The Olde Bell Inn: Traditional Meets Modern

The Olde Bell Inn: Traditional Meets Modern

Renovated from an old coach house and Tudor barn in Britain, the Olde Bell Inn is a perfect example of a traditional building that's been updated for this century using simple, spare furnishings. We're showing the space for it's brilliant use (and re-use) of natural materials, which reminds us that sometimes the most environmentally friendly thing you can do is work with what you've got and keep it simple...

Our favorite firm - Studioilse - designed the space, and we particularly love the bedrooms for their tranquility. This look is also fairly easy to imitate with thrift store finds and natural materials. The trick is decluttering your own space so to achieve the clean, peaceful vibe of these rooms.
