Walls With Character

Acid green Eames molded plastic chairs pop against timeworn materials.

"One of my favourite aspects of older homes is the character they offer as a canvas, even before you place a single piece of furniture," says Jaime Derringer, editor and writer behind the modern Design Milk blog. "These cracked and peeling walls and mouldings are the perfect backdrop for the modern furniture and colour palette. It's a simple, inviting area to enjoy morning coffee and newspapers — or design blogs!"
