An English Home With a Beautiful Blue Kitchen

England House Tour Tiffany Grant-Riley

Along with her husband and two young kids, Tiffany Grant-Riley has been slowly renovating an Edwardian-era home in Kent, England. “We have big plans for this house,” she says. “But we’re taking it one day at time and loving the house as it is for now.” Take a look around…

LIVING ROOM
England House Tour Tiffany Grant-Riley

Paint: Dulux. Sofa: vintage, similar. Rug: Habitat, similar. Tray: Ikea. Chair: Ikea (“left by previous owner and my husband won’t let it go!”).

On a home’s history: Stepping into the house for the first time, it just had this warmth about it — as though it had been waiting for us. It was full of character and felt much loved… though the double doors in the living that I fell in love with first.

TV trolley: Normann Copenhagen. Frames and prints: Desenio. Curtains: Ikea. Vase: Lyngby Porcelæn.

On modern living in an old space: When the house was originally built, I think this front room would have been a posh entertaining space. It can get quite drafty, but the fireplace is great. It’s small, but when you close the living room doors it heats the place up quickly. It’s a real treat on a winter’s evening, when it’s cold and dark, to lose yourself watching the fire.

On a tree with soul: I love my plants and named them after soul singers. My rubber tree is Marvin, because he’s strong and tall and gentle, like Marvin Gaye. I adore him.

HALLWAY
England House Tour Tiffany Grant-Riley

On out-with-the-old: No, the pink ‘design’ here is not intentional. This is our year for tackling the hallways, and I’m in the middle of stripping everything off the plaster. The previous owner had a raspberry color on the top part of the walls and glossy white wallpaper on the bottom. I kind of like how it looks right now.

KITCHEN
England House Tour Tiffany Grant-Riley Paint on cabinets: Little Green Paint. Print: Berit Mogensen Lopez.

On finding your light: The kitchen was originally really dark, and I thought, ‘Right, I need to do something that doesn’t involve a massive budget.’ I decided to sand and stain the floors with a pale wash, paint the walls white, and paint all the colors in a nice mid-blue — because I still wanted to embrace the fact that this room can get dark and moody. But that made the place feel much lighter than it is. It was a real labor of love, that room.

On a family tradition: We’re a big cooking family. I came from a single-parent household and cooking was very important to my mum. She did a lot with very little. I’ve picked that up from her. When I cook family meals, I like to use that part of the day as a mediation to dump all pressures from the day. Favorites include sticky salmon and coconut rice and homemade pizza with roasted Mediterranean vegetables.

Vase: &Tradition.

On dance parties: The kitchen is the room everyone gravitates toward. It has such a lovely, warm feeling. It also makes an excellent dance floor, and we go to town a couple times a week. The kids and I, anyway, but not so much Rob. He’s not a dancer. I’ve actually put together a Lockdown Get-Down playlist on the blog if you fancy a taster!

England House Tour Tiffany Grant-Riley Clock: George Nelson for Vitra.

On everyone’s favorite hangout: The cat loves the kitchen, too. There’s a cupboard under the coffee machine and he knows his food is kept there. He stands sentry, staring at it and waiting and waiting until it’s time to be fed. He has a very fancy name, Rafferty Mo, because we got him before we had kids and I wanted to give him the best possible name I could think of for a boy. We mostly call him Mosey.

MASTER BEDROOM
England House Tour Tiffany Grant-Riley

Paint: Valspar. Light fixture: Ikea. Bed frame: John Lewis, similar. Bedding: Bedroom Mood. Wall lamps: Mater. Shelf: Smålands Skinnmanufaktur. Rug: Houseology.

On modern coziness: For our bedroom, I wanted to find a color that felt cocooning, and I love these dark, sandy beige shades. We’re so lucky to have some original features — like the closet and the fireplace — but I did want a slightly more contemporary feel, and something to contrast the beige. So I changed the handles on the closet to more modern ones, and incorporated elements of black to break up the color.

England House Tour Tiffany Grant-Riley Throw: Laura Slater. Curtains: Ikea, Ikea. Bureau: Heal’s.

KIDS’ ROOM
England House Tour Tiffany Grant-Riley

Paint on closet: Dulux. Paint on walls: Dulux. Print: Gretas Schwester.

On sharing: The kids share a bedroom, so we decided we’d do a bunk bed to give them that extra bit of floor space. They like climbing on it and building dens. They really enjoy sharing, and obviously they have their moments but they love each other’s company.

