From a dining room that does double duty as an interior design office to a living full of custom octopus chandeliers, this week's tours were full of personal touches and custom solutions. Lose yourself in a cozy country cottage on the East coast, or wander through a 100-year-old townhome in Scotland; wherever you go, you'll find evidence of our homeowners' ingenuity and style.
Every house tells a story. In the case of Deans court, the 'ancestral home' in Dorset, England that we visited this week, that story dates back to the 11th century. The homes featured in our Stateside tours are mere babes by comparison, but their owners have worked in antiques and mementos from their own lives to give their homes a rich sense of history. Come on in, take a look around, and get inspired.
