Up a flight of stairs was the master bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom was a master class in hygge, with warm colours and gorgeous textures. The leather headboard was a nice touch, giving the design a bit of edge, and the heather colour on the wall was a nice take on the Pantone colour of 2018, purple.
The bathroom ticked all kinds of interior porn boxes, with the marble wall and floors, the ever so fashionable Crittal look screen and black shower. Monochrome in bathrooms, like kitchens, is an absolute design classic, but the marble adds a luxe feel and the black gives an industrial edge which works so well in a bathroom.
Up one more flight of stairs and there was my favourite room, the kid's bedroom/playroom. Kid's rooms can often look a bit twee, but this was done perfectly, looking very stylish but also very fun. Using paint to create interest with murals on walls is a great thing to do in a kid's room, and here Houzz had taken this idea but used wallpaper to create the mountain shapes on the walls. The light fitting was absolutely stunning and stopped the room looking too kiddy with all the small furniture!
On the other side of the room was some really excellent wallpaper featuring animals - again a classic in a kid's room, but again with some very stylish furniture, including the gorgeous danish style armchair giving it a smart, design led look, rather than twee cutesy one.
I really love a house tour, and this pop up event by Houzz was really enjoyable. I'd love to see other companies do this sort of thing. Apart from the Ideal Home Show at London Olympia, and the Living Etc House Tours (locations vary) there aren't many house tour events purely focusing on interior design, and it's a great way for brands to get their products in front of potential customers.
