After a busy weekend of outdoor cleaning, gardening, and putting our exterior living spaces back together, I figured the best way to kick off the week here on the blog was with an easy and inspiring home tour! Today I’m taking you to the south coast of England to the Isle of Wight to tour a stunning, eclectic, and historic Victorian home designed by the talented Mark Smith of Smith Creative. Click through for a quick and quirky English home tour…
I like the simple millwork throughout the main level of this home, with the beautiful dentil moulding, cased doorways & windows, and paneled doors.
The furnishings, decor, textiles, and art definitely give this historic Victorian home a more modern feel, along with the moody paint colors.
I loved the art and styling in the entryway- that gallery wall is fabulous, along with the striped stair runner and marble console.
I enjoyed perusing the bedroom styling and appreciate the integration of antiques paired alongside newer, modern pieces for a lovely juxtaposition.
The bathroom may be one of my favorite rooms in this home, with its glossy gray subway tile, vintage mirror, and harlequin floors. It certainly has a very European feel.
I also loved seeing a proper mudroom fit for the English countryside…. the perfect place to kick off your boots, hang your hat, and store your adventure & gardening goods. The charming outdoor dining space was also a fun surprise!
Isn’t this house incredible? You can take the full tour here! Did you enjoy this one? Two home tours in one month… I told you I’ve been saving some good ones for days like today! It has been SO busy over here- between doctor appointments, work, Emmett’s recovery, and getting things in order for the summer season ahead, I’m looking forward to a slower June. With that said, I did get everything photographed outside over the weekend, so next week I’m going to have five(!) outdoor living tours for you. I’m breaking them each into individual shorter blog posts, rather than one giant tour. Expect a blog post everyday next week, beginning on Monday… it’s going to be a week long celebration of outdoor living, all things exterior, with perfect timing for Memorial Day weekend. I’m excited! Have a good week, friends.
