Too old to be young.

And, too young to be old. 


Without saying it, that is what my client meant.

And that shall be the premiss when we begin their new house.





The double drawing room.

Currently a very poor mix of neo Georgian, Arts and Crafts, and contemporary Scandinavian elements. 
 With an absolutely hideous reproduction Louis XV chimney thrown in for good measure. 



Luckily, we had concentrated on a few good pieces for their transitional rental.









Current inspirations for the new house:



photographed by Baron Adolph de Meyer, 1907










Fontana Arte and Cole & Son











And, the randomness life can bring.







Now playing: Deee-Lite - Groove Is In The Heart
