Dinder House. A Georgian house for modern living
I confess. I am a history junkie, but I also love the ultra modern.
It takes real skill, in my opinion, to successfully combine the new with the old, to respect the beauty of history while understanding that we live very different lives to our ancestors.
Yet, this is what Ilse Crawford has pulled off at Dinder House, Somerset.
Originally built in 1801, this Georgian house is now a modern and vibrant home to Chris and Jo Mycock and their four young sons.
It takes an egoless designer, in my opinion, to create such a beautiful and functional space which is more concerned with how people live, than creating a monument to themselves with their client’s funds.
This is my dream house, or at least one of them, in that dream which involves me with a portfolio of beautiful homes across the globe.
