This home in London shows just how well an eclectic modern meets traditional look can work. Large rooms with ample light, soaring ceilings and white washed floors form the canvas for splashes of colour and a seemingly ad hoc collection of furniture styles.

The thoroughly eclectic furniture ranges from semi-industrial to mid century, IKEA and fine antiques. Added to the mix are bright patterned textiles, crystal chandeliers and walls with original crumbling texture or painted hues.

On paper it doesn’t sound like it would work, but it definitely does, in a way that possibly only the English could pull off.
