This grand old dame looks quite like the one we ate breakfast in last Sunday. So beautiful...
The owners of this home collect asian art, and as you will see in the following pictures, this house is the perfect backdrop. They've managed to keep it looking like a home, rather than a museum which is not an easy feat considering all of the amazing art they have. I'm not sure I could live in it, but I certainly wouldn't mind it as a holiday house!
So tell me, which one do you prefer - the modern version, or this one?
