Delve into historyThe art of tapestry is reinvented in this scheme. What could be a fusty family heirloom in some hands is given a fresh context with a grey backdrop, industrial lighting and a rough-hewn bench, which all work in harmony with the tones of the tapestry. An ancient craft is reworked for the present, yet still does the same job as in previous centuries – adding warmth and texture to walls.

‘I wanted to mix antiques and modern furnishings to achieve a slightly more current look,’ says Henriette. The kitchen showcases her eclectic style to a T, with the antique tapestry and French armchairs happily coexisting with industrial-style pendant lights from Maisons du Monde. Because of the kitchen’s vast scale, Henriette had the table and benches made to fit the space, creating a beautiful, relaxed dining area where the whole family can gather. ‘We spend a lot of time with the children here, so chandeliers didn’t seem right. I wanted it to feel more relevant and a bit younger,’ she explains.See ways to warm up elegant greys