England House Tour Tiffany Grant-Riley

Bunk bed: Oliver furniture. Top bunk sheet: Swedish Linens. Bottom bunk sheet: Newbie, similar. Pennant banner: eBay, similar. Rug: Zara Home, similar. Storage boxes: Ikea.

On “collaborating:” The kids had input when I was putting together the room, but I had to reign them in. If I’d just done exactly what they told me then we would have a black ceiling with stars on it, a hot pink wall, a purple wall and a blue wall. I wanted to find something a bit more gender neutral, so I went with this grey-blue, which is quite soothing. They brought in their own preferences and personalities with their bedding, toys and storage.

SUNROOM
England House Tour Tiffany Grant-Riley

Chair: vintage Llyod Loom. Greenhouse plant box with white frame: Ikea. Plant box with black frame: Made.

On a wonderful feature: Conservatories are more common in the U.K. I struggle with my mental health at times, and I can’t tell you how invaluable a space it has come to be in my life. If I need to escape, decompress, think or wallow, I’ll be in there. In the spring and summer, I start the day with my morning coffee, watching the birds and the plants, and we’ve started eating dinner here in the evenings now. We make the most of it when we can!

Thank you so much, Tiffany!

P.S. Many more home tours, including a 175-square-foot studio and a San Francisco home with a cool backyard.

    The woodwork, trim, doors, crown molding………Beyond Beautiful!

  2. JoLynn says...

    Stove Cove Love ❤️

  3. Whitney says...

    I love this home! I, too, live in a house with old plaster walls, and stripping the raspberry paint here has left me pondering. Is stripping the paint necessary because it was peeling, or is there some other benefit of stripping it? I love the look of plaster and would love to learn more!

  4. Raquel says...

    Lovely home. Looks so warm and comfortable.
    Joanna and team, thank you so much for continuing your blog with such vigor during these times. It may seem frivolous at times but we need reminders of warmth, love, and comfort more than ever. I write this as I drink a cup of Jo! xx

  5. Em says...

    This was so enjoyable! And I so appreciated the mention of mental health in relation to the conservatory. Trying to think of how I might create my own version in my conservatory-less house; it looks like the perfect oasis. Thank you for sharing that detail, Tiffany; it meant something to me at a time when meaning feels hard to find.

  6. Jessica says...

    What a lovely home! Love her choices and that she shared the hallway-in-progress with us!

  7. lark says...

    Love this house! Looks so comfy and welcoming!!!

  8. Anna says...

    A lovely home tour and I especially love the hallway and that mid blue paint colour. (But the rebel in me is just itching to remove iittala stickers, haha. Don’t tell Finns.)

    • Ann-Marie says...

      How dare you suggest removing the stickers! ;)

  9. Trish O says...

    Beautiful home. I also live in an Edwardian era home in IL, USA. But in IL we don’t call it that so much, we think of them as early Frank Lloyd Wright (LOL) or American Four-Square from a similar time. We have taken our time with our old home and it has changed and developed as our family as grown and grown-up. I am appreciating “home” more and more as we have been sheltering in it. I found a picture of women in 1918 in my neighborhood sitting on the porches with their masks on. Sisters of another era, my home providing shelter from pandemic for the family that came before us. Anyway, beautiful home. All the best.

    • Catherine says...

      I love this story! You should frame that picture. :)

  10. Cynthia says...

    Charming home. If you are re-doing an old home, you do have to work on it in stages. I know, because we have an old home.

    • RM says...

      Very good, and reassuring, point.
      We purchased an 1840s farmhouse 9 years ago and are still working on it.
      I love Tiffany’s beautiful fireplaces and crown molding, but also the in-process hallway, and any peeling paint. I love her small, peaceful bedroom. (I suspect that the current expansive master bedroom suite trend will soon fade.). And I appreciate her using IKEA furniture for both it’s economical price point, and also clean lines that highlight her home’s architectural glory.
      I could go on and on, (but I need to go paint my daughter’s bedroom walls, after re-patching the plaster walls.)

  11. Natalie T. says...

    Great tour! Love the idea of a TV trolley, especially for small spaces and putting that in the idea bank for my next place.

  12. So beautiful! Also, she is Tiffany is gorgeous with an amazing sense of style! Can we know where her wide leg trousers are from?

    • MG says...

      Yes!!! Also where is Tiffany’s beautiful black and white dress from in the final photo? Thank you for sharing her beautiful home. Especially loved that lovely blue and white kitchen and the kids’ room.

