House Tour: A Colonial Home Renovation

I absolutely love Colonial architecture, and I especially love it when it's given a sympathetic update that preserves features while bringing in modern elements. This stunning townhouse in Philadelphia certainly fits that bill. A stunning colonial home renovation in Philadelphia with beautiful modern twits. Gorgeous white bathroom, big fireplaces and stunning fixtures like the chandeliers.

The white walls and trim give a blank canvas where the room's features, such as this stunning fireplace and beautiful chandelier, can shine

A simple chandelier echoes the relatively unadorned Colonial style of the past, while a walk in shower offers a welcome modern addition.

The kitchen renovation also kept it simple and modern, yet with throwbacks to the past in the cabinet hardware and area rug.

A fantastic renovation. See the whole project here.

Autumn in the UK

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]If you are heading to the UK this autumn, well I'm envious! It's one of my favourite destinations, and never fails to offer a thousand and one amazing things to see and do. The Guardian has a run down of everything art, design and architecture for this autumn, from Ai Wei Wei to 576 hours of sound in a medieval ruin.
