Can we talk about 47 Park Avenue? It’s one of my favorite blogs and I just had to share a few pictures from it.
It’s written by a guy named Michael in England who shares his home with a guy named Jonathan and it’s just a simply a diary of their renovations. I can’t really tell you much else about the guys – their site doesn’t even have pictures of them – but Michael’s Blogger profile says he’s the owner of Shootfactory, a UK based location agent. (I only know their names because they each have their own private dressing rooms in the house. Yup. You read that right. Check them out here and here.)
Michael claims he’s not a professional designer/decorator but damn, does he have a good eye. He is fearless and it ALL works. The attention to detail is simply stunning. Check out some of these shocking before and after shots.

As you can see, Michael loves a good black ceiling.
Check out their en suite. (That’s known as a master bath to those of us in the US.) And yes, that’s a chandelier hanging from a metal rolling rack. You know you wish you thought of that.
One of my favorite spaces is the home office that he carved out of the upstairs hallway:
I love the Boardwalk vintage sign – and the dog, of course. Note to self: black floors look as awesome as black ceilings.
And if the bulldog wasn’t enough for you, there’s always this looker sitting next to a pink couch.
Good work Michael, you mysterious genius! Can’t wait to see what you do with the kitchen!
