Interiors Style: Old and New

Mixing old and new is how I love to decorate and I think lots of people do too. I  love the interest, stories and charm of old pieces and if you mix that with the fresh, clean look of modern pieces I think what you get is a really simple and eclectic style shining through. I love the photography by Emily Gilbert and she has kindly given me permission to use these images so take a little scroll...

This is definitely my cup of tea. I am in love with that dining table and the wide, polished wooden floorboards. It all looks so comfortable and elegant.

How relaxing does this bedroom look? I could just curl up with a good book and be lost for hours. I love the vintage doors made into a headboard and the limed wicker basket. So simple and cosy. 

The styling here is just wonderful, so simple with little pops of colour here and there but nothing too attention-grabbing. It's low key and looks like a really chilled out room to work in. 

That little burst of turquoise from the artwork on the mantelpiece and the stunning flowers really  make this room for me, and give it a lovely laid-back luxe feel. I love the dramatic fireplace too, it creates a really neat focal point.

Right! Back to work. We have a bit of a road trip on for today as we're heading over to see some of my favourite antiques and vintage dealers to pick up some new stock. Just need to get Alfie, some coffee and we're off. Have a great Monday!
