3. homify 360°: Victorian roof extension in Surrey

From the street, at first glance, it is hard to tell that there has been any extension at all added to the roof of this Victorian home in Surrey. Upon further inspection you begin to realise this home hides something special in the roof. Here you will find a new open space, with two single beds and a lounge area; the perfect retreat for visiting guests. Click here to see what we mean.

4. Before & after: Renovating a villa in Tuscany

The romance of Tuscany is undeniable; the rolling hills, the warm summer evenings, the vineyards, ancient towns, and the stunning coastline is the stuff of fairytales. So, when we came across this renovated Tuscan villa, we knew it was going to be a crowd favourite. To see the drab farmhouse converted into a stunning rural retreat, click here.
