House tour: Modern eclectic family home
Grey and white den
The crisp white brick fireplace surround, built-ins and original wood panelling set off the dark grey on the upper walls of the den. Leaded glass cabinetry doors are another original feature. The antique chandelier was picked up at a London flea market.
Pale orange sofa
A contemporary pale orange sofa pops against the white panelling and dark grey walls. The Mid-Century Modern desk was a lucky find at an antiques store a few years back, as was the Tolix chair.
Save vs. splurge: armchair
Going vintage is often a more economical decorating idea than buying brand new, says Sophie.
