Synopsis

Old House New Home Stylish Modern Living in a Period Setting by Ros Byam Shaw

How do you show off the best features of a home built for another age, while adapting it for modern living? In Old House New Home, Ros Byam Shaw looks at the many different ways we can furnish and arrange an old building to suit today's needs, whether it is a terraced townhouse or a converted factory. Exploring properties as diverse as a small Victorian townhouse and a former country dairy, she reveals how the design of each home has been reinvented for the 21st century. The book is divided into a series of key styles: 'Period Piece', 'Urban Chic', 'Rustic', 'Recycled Spaces' and 'Country House'. Each section includes ideas for furniture, lighting, fabrics, colours and finishing touches appropriate for the particular style of interior.
