Inspiration: Combining Vintage and Modern

Inspiration: Combining Vintage and Modern

Combining vintage and modern isn't always easy, especially when the vintage dates all the way back to 1722. See how 18th century floorboards and lime plastering successfully mesh with mid-century design classics in a drool-worthy interior below.

The five floors glow with magnificent natural light, perfect – we imagine – for the Huguenot silk weaver who dwelled within. Mostly, however, we're stunned that the beadboard, cornices and flagstone hold their own so well against such unabashedly modern furnishings.

Part of this home's success might be the muted color palettes and the fact that period details are embraced and even called out, but certainly never overlooked. Without a doubt, this is one East London dwelling that leaves us feeling joyous, not jarred.
