This Victorian terrace home in London is touted as industrial style, but I would argue that it's clearly got a mixed style vibe going on. You can see wonderful elements of country and industrial working together to create a comfortable and unique space. A simple color palette helps unite the spaces, and by sticking simply to two styles and mixing from there, it never look jumbled or like it's trying too hard.

In the kitchen we see a lot of traditional elements such as the cabinets, mixing with more industrial features such as the hanging lights.

Living Rooms

Using key features such as light fixtures or large pieces of furniture, you can easily show off your mix of old and new. The spareness of some of the modern pieces contrasts beautifully with the more intricate look of the antiques.

A Converted Barn in the Cotswolds

This gorgeous home in the Cotswold region of England is exactly what many of us imagine when we hear the term "converted barn". Derelict when it was purchased, it has been transformed into a charming, cozy, and stylish home. Beautiful converted barn in the Cotswolds. A wonderful mix of rustic and stylish pieces make this a cozy but stylish space.

The kitchen shines with a wooden worktop and concrete base, mixing with the cobble flooring and stone walls. Fun touches like the blue carboy on top of the hood and the cozy dog bed tucked under a shelf make this a unique space.
