    @ Sue Smith : It is a bit green. There are so many factors, perhaps its the camera, light, compression, your screen ... hard to say, its best seen in reality on a smaller area before you go ahead and paint a whole room.

    ok, thank you - in any case, it looks wonderful - I may add it to my sample list - though our floors are a much darker/warm wood which I think might not work so well with the green tone

Mix old with newCanham has decorated throughout with pale paint colours and contemporary furniture, but she has also made sure to weave in a few vintage pieces such as this characterful chair in the living room. “There are various antiques and vintage finds dotted throughout the property to add character,” she says.The reclaimed oak parquet flooring also adds character (and warmth), and is one of Canham’s favourite things about her finished home. To create a similar feel in your home, scout for vintage pieces at antiques fairs or try online auction sites to discover little gems.

Draw the eyeUse vignettes to take your gaze beyond the confines of the room. Here, a simple round table placed in the window requires only a plant and some books to create a focus and draw your eye to the natural light coming from outside.
