jul-13 21:17:25

Some odd shapes, too compartment-y for me.

Parisbanana Fri 05-Jul-13 21:18:11

Me neither. Most of it not to my taste at all.

Zynnia Fri 05-Jul-13 21:20:05

wow, it's lovely, but too 'styled' for a pleb like me. :-p I'd make Naomi cleaver wince. I'd want to put a picture over the fire (or that square hole!) I do really like it though! the bathroom is lovely. Why is she selling?

"Pull down and start again" - srsly?

Lovely, staircase and ensuite are particularly gorgeous but if I actually was in the market or a 3mil home then something about pictures 7 and 8 would be enough to put me off. Something a bit off/missing.

I'm not convinced that the furniture has been brought in (maybe the orchids on the worktop though...). I've got a feeling that she commissioned the house herself which isn't something that people who have no interest in design and interiors tend to do - or when they do, it doesn't end up looking like that. I think it's pretty good, the spaces seem to work well and there's some great details - I really love the corner fireplace - plus it's nicely finished without being ostentatious. I'd live there if it wasn't in Henley.

Branleuse, I was thinking that. I hate reading criticism of UJ, SO'C or next, probably KW as they have all been responsible for the children of their failed relationships unlike millions of dads all over the world who start again without a backward glance, and even if they do glance backwards they're not judged.. So tell mrpalehusband to get over himself.

Zynnia Fri 05-Jul-13 21:22:50

{this is property/diy not aibu} okay. blush

eurozammo Fri 05-Jul-13 21:23:00

I absolutely love it. I would deffo buy it if I had the money.

I love it too.

Gorgeous stairs.

Talkinpeace Fri 05-Jul-13 21:29:13

I do not care whose house it is : it does not work as a flexible space
and I know the area : much better use could be made of that square footage.

but then my next house will either be a new build or a rebuild of catastrophic damage or a demolish rebuild.
I don't like most other peoples taste
but in past house sales they seem to like mine

Strange she's selling as she only moved in a couple of years ago.

bico Fri 05-Jul-13 21:32:38

She didn't commission the house, she remodelled and extended an existing house.

Maisieskates Fri 05-Jul-13 21:33:07

We've got the (Ikea) lampshade she has in the bedroom. (That's the only similarity with our place!)

I love it.
