Home stories

Today we show you around a huge loft, former  factory in North-West London (NW6) by Queen's Park. This area is known as posh and is very popular among the wealthy Londoners. This magnificent property and newly-developed loft-style apartment with a double-height studio space, also has a parking space and... (are you sitting down?) a ROOF TERRACE.
Have a look >>

Starting off with the open plan kitchen: everything is kept very simple and bright and the marriage of stainless steel and marble is a perfect combination.

A dining area is placed right next to the kitchen and for a nice reception is the integrated bar the perfect place. The palm tree is a nice addition to the combination of the rustic and modern style for a little coziness.


The open lounge area convinces with nature related colours and simplicity. The white leather sofas and the design classic Noguchi coffee table are an eye-catcher. The classic design invites to redecorate and create more space.
This beautiful property is on the market with Domus Nova for £2,950,000. We know, it's shocking! But unfortunately property prices in London are far from reality yet everyone loves this city, for a lot of good reasons.

Keep posted for the next home story!

BBQ season is finally here and people try to get outside as much as possible to enjoy the nice weather. Whether it be going to a park, drinks after work, sitting outside the pub or at home in the garden with family and friends - spending time outside in summer is a must! The garden or terrace becomes another living room, where people enjoy the scents of summer flowers and soak up the sun. To create the perfect atmosphere, there are a lot of different materials, flowers or plants, cushions and lamps that can be used.

Design Feature: Exposed Brick

Introducing a brick wall into the living room can be a trendy and original idea. These types of walls are usually found in older houses, however, it also depends on the materials used at the time of construction. If you are living in a newly built home or you are hesitant to experiment by playing around with the plaster, do not panic because there are now facing panels available.

These walls are versatile and they offer multiple decorating options. They will bring a distinctive and truly lived-in atmosphere to your home. It is a good idea to keep adjoining walls white and then follow it up with minimal decor. Brick walls are perfectly suited to an industrial home style.

Home Hacks - How To Remove Coffee Stains From Furniture

Image: Pinterest

The majority of us all enjoy sitting down and relaxing with a cup of coffee. However, that relaxed state of mind can often change instantly if that coffee gets spilled, especially if it's on upholstery or carpet. So to prepare you, just in case you should ever find yourself in such unfortunate circumstances, here are some coffee cleaning home hacks.

 1) Soda Water

This is to be used instantly after the spillage, pour it liberally over the stain and blot the area until it lifts. It is advised that this will remove most of the stain but not all of it.

2) Beer

After spilling a perfectly good cup of coffee you may not want to then use a perfectly good beer in an attempt to remove it, but it is very good for lifting the stain out! Rub the beer lightly onto the material and the stain should (fingers crossed!) disappear.

3) White Vinegar

An old favourite of home stain removers, white vinegar can also do the job. Pat the spot with a with an undiluted, white vinegar moistened towel just before washing (or sponging depending where the spillage is) with your usual detergent.

4) Baby Wipes

Simple but effective, they can be used to blot up both the liquid and the stain.

5) Baking Soda

Another stain remover classic, create a paste with warm water and massage into the fibres of the upholstery/carpet. Allow it to dry (which is usually pretty quick!) and vacuum the residue up. This should remove the stain and the odour.

6) Egg Yolk

A surprising one for some, but may people swear by this stain remedy. Beat the egg yolk and work into the stain with a tea towel. Rinse thoroughly with water, and the stain should be gone.
