A classical British-style home interior

We didn’t really pay much attention to it until now, but the British style is full of elegant surprises.

These are typical British-style homes. One of them is a beautiful flat located in North London and it seems to feature all the characteristics of this style. The overall impression is that there’s a perpetual mix of old and new. Even a contemporary British home will have some vintage accents. That’s because tradition is very important. This flat combines modernist pieces with antique Chesterfields and the result is a balanced mix and a chic décor.
