Loving this classic style...

These gorgeous images are from the latest edition of House Beautiful which was a wonderful read this month. I love the black and white entry way of this classic beauty! Lots of white paint with black accents and timber...add a few decorative pieces and a great lantern...voila...a wonderful entry.

Mixing some of my favourite pieces...a chinois feature chair, cross stools and great fabrics. Gives this room an updated look on a traditional style. I always love being surrounded by books not to mention they add both decoration and along with the different textures it all works together to give interest to this neutral living room.

Just arrived here (I'm totally new here) and it's lovely here!
I'm also a lover of books and being surrounded by them. It comforts me and it brings style to a room. Loving the lamp in the hallway on the first picture! :)
Thanks for sharing!
Love, Inge x

Thank you for your tips about putting a modern spin on a traditional look. Some could find them easy to apply to their own home.
