Livingetc House Tours

I had the best day last week with a group of other bloggers as we were invited by ao.com to take a tour of some of the amazing houses that have been featured in Livingetc magazine. Nosing around beautiful houses? My dream day.

I liked something about each house, even if it was just the space, although there wasn’t one that I would class as my ideal home. However, all of the houses were full to the brim with inspiration and I was able to take ideas from them all. Here are some snaps I took whilst wandering around, sucking up all of the interiors goodness. I wonder which style you will like the most…

Boho Victorian terrace

Light, bright and airy with so much character, soul and zingy colour.

Grand five storey Victorian mansion

I couldn’t capture the extraordinary interior of this home as I was a bit awestruck at the pure ecelecticism. I only managed to pick up my camera at the more ‘ordinary’ parts. To see more pictures that represent the house better pop over to Kimberly’s blog, Swoonworthy.

Can you guess which one was my favourite and which one I wasn’t so keen on?

    Aww thanks for the mention hun! It was SUCH a good day and so nice to see you 😀 I love that you captured details I didn’t see and vice versa! xxx

      Really interesting to see all our different photos and what we focused on xx

    It was so lovely to meet you! I have yet to post two of my favourites… 😉 It’s great to see the bits you’ve captured. xo

      So wonderful to meet you! Had such a fun day x

    I reckon you liked the first boho one, but wasn’t so keen on the polished look of the last one? That would be my answer too! I love the character of the first, with all the colour and pattern, but I’d combine it with the second to calm it down and have some lovely grey walls and midcentury furniture! X

      I think we’re the same person, Cate. That’s EXACTLY what I was thinking. Great minds 😉 I loved the space and style of the first one but all the ‘stuff’ was a bit much for me as I love the minimalism of the second. A combination of the two would be perfect! X

    Sounds like a perfect day! The first one’s my favourite too – love all the pops of colour and the very inviting leafy green garden. Much as I try, I’m never going to be a minimalist 😉

      Ha! I’m half way there but not quite! Xx

    Beautiful post. I’ve been enjoying all the photographs published from the day, and it’s amazing how differently everyone captured the interiors. It was so much fun, and I enjoyed finally meeting you!

      Great to meet you, too, Natasha! Such an interesting experience seeing how everyone captured the houses differently and reacted to them so differently x

    Lovely post Katy and great images. I’m like you I think, there were things about all of the homes I loved but not one that was my ideal. Just shows how individual our homes can be, and how much they need to be a reflection of who you are xx
