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 new-build, 1960s-style home in Oxford. Double-height windows flood the main living spaces with natural light and provide leafy views of the garden. In the kitchen, she’s strategically placed the hob and sink on a peninsula unit, so she can face the garden or guests sitting in the 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 details, including exposed concrete block walls, a wooden, open-tread staircase and oriented strand board (OSB) wall cladding.
