Designer nous meets Scandi cool in this seaside haven that harks back to yesteryear – thank you, shag pile and antique armoire. “Thoughtful architecture blends contemporary with classic here,” says HB content producer Diana, who is a fan, in particular, of the white windows that frame that autumnal view.
The key to the room’s charm is the blend of old (dark-wood antique side cabinet) and new (light-wood coffee table). A leather Arne Jacobsen ‘Egg’ chair (available from Cult) adds sex appeal, as does the retro-style rug. Temple & Webster has a selection – our pick is the ‘Metro Lights ShagRug’ in Champagne.
