    BMW 7 Series

    When it comes to appreciating the modern motor there are two types of audience to appeal to. Flashy concepts and revitalised classics will tick a lot of boxes for self-confessed petrol heads, but for some it’s all about the interior – how much time do you...

    Railway House

    Jun 4, 15 • 850 Views • HabitatNo Comments

    It’s not entirely clear why this semi-detached house decided to separate itself from its neighbour, but going by the interiors we’re guessing it’s not because the owners of the Railway House were frustrated with the loud music but couldn’t afford to...

    For most retired couples having a (presumably) unruly child request that they want to move back home would involve shifting a few bits of furniture around and having the Dad begrudgingly clear out his “quiet room” to make room for a sofa bed. Not so if...
