Not on the High St

On a search for alternative Christmas Wreaths like the one I mentioned earlier today, I found some quirky and some traditional solutions from Not On The High Street…

How ‘Little Women’ is the above stunning wreath from The Flower Room? These are made from white roses touched with a hint of green, eucalyptus, hypericum berries, and fir cones. Once the flowers have dried this would still keep as a stunning piece of decor.

These Laser-cut leaf wreaths from Horsfall and White are a stunning contemporary alternative, but still in-keeping with a traditional Christmas.

Highgate

I found this house in Highgate via The Modern House and it immediately reminded me of a book review Lauren wrote a few months ago – a ghost story set overlooking Highgate Cemetary.

This house in its appearance couldn’t be more different from the house in the book, yet at the same time more similar to the core of the story, celebrating this magical part of old London.

Highgate

A breathtaking four-bedroom house beside Waterlow Park, this piece of architecture was recently completed to a design by the celebrated architects Eldridge Smerin. The house has replaced a 1970s structure designed by the architect John Winter, and uses the same footprint.

The south and west elevations consist of full-height glazing that is entirely frameless. This provides spectacular leafy views across Highgate’s Victorian cemetery, and reduces the mass of the building, settling it into its landscape. By contrast, the street fa├žade is a curtain wall of honed black granite, steel panels and opaque glass, ensuring the utmost privacy.

I can’t even express how beautiful this building is to me [not so keen on the couch] it literally invites England into its daily life.

I love the immense skylight in the kitchen, so you can feel the outside air when you are cooking, and imagine sitting and reading a good book by those huge dolls-house style windows which cast a homely yellow light over the cemetery. Sigh!
