This Travel Tuesday we're celebrating our members' love of architecture & design. Property renovation is really popular in the UK & while it's a challenge, it often yields incredible results. Here are six of our favourites listed on Love Home Swap.
This Georgian townhouse was completely renovated in 2010 and boasts interiors by leading London designer, Kelly Hoppen. Located in luxurious Chelsea, this property fits its surroundings perfectly, with a stunning period façade and a gym, hot tub and media room all enclosed inside.
This beautiful Victorian home dates back to 1890 and was renovated in 2011 with the goal of blending the traditional Victorian features with a modern design. By blending chic minimalist features with a splash of the ornate, we'd say they achieved their goal.
In chic Primrose Hill you'll find this radically redesigned apartment. With the help of an architect, this home was rebuilt and redesigned with fashion, art and architecture in mind, resulting in a beautiful reflection of one of London's most sophisticated locales.
Ingmanthorpe Grange is a stunning south facing barn conversion in West Yorkshire. This home has not only managed to balance the traditional barn feel with a contemporary look, but features like under-the-floor heating, make this barn feel like a real home.
For the experience of a home built from virtually nothing, this apartment in Parsons Green is as good as they come. Built from a shell 12 years ago, this home makes the best of it's surroundings with double height windows that provide plenty of light and beautiful river views.
We have a bit of a soft spot for Shoreditch at Love Home Swap, so we couldn't leave this loft off our list. It's still a work in progress, but the mixture of antique, vintage and workshop fittings and features, coupled with beautiful high ceilings make it a stunning conversion.
This just goes to show, as much as a love of travel, Love Home Swap members have a love of design, architecture and their own homes.
