Modern Interiors in Ancient Homes

By Decorology @decorology_blog
I LOVE old, historic homes. The character, the charm, the history, and the quality of craftsmanship far surpass the cookie cutter houses most of us have to settle for. What I also love is to see how people of today integrate modern technologies and furnishings into houses built long before those technologies were ever dreamed up.

What do you think? Do you live in an old home? What do you love about it? If you don't, would you like to live in one?
