I’m going in a million different directions today! Rather than leave you high and dry, I’ve decided to re-post one of my favorite Sunday archives featuring a light filled London home re-imagined by interior designer, and home owner, Sheila Harley. Built in the 1860s, the house retains many of its original features including fireplaces, shutters, mouldings and banisters. The only major changes were putting in a new Smallbone kitchen, adding a large family bathroom and replacing the old parquet floor with oak boards. The pale neutral palette enhances the beauty of the period architecture and creates a perfect backdrop for the designers contemporary furniture, antiques and collection of tribal art. In addition, the striped rugs and zebra ottoman add a splash of pattern and personality to this family home. A Victorian gem thoughtfully restored for a young modern family…how refreshing!
