Remodelista is a great source for scoping out the current craze of Nordic Rustic interior decor, and we really love this little inn that was recently featured.
It's called The Crown, and it's located in Amersham near London, England. It provides the best of intimate, cozy old-English charm, but ditches the asthma- inducing mustiness of many such places, and instead infuses the interiors with some of that Scandinavian-inspired simplicity (and, in fact, there is also a great British tradition for simple modernism, and according to the article most of the pieces used are British).
The modern pieces, so thoughtfully used, remain quite true to the inherent warmth and character of the structure, yet are clean and fresh feeling. The end result seems a more "opened-up" place, and what might be expected to be a stark contrast between old and new is in fact quite a seamless blend.
As if any of us needed another excuse for a London shopping expedition!
