BRINGING NEW LIFE TO THE DINDER HOUSE

In a historic Georgian in Somerset, England, a family of six bring new life to an old building. The Dinder house was built for Rev. William Somerville in 1801, then was later turned to commercial use by a shoe company, before the Mycock family bought the house and with the help of designer Ilse Crawford, invigorated the traditional bones with contemporary energy. The Mycock’s originally fell in love with the house’s proportions, and the light the large windows let through. They celebrated these features of the house with minimalism and spare decoration. My favorite room is the one below — it both reflects and complements the large views outside.

It’s a joyful re-imagining of an old house made new for family life. Though luxurious, the attention to use of space is especially interesting!