  13. I adore the character and quaintness of this home! I am always so drawn to “English” styled homes, perhaps more of a Scandinavian feel. Beautiful home tour, thank you for the inspiration!

  14. Kate says...

    Wonderful, original, warm. Great house and Tiffany is lovely.

  15. Nikki says...

    Everything is just stunning & really inspiring!

  16. H says...

    Loved this home tour!

    Side note – about halfway through all the text (including comments) turned to italics for me. I tried refreshing the page but nothing changed. Has anyone else had this issue?

    • Alice says...

      Yes! I’m having the same problem. I thought it was my eyes at first, but definitely italics!

    • Bee says...

      Yes, me too – so weird!

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      sorry about that, it was a mistake in the code. it’s fixed!

    • H says...

      Thanks Jo!😊

  17. Bethany says...

    This home tour is one of my favorites ever. Cup of Jo does it again! As we are soon to buy our first home and it will probably be one that needs updating, it’s so inspiring to see how they live in a home with young children while renovating! The architectural details really stand out with the tasteful way everything has been painted and decorated — well done! What is the plant on the shelf in the kitchen next to the hanging aprons? I love the texture of all the tendrils hanging down!

  18. Mo says...

    Love this house and how they’ve decorated/reno’d! So beautiful. I would kill for that little sunroom!

  19. K says...

    This is all so lovely.
    And she is stunning.

  20. tina crisas says...

    What a lovely home! I love the kiddo’s room and sun room area, too! We have that ikea light fixture that is featured in the master bedroom in our living room area, we have two, and they are big and beautiful, I just love them!

  21. Agnès says...

    Such a beautiful and relaxed atmosphere. I LOVE your hall, I think you should keep it that way, it is unique and will always be a special place and topic for conversations. Also, I would love to see your house in 10 or 20 years, it will age beautifully I’m sure. Thank you so muc for sharing! (your cat is hilarious!)

  22. Linn says...

    What a gorgeous home, very inspiring! There is a Swedish real estate firm that I always look to for interior design inspo and this house reminded med so much of that. The real estate agency is based in the city of Gothenburg on the west coast of sweden and the houses/apartments for sale there are always gorgeous and inspiring. Here is the website, although its in Swedish, at least there are loads of nice photos to look at :)

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      ooh thank you, linn!

  23. Tracy O says...

    So. Lovely!!! This home is warm, fresh and zingy. Will Tiffany give us a tutorial on how she stained the kitchen floors (or, the stain she used)? The combination of the blue cabinets and floors is sublime. Also, I love the wide range of furnishings – another reader commented that it isn’t precious which is another thing I like about it too. Thank you for sharing this beautiful space.

  24. SARAH says...

    Love her style and really loved her color choices! So calming.

    Also loved getting a glimpse of her outdoor area….I see raised beds and unusual plants… that made me think… maybe COJ Garden Tours? A spring feature?

    • Jenn says...

      I love this idea!

    • Csilla says...

      Brilliant idea! Yes! Please! I’d love garden tours!

  25. Christy C says...

    Adore this house!!!

  26. Gabrielle says...

    I like the contrast of new and old throughout the house and I really like the kitchen stove/over combo. Can you share which one she has? It looks perfect for my small apartment I’m re-doing!

  27. Suzanne says...

    What a lovely home – so warm and inviting! And that kitchen is a stunner!

  28. Alex Mac says...

    I have to ask… does she prune her rubber tree? I have a rubber tree that is very tall and I would love it to start branching like that!!
    Beautiful house, and oh I would just kill for an English conservatory!

  29. Larissa says...

    Absolutely love this house! Tiffany has great style. It has such a beautiful and calm presence.

  30. Shirley says...

    Everything about this home, as well as Tiffany and her family, is gorgeous! Very beautiful and relatable- all of it. But can we please get the recipe for the sticky salmon and coconut rice? Pretty please??!

    • Zoe says...

      right?! sounds heavenly!

  31. Em says...

    Could anybody else just hear her lovely British accent in these captions? I felt at ease just reading through this post and looking at the peaceful, softly lit photos. Thanks, Cup of Jo, for letting me escape lockdown (at least in my mind) this afternoon.

  32. Anna F says...

    The half-stripped hallway!!! I love it so much. Keeps the history alive, a little flare, and some nice contrast to the lovely, clean, curated vibe of the rest of the home. Thanks so much for sharing :)

  33. Sara Campbell says...

    I adore this home – beautifully designed but so livable. I would love to know the name and brand of the paint colour in the bedroom!

