Interior Design for Period Homes
“…these old buildings do not belong to us only; They have belonged to our forefathers, and they will
belong to our descendants unless we play them false. They are not in any sense our property,
to do as we like with. We are only trustees for those that come after us.”
- William Morris
Whether listed or unlisted, the architectural details and charming quirks of period properties make them unique and it can sometimes be overwhelming to make design decisions. It is very unusual to find a period house without any of the original details and at Louise Booyens Interiors, we understand that it can be difficult to decide what to keep, add or get rid of when working on a design scheme for your heritage home.
With a degree in Heritage Interior Design and a passion for historic interiors, Louise can provide a contemporary, updated design while always respecting the building's history. By working closely with you and using what you already have, she can help you make those difficult decisions while always respecting the building's history.
"I believe strongly that your period home shouldn't feel like a museum,
but rather include a good blend of period features, re-interpreted old furniture,
antique pieces, contemporary furniture and fittings... a tasteful mix of old and new."
