Whenever I find myself flicking through the glossy pages of Livingetc I always dreamed of visiting the beautiful homes featured… and now, for the second time this year my dreams have come true!

Livingetc House Tours is the exclusive opportunity to visit the incredible houses featured in the magazine. How amazing is that?! Of course, I took lots of snaps so I could capture the day and share it with you all.

House A – The home of Dave Bennett and his husband Gareth Orr. This Grade II Listed property features artist flare and creativity. It was clear walking around that the owners have meticulously curated their home collections over the years and this is abundantly evident via their large collection of artwork displayed throughout their home and beautiful little trinkets. I wanted them all! To explore this beautiful home in more detail, head to LivingEtc.

House B– This one was actually my favourite!!  The family villa designed by Simpson and Voyle and Mitzman Architects. It oozed the Wow factor from the moment I stepped through the door, with a striking pink and orange striped runner. The home echoed this and it is filled with playful touches, colour splashes and striking patterns. I didn’t know where to look next and I didn’t want to leave.

House C– The family home of Oriona Robb, this dark and eclectic 19th Century Home is moody and mysterious. An elegant period property with modern finishes such as the glass kitchen extension, this home is a clever mix of traditional and contemporary design.

House D– Colourful, considered and a very clever architectural renovation that gave me serious house envy. Designed by Irenie and Adam Cossey this beautiful home is filled with colour blocks, sentimental momentoes and designer details.

House E– Victorian terrace home of Petite Friture UK director, Aude Debard and she was actually on hand to answer any questions on the day about the property and the fabulous items within it. The house is filled with unexpected surprises, antique lighting and plenty of colour inspiration throughout the home.

House F– We actually weren’t allowed to take any photos of this property so I managed to steal some from livingetc so you can have a sneaky peek around the property too. This house was built in 2012, the contemporary home is full of unexpected twists and grandeur that you wouldn’t necessarily expect of a new build property. Designed by one of my favourites, interior designer and architect Daniel Hopwood the home comprises of three floors and with a paired back aesthetic, allowing the statement pieces such as the giant mural in the dining room to really do the talking. Discover more, of this beautiful home in this Livingetc article. If you are also a fan of Daniel Hopwood you will see it has his signature stamp all over it.
