Debate: Modern Luxury or Classic Country Chic?

I've always had a particular style when it comes to interior design, I'm classic with a twist (which might come from my background working for Paul Smith, as this mantra screams from his designs).  So, classic and simple, along with a quirk and I'm happy.  

However, in the last few months I've hit an unexpected cross roads in my design life, where I am beginning to be divided between classic country chic styling and modern simplicity.  Now, I live in a listed property but this doesn't mean I can't delve in to my inner modernista does it?  

Traditional or forward thinking...what's your style?  

I'm intrigued to know what you think about today's 'v's'.  

What's your style?  

What's your style?
I've decided not to stick to one camp, and instead blend both styles in to my home.

This gorgeous sitting room blends both styles beautifully with traditional features and classic lighting choices, but with a modern colour palette and plush fabrics.  

This classic country style kitchen has modern twists with its lighting options and furniture.

This stunning bathroom blends contemporary and classic perfectly.  

Contemporary artwork blends the two styles.

Love the ghost chair for a splash of contemporary living!  In fact I've just bought this chair for my study and I love it.

Again, contemporary artwork adds a pop.

So, what camp do you belong to?
