Mixing old and new in a London home

I found this 5 bedroom West London terrace home on Shoot Factory and was instantly intrigued. The house has recently been extended to include a super sleek concrete inspired kitchen and dining space. A truly unique space – the floor, kitchen island, dining table, and seating is all constructed from almost seamless concrete. Finished with grey elm joinery, the kitchen-come-living space is beautifully simplistic and light. The exterior of the extension is made up of large expanse of glass and clad in rusted corten steel. The front sitting room provides a more traditional feel with bay window, herringbone flooring, original cornicing and ceiling rose, and beautiful marble fireplace. I feel like the concrete in the kitchen is a bit overkill....maybe if it didn't run partially up the walls too and the bench at the built-in table was made of wood instead. Regardless the cabinets are gorgeous and I love the subtle tile backsplash. I have also fallen head over heels for that grey subway tile in the bathroom and may try and find something similar for my bathroom reno (likely cheaper than the marble subway tile I was thinking of using).
