GDL; looks like British Colonial. This is obviously a contemporary take on that but that is most certainly colonial. Quite typical of what you'd find in South Africa or Kenya. +1, there's also some French/Italian influences in the antique stuff. There's a lot of colonial style in there, I completely agree (hence my reference to LK). But the space is a minimalist white (hence my reference to Space Odyssey) with steel beams and full height window doors. Also the kitchen is an industrial/barnyard mix. It's the white halo as background to this interesting mix that makes it a true success IMO. I've always been a fan of mixing styles and periods, so this one just does it for me. Lucky - this looks like a desk that you'll be using as dining table? We used to have a similar one.
