Blackwell House

Blackwell is an Arts and Crafts House in Bowness-on-Windermere, designed by MH Baillie Scott. One of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. Still has the feel of a family place, cheerful and tranquil and friendly. And, unsurprisingly, the views over Windermere are wonderful. 

Since it is an Arts and Crafts building, there is beauty to be discovered in every detail of the house. Every piece of furniture has been thought about and designed in particular for this building, from wallpaper and tiles to door and window handles: blades of grass, flower petals… It’s a gorgeous place.
