Tour an Architect’s Home Filled With Light and Vintage Charm
In this episode of Houzz TV Live, architect Lesley Cotton gives a virtual tour of her custom home in Oxford, England. Double-height windows flood the main living spaces with natural light and provide leafy views of the backyard. In the kitchen, Cotton strategically placed the cooktop and sink on a peninsula so she could face the backyard or guests in a dining nook. An airy loft-like living room perches over the kitchen and features warm wood elements and vintage furniture. Famed designers Charles and Ray Eames inspired several of the home’s design details, including exposed concrete block walls, an open-tread wooden staircase and oriented strand board (OSB).
