I’m going to Somerset, so put your coat on. A bit of a problem is that we need £3million, but let’s worry when we get there. This stunning modernist residence was built in 1935 as the residence of composer Sir Arthur Bliss. Surrounded by 25 acres of gardens and ancient woodlands, this place is in other words bliss, and I hope so.
is on the market at modern house It’s £2,950,000, but I think it’s the colors and the antique furniture that caught my eye. Often these homes are all stripped down, white with hard floors and modern furnishings. If that’s what you like, that’s fine, but this mix of blues, pinks, and greens makes this house as much period as it is Hollywood. do you want to come see
Shall we start with the details? These include Grade II registered homes, plus Bliss’ music room deep in the woods (also registered) and a four-bedroom guesthouse, all from the screaming fashionable town of Bruton in Somerset. About 11 miles away.
Let’s start with the kitchen, which is on the north side of the house and therefore naturally cooler. Wood panels placed in different directions, very busy with the combination of tiles and shades of green, but all the rules about matching materials are thrown out the window (again), so it looks more modern I’m trying
This also applies to my recent point about not trying to hide the idiosyncrasies of the building. You can’t escape every angle in this room, the difference in ceiling and door heights. You could minimize this by painting everything in one color, but that would still create a lot of shadows, so I’ve done this here from the bold grass green cupboard to the pale mint. How about celebrating with different shades of one color?
In this hall, the mint blue deepens, as does the blue that makes the home’s color scheme look great. Corridors can be naturally dark (although there are windows at the ends of this corridor). Consider using two or three colors there, then incorporate them into the room. But go with the paler version so that the room feels instantly brighter. Bigger and lighter, but still part of the whole.
This living room contains the darkest version of blue, but mint green remains in one cupboard. The rugs feature a dark blue hue that accentuates the shapes of the furniture and the dark window frames draw attention to the view beyond.
This is also an example of not being too bound by rules. He has two white walls with a dark ceiling, a wall of windows and two white beams across the ceiling. I wouldn’t advise anyone to do this because on paper it could just look confusing, but it works here. Sometimes you have to try and paint the parts you don’t like if it doesn’t work.
Here is a detail of the far end of the upper room. Arguments for dark window frames, if any. The wood, black and natural carpets are all natural colors and enhance the beauty of the outside scenery.
Here are some painting tricks that might come in handy. The corridor below is long and narrow. The green wall on one side accentuates the greenery seen through the windows on the other side. But the trick is the orange doorway in the middle. This cuts off your vision and you are no longer in a tunnel. A pendant light also fits perfectly inside the orange doorway.
If you want the hallway to look even shorter, painting the back wall orange will have the effect of shortening the space by drawing the wall closer to the orange door frame in the middle. This is a good trick if you live in a narrow Victorian house and want it to feel short and wide instead of long and narrow.
This bedroom is a hymn to blue, but everything works together to make the outside view the star of the show. Blue walls, blue window frames, blue curtains and blue furniture. This is a bold design, now called color dressing, but you can see it really works. It works without views.
This room, on the other hand, is rich in wood and caramel tones and has a blue and white ceiling. Imagine waking up here on a sunny morning. And because it gives off a strong Wes Anderson vibe, I had to include the image below. Because it’s been a big theme on Instagram for the past few weeks.
But who would have thought the roof would be painted pink when the tour ended here? Also, did the photographer set up that yellow ladder specifically for this shoot? We’ve toured this home, but we still have questions. Roughly where can you get £3 million from?
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. For those of you who want to get closer this week, don’t forget you can check out all of our details. Click here to travel to Italy. We promise to discuss every interior detail in equal detail.
