I’ve said it before, but one of the best parts of my day job at Houzz is getting to see and write about some of the most incredible homes tucked away all over the country. From rambling country cottages to tiny town houses – I get house envy on a daily basis. But I’ve recently ramped up my house hunting, because as well as sourcing homes for Houzz, I now also write a monthly house tour for the Metro newspaper. So finding those dream homes is an around-the-clock job!
Last month I wrote about the Yorkshire home of interior designer Linda Barker and I wanted to share some photos of it with you. She has beautifully extended the original cottage (which dates back to 1890) and decorated it throughout with soft greys and whites and plenty of vintage pieces. The attic bathroom is show-stoppingly lovely (that view!) and the pretty little guest room with a window under the eaves is adorable.
Chris Snook, our superstar Houzz photographer, hotfooted it up to Yorkshire to take these beautiful photos and I spoke to Linda to get the story behind the makeover. You can read the full article here on Houzz and have a browse through a selection of photos below (if you want to see even more there are plenty more on Houzz). Hope you enjoy!
