Rather than kit the house out from scratch, existing pieces were modified so that they work in their new surroundings.
Get the look: The chairs are upholstered with Romo fabrics and, on the seat back, a Tissus d’Hélène design. The table was found in a local antiques shop. The rug was brought back from India. The curtains are made in Hedgehog linen-mix in Duck Egg Brown by Neisha Crosland at Turnell & Gigon.
The fabulous chairs, which were a gift, have been upholstered in a zingy red and blue fabric.
The plate rack holds china by Astier de Villatte – a new piece is added to the collection each year. The lights on either side of the rack are bespoke.
Get the look: The lamp shades are from Oka. The armchair is upholstered in a Manuel Canovas fabric.
The study-come-dressing room on the top floor is complete with bespoke shelving, which flanks a simple desk.
Get the look: The desk is from Ikea. The chair is by Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam. The wall light is from Holly’s House. The blind is made in Jim Thompson’s Gemstone cotton in Emerald, available in the UK through Fox Linton.
Here, the same wallpaper is used as in the living room, but in a different shade. It gives a little bit of depth without interfering with the overall scheme. The headboard is made from two old doors that were found at a tip.