  34. Anna says...

    I spotted Seedlip on her kitchen shelf and am so curious to hear – how is it? How does she drink it? Who else has tried it and has thoughts?

    • Julia says...

      I like it! I usually just put a glug in some plain seltzer with ice, sometimes a squeeze of lemon or a slice of cucumber. Very refreshing & hits the spot.

    • Was popping in the comments to say the same! So fun to spot Seedlip. I’ve yet to try…but love how it’s all natural and, of course, AF.

    • Kris says...

      I love Seedlip- so happy to see it on her shelf. I find most people like the Spice 94 flavor. I also like Citrus and Garden. Definitely makes mocktails more interesting. Congrats to other sober folks making it through this pandemic!

    • Kathryn says...

      I have had a couple of bottles of the Seedlip Spice, and tried the Garden (I think, it was served with frozen peas!) in a bar, and like it instead of gin sometimes. I drink it as I would tend to with gin, with either tonic/lemon, or cloudy lemonade (which is fizzy in the UK, not sure about elsewhere, but more like homemade in flavour than something like Sprite) if I fancy it a bit sweeter. I have found that I need more than I would measure in of gin, so it does go down quite quickly, and feels a bit expensive because of that (I do tend to pick gin on offer, so there is also that), but the flavour is nice. Not quite got the gin kick, but it doesn’t feel like a poor man’s imitation; certainly worth a try in my opinion.

  35. Sarah says...

    What a lovely home. I just finished the Maisie Dobbs series (highly recommend by the way), which has many stories set in Kent. It is a place I would love to travel once we are able to again. Since those books are historical, I was delighted to see a contemporary home in that area!

  36. Reba says...

    Yaaay! I’ve been checking every day and hoping for a house tour (guess I’m a little tired of mine right now ;) And this home is lovely, as is the sentiment about “loving the house as it is for now”

  37. C says...

    Any chance we can see some photos of the outdoor space in the backyard? Those plants and those planters you can see in the photos are dreamy!

  38. Lynn says...

    “I struggle with my mental health sometimes”

    ❤️ Thank you

    • H says...

      appreciated this as well!

    • Sarz says...

      I need to chime in my appreciation, too! Every time a super-cool, has-their-sh*t-together female speaks to normalize mental health awareness, it bolsters me every time. Thank you Tiffany.

  39. Ll says...

    Soooo I’m mostly interested in knowing where all the Swedish influences comes from? Is someone in the household Swedish? Or what’s the relation? I mean ikea is everywhere but not Smålands skinnmanufaktur and other typically Swedish stores!

    • Hi LL, I’m an interior stylist by trade and I write about Nordic-inspired interiors and design, I just love the simplicity of it :)

  40. Alexandra says...

    Beautiful, inspirational, and approachable home! Random detail – My husband was born in Kent. :) Also, the lock-down get-down playlist is fire!! I will be listening to this over and over. Thanks Tiffany!

  41. RoseMarie London says...

    Love her dress in the last shot. Source?

  42. liz says...

    love this! she seems super cool too.

  43. I love this home and Tiffany’s style. Thank you for sharing!

  44. Pam says...

    I found this whole house tour so calming. Each room had just what it needed – not too much, not too little. It gave me a sense that this family recognises what ‘enough’ is and it feels like a lovely place to call home.

  45. AMK says...

    I love this home tour so much! Thank you!!

    • AMK says...

      Also, I LOVE your playlists! Thank you! I “hearted” all of them :)

  46. Jade says...

    Such a lovely and real looking home. Is the conservatory painted upvc or timber? I have the dreaded white upvc conservatory and really can’t stand it. Wondering whether paint is an option now.

  47. Meg says...

    This is EXACTLY what I’d like in my future home. Alas, we rent, so we can’t make major changes.

  48. Deana says...

    Lovely home and home owner. A week of outfits, please!

  49. Jenn says...

    But where did she get those pants!? They are amazing.

    • AMK says...

      Same! Would love to know where she got those pants!

    • Laura says...

      I also want to know about the pants! Please and thank you!

    • kim says...

      LOVE this whole house, but really… those pants 😍

    • Jacquie says...

      +1 please let us know! Even though I’m not sure I could pull them off, they look amazing on Tiffany!

    • Danae Colomer says...

      yes! I want to know about those pants too! Gorgeous!
      Where can we find those?

