There are some elements of English interiors that have influenced style the world over. The essential elements of this style evolved over a couple of hundred of years. The sofa, accompanied by chairs, arranged around a fireplace, collected treasures and art displayed, some music perhaps, lots of books, a window with lovely curtains over looking a garden, a mirror over the fireplace. It is comfortable, timeless, elegant and cultured. We all aspire to these elements in our lifestyles.
I visited a home this week which had all these elements, I was charmed and so delighted to see a home filled with all the elements that define English Style. I was so pleased to see a home that was not "styled" but is lived in, has evolved and is comfortable.
