What Does Your Dream House Look Like?

Sophie Hitchens Monday 08th February 2016

At Light Locations we feel so lucky to spend our time looking at, photographing and spending time inside a collection of truly beautiful buildings. From expansive warehouses spaces to grand period houses and from seaside cottages to Scandinavian inspired cabins – the spaces are often breathtaking.

This started us thinking that if we had to choose one Light Location to be our dream house – which one would it be? Despite it being a very difficult task to whittle it down to one house each…we did finally manage it.

Forest HousePalace Road and Hawkhurst House

Madeleine who coordinates all our location work- assisting stylists and clients with everything they need for shoots to run smoothly – decided to go for a hybrid dream home.

“I’d love a mix of a few locations and I have got so much inspiration from our owners. I’d love a mix of:

Forest House – because of its idyllic location in the woods with the beautiful cladding, exterior and cosy wood stove inside.
Palace Road because of the simplicity and pure decor
Hawkhurst House because of it’s quirky mix of new and old

Foxgrove Road

Nicola, who is our office manager and website manager picked the Large Victorian House In Beckenham with its extensive garden and lashings of original period details.

“I love the decor and it feels very homely without being cluttered”

Albourne House

Sophie who founded and owns Light Locations and takes all the fabulous location photography made Albourne House her dream house choice. The Georgian Rectory in West Sussex has a stunning modern kitchen, although it is the outdoor space that won it for Sophie:

“It’s a stunning house and has so much lovely space outside. My children would love the tree house in the wood!

Sussex House

Suzi, who helps us with our Social Media and marketing, chose the stunning New England style house in West Sussex:

‘This house sums up everything about the lifestyle of my dreams – It’s near the coast and emulates the outdoor styling living of New England with the practicalities of the British weather! The amazing open plan kitchen and eating space that allows you to spill outside when the weather allows makes it a house built to entertain.”

“I also adore the way it’s been styled. The lovely touches of seaside chic throughout are perfectly balanced. White washed shutters, sea grass carpets and contemporary driftwood styled furniture perfectly complement the feel of the house.”

“An additional point on the dream house list that this gorgeous house ticks is the sloping rooms in several of the rooms which bring warmth and a cosy feel to a huge home.”

Well that’s it from our team – which Light Location would make your dream house?