    • Shannon says...

      Yes, also dying to know about the pants,

  50. K says...

    Absolutely love this tour, and LOVE living and enjoying a home while stripping walls and doing minor renovations. Also, those fireplaces are so gorgeous. And, as a former pixie cut fanatic (lived in my pixie cut for nearly fifteen years), I love her hair. Tiffany has an effortless, beautiful look.

  51. Carol says...

    I love what they have done with it. It has old, beautiful bones but they are adding a youthful, modern vibe.

  52. Michelle says...

    This home is AMAZING. Thank you for sharing such a peaceful space while my house explodes, ha.

  53. Caitlin says...

    Such a lovely, at ease home. We just moved into a house after apartment living for many years, and I am feeling huge pressure to make everything “perfect.” The beauty of their pink hallway was just what I needed.

  54. ash says...

    one more thing, i adore that clock in the kitchen, but eeek–$600 for a wall clock! i always giggle when I see the prices at ‘design within reach’…..

  55. ash says...

    Ditto what everyone else has said on this one. The coziness of this home, wow! And such thoughtful curation (plus–her wardrobe, man oh man.) On the bedroom walls, may I ask what shade of valspar paint she used–I totally agree, I usually detest beige but this is sooooo yummy!

    • Hi Ash, the paint is beautiful – it changes in the light throughout the day and is called Lark Song.

  56. Claire says...

    Wonderful place- so many lovely features (love the floors, color palette, and very fine and excellent to have a fireplace and a sun room and a cat!)
    I am kind of mesmerized by the hallway photo thought because of how Tiffany’s image looks so ethereal.

  57. I love absolutely everything about this home. So chic! Would love to see her week of outfits, too.

    • Stefanie says...

      Oooh yes, me too! Loved the housetour but I kept thinking that I would love to see a week of outfits or a beauty uniform. Since I also have a pixi cut I am always interested in tips and tricks. Anyway, thanks for sharing Tiffany! Your home looks absolutely stunning and so warm and inviting!

  58. Heather says...

    Love this home tour! Question: How do they deal with cords on the TV cart? We are about to move into a brownstone with a fireplace and I don’t want to cover it with a TV, but can’t quite figure out how to make a rolling cart work with all the cords and cables. My partner works in film, so we need a TV. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    • Hi Heather, I’m jealous of your brownstone! The trolley lives in the sun room now and there’s another unit in its place but tbh we haven’t solved the cable issue yet. Beyond strapping them together or chasing them into the wall, it’s a conundrum…

  59. Naomi says...

    How about that first outfit, though? Any details? I LOVE it!

    • Thanks Naomi – the trousers are from COS two years ago. Not sure I can zip them up after a month of lockdown though!

  60. Katerra says...

    I love Tiffany’s plants! They add so much life to the space. The problem I’ve run in to though, is when I don’t use a saucer under them i have to move them all to the sink or tub to water them. But that is so much work. So i use a saucer but i prefer the look Tiffany has with no saucer. Any suggestions??

    • Christina says...

      My suggestion is that you plant your plant in one pot, terracotta or plastic, the ordinary kind with a hole in the bottom. Then you place it in a bigger pot, without a hole, and voilà, you can water the plant. In Swedish we call them ytterkrukor, which would translate into something like “outer pots” :-) .

    • AMK says...

      Christina, we do this as well! It works great because you can actually dump water in the big pot (you can dump that water from yesterday’s water bottle or just fresh water) and the plant will absorb the water it needs when it needs it. That way you dont have to worry about watering the plant all the time, you can just monitor the water levels as needed.

  61. ellen patton says...

    GAH!!! This home is beautiful!

  62. Natalie says...

    Beautiful! This is pretty boring, but any chance of finding out where the curtain rods (!) in the living and bedroom are from? I am on this very boring hunt and would love to know.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      i’ll ask!

    • Lauren E. says...

      I’m here to tell you, curtain rods can change a room! I had a very cheap boring one and recently replaced it with a slightly cooler, modern one from Amazon, and my husband walked in and said, “WOW the window! It looks amazing! What did you do?” I love those types of details.

    • Natalie says...

      Lauren E, which on Amazon?? :)

    • Hi Natalie, our bedroom rods are good, old fashioned Ikea (they’re double for voiles and curtains) and the living room is currently a really crappy plastic bay runner the previous owners left up. Not got round to replacing it yet as bays are tricky!

