Extraordi-Air Space

Camberwell Pub Stunning former pub in Camberwell south London Abundance of period features with great props Panelled wooden walls gives gentleman's club ambiance Kitsch meets baroque
You are asking, where is this exquisite English spot? Okay, maybe you are NOT asking that but I will tell you anyway!
I found a perfectly lovely website, Airspace, that shows some truly beautiful, classically English spaces. You can click on the style and type of place you would like to see as well as the area...this could be anywhere in England or in Ireland, Italy, other areas of Europe and even Morocco as well. This site is used by those in the movie/TV industry as a source for location shoots.
It is a fun way to wile away a moment or 5.
Highbury House, is described in this way...
Warm modern and traditional mix Victorian home in North London
Open plan kitchen dining and living room
Great tongue and groove bathroom with central roll top bath
Wooden floors and carpeting
Ah yes but how about Lavender Grove?
Very pretty light house with feminine shabby chic feel in East London
White furniture,white floor boards & old french mirror & cabinets
Shaker style kitchen
Free standing bath
Beautiful garden with variety of roses-especially pretty in the summer months.
Ooh...how about Norfolk House? Georgianised Tudor House in Norfolk
Built approx 1740
1900 Acres of beautiful English Countryside
Antique furniture Lake with ducks and swans
Church Ruin in grounds
16 Bedrooms for shooting in 7 bedrooms for staying in
Library Drawing room
Large Kitchen
Large stable block converted into Antique shop
And then there is this beauty on Richmond Road...
Faded grandeur spacious home in East London
Huge family kitchen
Stunning feminine,
antique and romantic interior French boudoir furniture and mirrors
Great evergreen garden
Stripped wooden flooring
So, anyone want to pop over and see some of these during the holidays? Uh huh. That's what I thought you would say! When should we leave? *smile*
I hope you all have a sweet week!
Blessings to you all...
Love an Hugs,
Susie Q

Beautiful spaces. I'd love to spend a vacation in any one of them. That would be lacking though unless Hugh Grant were there too. :)
