Windows on the world.
Little windows pierce the massive walls of this converted Martello Tower in the East of England. Each window frames the seascape beyond: a perfect antidote to city chaos. Here, the run of steps exaggerates the perspective and provides a convenient display area for a few simple objects.
Splendour in the suburbs.

Less than an hour outside New York city, this early twentieth-century house has a definite rustic air. It is surrounded by trees and enough space in which to enjoy an outdoor life. Pastel 1920s junk-shop furniture and fabric are refreshing and reflect the general mood of the house presents given to you by affectionate friends over the last few decades; a look that takes its cue from a spectrum of the good things in life, spanning a kaleidoscope of pattern, colour, scent and texture. At the other extreme, it can embrace the puritan and pared-down simplicity of the contemplative’s cell: stone floor, solid furniture and humble fabrics. Each aspect expresses character and a part of the natural world outside.
A Sense of History.
A country look implies a sense of care and. History. Furniture is not necessarily new, but it is cleaned and polished and loved – a vast, scrubbed kitchen table, the scene of many winter evening feasts of scones and crumpets, or an old sagging Chesterfield that has borne three generations of wriggling children and been re-covered countless times. These are the pieces that have earned a permanent place in family mythology and affections and sit comfortably in your home.
The country look has to do with authenticity, with a preference for the quirky and un-labour-saving genuine article, although this should be pursued within reason: only a fanatical purist.
