We are head over heels for the low-key elegance to be found here. No rah-rah, no flash, no bling or imposingly huge residence. Just a lovely restrained, Japanese influenced set of spaces, walls and garden. Absolute lifestyle catnip for those of us who long for the days when being cool was measured with a boho yardstick – each line a marker of what you read, what you made, the times you had, the friends and family you fostered and the peaceful, humble environment you based it in – a far cry from the bloated worship of stuff, selfies and excess taking over every suburb. We’d truly save this one if we could.
