Modern Retro: From Rustic to Urban, Classic to Colourful,
these creme-tastic images from interior design
specialist Caroline Clifton-Mogg can be seen in

I love this Londoner’s eye!
A locker in the dining room!
Clifton-Mogg chronicles a breathtaking
French country project:
Modern Country: Inspiring interiors for contemporary country living
No traces of Americana ‘country’ here in this volume!
No modern take on milk cans or plaques reading
some version of “Bless this Mess.”
BTW, why on earth would anyone ever wish to announce their untidy leanings?
Instead, beauty, lightness, inspiration, and
rural sophistication reign beautifully.
“Throughout the book we can see the inventive
and imaginative ideas and solutions that home owners
have employed to make their home, large or small,
worth living in,” (Caroline Clifton-Mogg)
I am devouring Modern Country: Inspiring interiors for contemporary country living as I
dream of barns, beams, imaginative retreats,
and joie de vivre in the natural countryside.
Does modern European country style move you?
Peace to you right where you are.