  63. Maywyn says...

    The decor is thoughtful and relaxing. The bunk bed rails would make a nice adult style headboard, cozy for propping with higher railings.

  64. That white-pink hallway is so cool-looking! Also, kudos to showing a house in progress. I have a feeling that’s the sort of house that most of us live in…. Or at least, being married to a carpenter, that’s MY house.

    No table to eat at? No workspaces or desks? I’d love to see that part of the house, too!!

  65. Auntie Mame says...

    Love the house, and Tiffany’s dress in the last photo — is there a credit for the dress?!

    • Hi Auntie Mame, the dress is from Monki, last year I think…

  66. El says...

    Love this home… but that print makes me cringe a little. The traditional housing of the Sonoran desert doesn’t include Plains-style tipis. It’s making me cringe to see different indigenous traditions/homelands collapsed like they’re just design choices. I realize folks overseas aren’t as aware of some of this history, but it still feels worth mentioning.

  67. Eliza says...

    I’m sure I’m just not looking hard enough, but this is the first time I’ve seen beige and LOVED it – your bedroom is so soothing! Tiffany, you are pulling this all together beautifully.

  68. Kara says...

    This home is so dreamy!

  69. abi says...

    Such a beautiful apartment! Wow, wow, wow!

  70. b says...

    This home is lovely. I would be thrilled to use that sunroom area for reading and writing. As a writer, I dream of a cozy space with excellent light and a beautiful view to tap away at the keyboard for hours on end.

  71. Csilla says...

    Love it! Can we invite Tiffany back for a “This week I wore” spread???? Please!

  72. Lindsay says...

    I adore this home and seriously love the pink hallway as is!!

  73. Annie K. says...

    It’s beautiful! I love Tiffany’s stewardship of the old home- she’s not beholden to it, but appreciates it and cares for it while making it a modern and warm space.

    Do you think Tiffany would be willing to share her recipes for those favorite meals she mentions? I’m salivating.

    • Margaret Ray says...

      Agreed. What’s sticky salmon?? I need it.

  74. Erin says...

    What a beautiful home! Love the light and the warmth. Makes me wish I had a conservatory. Question: in the final photo in the conservatory, there is a large black tower just outside the window. Is that a chimney? A water collection system? A composting system? I need to know!

    • Jade says...

      I think it’s a water butt to collect runoff from the conservatory.

    • RM says...

      I showed the photo to my husband and asked the exact same thing. ( He guessed rainwater basin.)

  75. Marki says...

    Beautiful home! I also like the pink hallway exactly how it is. Also, those wide leg pants Tiffany is wearing in the first picture are perfect! Thanks for the pick-me-up this morning!

  76. Debby says...

    This is a beautiful home and, she’s right- you can feel the love in the photos! I am also so relieved to see that the kids share a room and it appears to look orderly as that’s on my mind at the moment. Great find!

  77. Eloise says...

    A lot of these tours just read a bit too “precious” to me (great for them, not for me) but not this one. I’m just gonna move right in.

    • Krista says...

      I feel just the same way! This home is lovely, and I love that everything isn’t perfectly, expensively done as in some house tours here.

  78. It’s not always that you see house interior that’s both homely and cosy, as well as stylish and magazine chic (that phrase just came to my head). I really love that shade of blue – it adds warmth against the neutral colours.

  79. Dr. Kathy L. Lukey says...

    Everything about this is just lovely. Love that your cat stares at the cabinet for his food! And that outdoor area…coziness!

  80. Emily says...

    Typo alert! “A” English kitchen? 😬

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      thank you, emily!

  81. Katie says...

    Wow, I guess I am extra emotional these days – aren’t we all? – but seeing this beautiful home is tearing me up this morning. Absolutely stunning, stylish and really just quite extraordinary to see a historic home updated so uniquely.
    Tiffany and he family should be so proud of their work. A renovation of this scale is a massive task. Thank you for sharing it with us.

      I’m with you friend – I also teared up reading this piece. This is such a beautiful space. I love so many of the quirky bits like the teeny tiny oven and Mosey the dapper cat and that breathtaking conservatory. Oh my! It’s got me all choked up and dreaming of spring.

      Me too Katie!! I’ve never read a home tour so slowly and looked at the pictures quite as closely as this particular one. The conservatory and Tiffany’s use of it made me tear up probably a result of a longing for a sunny spot in my own home where I can have some time to myself; would be so dreamy.

    I believe you mean “An English Home!”
