a little english spot of heaven..

marianne over at haven and home posted about a great website called beach studios. great house tours and even better they are all for rent or sale in one way or another. there were several that i have seen before and others i hadn't but plenty that i loved!! like this one...


a home for rent in east sussex. it's called scotts float and i love the way it marries perfectly english country with modern. so fresh and simple and inviting. i want to go to there..who's with me?



see what i mean? english country meets modern..




a little bit of shaker style simplicity too...love it. perfect example of a rental property that decorates properly. warm and inviting without too much of the owner's personality..







how about this dreamy bedroom? happy, clean whites, a little bit of floral, some fuzzy on the floor and it appears to face a window...lovely.

another grand example of old and new...





for the wee ones...not sure about the mustard walls...but whatever..i can look past it. its a cozy little attic space. i spot a kartell componibili tower..

i love this spot. i could sleep here...

or here...

when spring rolls in i always crave an english getaway..country style.

Ummm I'm obsessed. Saving these photos and the link pronto. I think you just found my dream house and I'm being totally serious. If only it were for sale...and I wasn't broke! XO

I want that pink couch. I wonder what the BF would do if I came home with that, hmmm I might have to test it.

The Zhush said...

The glass wall in the bathroom, the front runner on the stairs...its all too good. Renting would almost be a tease.

Rachel said...

Love it!
You can stay in the house - I think I'm just going to camp out in the garden, if that's okay. It's gorgeous.

That whole clawfoot tub and shower situation is what I dream of...
