Old House, New Home by Ros Byam Shaw
Most of us live in a building that is older than we are. How do you show off the best features of a home built for another age, while adapting it for modern living? In Old House New Home, acclaimed interiors writer Ros Byam Shaw looks at the many different ways we can furnish and arrange an old building to suit today's needs, whether it is a country cottage, a terraced townhouse or a converted factory. Exploring properties as diverse as a small Victorian townhouse and a former country dairy, she reveals how the design of each home has been reinvented for the 21st century. The book is divided into a series of key styles: 'Period Piece', 'Urban Chic', 'Rustic', 'Recycled Spaces' and 'Country House'.
