Richborne Terrace, Vauxhall, London, SW8

Chepstow Crescent, Notting Hill

But these places would have all lost their original interiors long ago. And oftentimes one is renovating to replace work done in the 1950s-70s, which like most things from that era was truly awful.
I mean, it all depends upon the interior. Georgian-era decor tended toward painted woodwork, and is thus appropriate for a Georgian-era home.

Painting the woodwork in an Arts and Crafts or Tudor-style home is another thing entirely.

I mean, not a super old home, but look at this house. Are you seriously telling me it would be better if the woodwork was painted or the interior "modernized?" (This home is very similar to my home BTW).

Here's another, more expensive example. This is a little too heavy on the wallpaper for me. This is quite nice in the main rooms, though what they did with the kitchen is a bit jarring.
