I thought I'd post an antidote to all the embroidery and flowers that have been going on here recently! Here is my inspiration for the hall of Daviot House - a room in the Palace of Culross,, Fife, in Scotland. I have finally decided to to a stone floor, as that would be the most authentic, but I think this room certainly has the ambiance that I am looking for.
A couple of open arm chairs that I will upholster in red silk (and, yes, probably embroider too! : D ), complemented by an occassional table and joint stool from McQueenies.
I will definitely need a pewter candelabra (Warwick) ....
a hurricane lamp (Glasscraft) .....
And if I were really, really lucky, a cabinet from Masters.
So hopefully the New Year will see good progress on the hall!
Have a very Happy Hogmanay,
