The magazine LivingEtc runs a selection of House Tours each year, open to the public featuring incredible homes that are often photographed for the magazine. Money raised from the tour this year went to the charity Crisis.
I was lucky enough to be invited onto the tour as a guest of ao.com, and had the chance to visit some of the most amazing homes in North West London and meet up with some lovely bloggers in the process.
Now, as you can imagine I took a lot of photographs, and I’ve selected some of my favourite from each home to show you in this post. That was quite tricky but I hope you like the selection and can take some inspiration from the homes I saw. There were incredible.
House 3 – the first house we saw but 3rd on the Tour. A huge Victorian home crammed with a lifetime of collectable and dramatic interiors.
House 4 – a surprisingly spacious and newly renovated, contemporary home decorated in a palette of moody greys.
House 5 – eclectic, boho and lived in. This home was quirky and innovative filled with personality and life.
House 7 – a contemporary, modern home from the outside with a retro, mid-century and concrete interior. Quite the contrast.
As you can tell from the images, each house was different and unique, and all of them inspired me in their own way.
The tour was sponsored by ao.com (formerly Appliances Online) who showcased some luxury appliances and technology along the way. It was great to see the tour buzzing with excitement as we drifted from house to house, and interesting to see people’s reactions to each home. They were as different as the homes themselves.
If you want to see a different take on the tour through someone else’s eyes, do check out Carole Poirot’s post on the ao.com blog here. I found it quite fascinating to see the details she focussed on, and can’t wait to see what the other bloggers have written too. I’ll pop back and add some links once I’ve seen their posts.
