Downton Abbey? Not quite, but a dream house

By silkinteriors, Dec 7 2015 05:13AM

Paul always brings me home a copy of the Wealden Times each month, as it's full of lovely inspiration and beautiful homes. A highly recommended read, especially if you are looking for anything stylish for your home - you'll find plenty of ideas that you can adapt.

The December 2015 issue came home, and I looked at the front cover, a rather dark one, featuring lots of wood panels and a lovely wooden table. I thought it looked vaguely familiar, but without paying attention too much.

It was only when I flicked through later on over a cup of coffee that I realised that it was from one of the homes featured inside, and it was a home that I had been to. Yes, one of my clients, the rather glamourous and lovely couple Becky and Jamie Gunning, had opened their home to be featured.

You may remember, if you have been following my Facebook page a while now, that I posted a photo of a bedroom where I had made curtains and a pelmet. It was a lovely grey with panelling to the side. Well it was this house, and you can see the whole article, with photos of most of the house, by clicking here.

The Gunnings have been clients for a while now, having done work for their previous house too. But having seen the pictures from the Wealden Times, I know how much hard work that has gone into their new house.

As described in the article, it really is a wonderful setting, and the house is just superb. Please take a moment to read all about it. And I hope they need some more work soon - I just love to go and measure up in beautiful houses.
