An Old House with a Fresh New Look

When I saw this house, which is listed on the JJ Locations website as a place production companies can rent to film in, I was surprised to learn that it's in Greater London. It may be an old, four-story Georgian home, but it has a fresh and light feeling to it.







The Swedish Gustavian furniture gives it a romantic look, despite all of the stark white, don't you think? This is beautiful to me, so I'm linking up to Melissa's Beautiful Life party.

I'm also joining Hooked on Fridays, the blog party that celebrates the things that make us happy. This house is what I'm hooked on today. Visit Hooked on Houses to see what everyone else is sharing!

  4. You could have told us this was right on the beach. I love the beat up kitchen sink area. No fears cooking there.

  14. I would never have thought it was in London, either. I have to think it would be a bit chilly and dismal in February...
    I need to have a nosey around that locations website, sounds like great fun!

  19. I would have guessed this home is in Sweden or Belgium, not England!!

    Very pretty house :-) The architectural details are great, and love the chandeliers. Also love those great windows looking out to what I'm guessing is the backyard.

  20. Swoon...Whites work so well with terracotta or old wooden floors - instant airiness. I also loved how they've used inexpensive IKEA cushions in the second photo as well as a £20 clock from one of our budget catalogue stores here in the UK.

  33. Hi Julia, I'm so glad that I found your blog. I'm hooked on houses also and beach houses are one of my favorites. This beach house is just beautiful! Love it! I loved your previous post on Nights In Rodanthe. I also did a post on the movie after going to Rodanthe last summer.

    I think that house could be in a bad way it was very close to the ocean so it's very possible. A beautiful place though, I hate to see it torn down!!!
    Bless you, Shirl
