A transparent addition brings space, light and that wow factor to an old and dark British kitchen

Houzz Editorial Staff
 
historic home’s quirks, nooks and crannies can lose their charm when it comes to the kitchen. As the homeowners of this 1845 London home discovered, a 19th-century kitchen is no treat to cook in, no matter how cute it looks. Tired of cramming into their 40-square-foot cooking space, the family hired designer Andrew Dunning to bring in more room, functionality and sparkle. His solution: a stunning glass addition that floods the space with light.

Who knew architectural appreciation extended to parking facilities? What might surprise you more is that a list compiled by Britain’s FX Magazine and Stress Free Airport Parking has named a Vancouver parkade as among the 10 “coolest” in the world.

  • Ballet Valet Parking Garage, Miami
  • Eureka Tower Car Park, Melbourne...

I am the kind of person who can eat the same thing for lunch every day, but I can't seem to live with the same decor for more than a couple years. I am constantly making slight adjustments, getting tired of things, moving stuff around. My house is like a painting that is never quite perfect. 

But there are some things I will never tire of. I don't necessarily have them all in my home, but they are the things I always seem to land on when looking for inspiration. Some of them are trendy, some of them are classic, but they all speak to me. Loud and clear. 

What are the decorating trends that will always have a place in the look book of your heart?
