Flat Living












I am a huge fan of having a yard, but if we had the money to own a flat like this then I would be more than happy to call this place home. Besides I am sure the kiddos would love to play on the swings on this roof top terrace. Of course this isn't any old loft, this is a 2 story penthouse designed by the owner/designer. I really wish the listing said who the designer was. The wall of shelves and that kitchen oh my.

You always find the best home tours. I like that skinny wood table with the two upholstered settees.

I agree with you on dreaming of living in a flat.

For me, about 60% of me wants to live a in a great big old renovated farm house with lots of land. 40% wants to live in a big, exciting city in a loft or studio with a big commercial lift.

I'm so torn. I want both.

What a beautiful home! I like yards too, but sometimes those urban apartments are just so tempting.

Also, your new blog design looks lovely!

These are great. I'm a huge fan of a yard too...but I see photos like these and lofts and my mind could easily be swayed :)

I wish I was in the market for a house down there, well actually i wish I had the 1 mil to buy the house. Either way, its very beautiful

Great find!!! Any place with porch swings is a place for me! And those shelves in the kitchen are awesome.

wow...it's stunning!

Sarah said...

Agreed...who needs a yard if you could have a back "porch" like this!
I need to get back on my minimalism kick. I was doing good with the getting rid of 5-10 things a day, but then I got cold feet. I'm ready to resume my desperate NEED to get rid of about 50% of the stuff I own!

"When can I move in?"
