Here I go again getting all excited about a classic look done just a little differently, traditional decor with a twist, in this case in an old 1860’s in commercial building with exposed brick and crumbling plaster. It reminds me a little of a faded old palazzo, just not so grand, perhaps a bit more gritty and down to earth. There are a few things I would change but I love the idea of fine living in an unusual space, that unexpected twist. Industrial Redux in Mississippi by .
An elegant mix of old and new is at the heart of this home by French-born Californian-based interior designer Florence Livingston of . It is a home with soul, a serene oasis for family and friends with its neutral palette of greys and taupes and those beautiful limed floorboards. What a wonderful home to come home to at the end of a hectic day.
As eclectic and creative as its owner, photographer and film director Cindy Sherman, this East Hampton home by is funky, fab and free spirited. Another great example of traditional with a twist where the textiles, rugs and wallcoverings are the heroes. Country chic that is unpretentious and comfortable.

It’s one of my favourite styles these days. Traditional with a twist. Sophisticated but with a touch of whimsy. Elegant with a pop of the unexpected. Historical references and a touch of modern muscle. It’s interior designer ‘s own Manhattan apartment.
My friend Roseline sent me a message the other day that her friend’s mom passed away suddenly and her beautiful farmhouse in The Netherlands has been put up for sale. Built around 1910 on the border of the towns of Knegsel and Veldhoven, it has been renovated and rebuilt several times over the years yet still maintains a time-worn look and appears to have been given a bit of an ethnic facelift recently. This home is absolutely stunning and what a dream it would be to put my mark on such a space. Listing details can be found .
