This beautiful home is in North London, in Crouch End, and just up the road from me!  It will be my task the week-end to find exactly where it is.

I am head over heals in love with that kitchen - everything about it is perfect!  I always thought I was a more modern kind of girl... but gosh, I stand corrected.  The whitewashed floorboards, the old butchers block, the worn pale green-blue doors.... not to mention those big bright windows!  The only question I have is:  When can I move in please?

The decor is simply stylish and very elegantly done.  Subtle tones, and textures and lots of bright natural light.

The bathroom is gorgeous - however, was this my bathroom in my beautiful house, I perhaps would've opted for some slightly more traditional features.  Don't get me wrong, I am the biggest concrete fan you might find this side of the Thames!  (And I am told this hammam-style bathroom has actually been created using tadelek, a traditional Moroccan plastering technique.  And a very similar finish can be achieved by using polished concrete)
But perhaps a victorian bath could've still worked wonders in this very beautiful space.  I do love the oversized vanity and sunken basin.
