Georgian Meets Modern

Believe it or not this magnificent 1801 house in Somerset, England, was once a shoe company. It took four years and five architects to transform it from business offices into a modern family home for six. The interiors, by London designer Ilse Crawford, are truly astonishing. I'm specially enamored with the bold contrast she created by using super modern decor in such an Old World setting. She made a conscious effort not to fill all 40 rooms with tons of furniture that would interfere with the architecture. Her sense of design is flawless. I don't have words to express my fascination for this place... It's absolutely drool-worthy. If you want to learn more about the design of Dinder House click here.

There's just way too much here to love - it's all magnificent! If I had to pick a favorite, it'd be those lamps! Floor lamps that look like gigantic table lamps - I want them! This is an amazing pad.

This apartment is so cozy! Thanks for sharing something from my country, it's so rare to see something really good in Greece, I feel disappointed sometimes!

Those murals on the walls and the chairs in the dining room...simply stunning. I could look at this all day. Thank you for sharing!
