Georgian Meets Modern

Believe it or not this magnificent 1801 house in Somerset, England, was once a shoe company. It took four years and five architects to transform it from business offices into a modern family home for six. The interiors, by London designer Ilse Crawford, are truly astonishing. I'm specially enamored with the bold contrast she created by using super modern decor in such an Old World setting. She made a conscious effort not to fill all 40 rooms with tons of furniture that would interfere with the architecture. Her sense of design is flawless. I don't have words to express my fascination for this place... It's absolutely drool-worthy. If you want to learn more about the design of Dinder House click here.
