It's time for another excerpt from The English Home Magazine. I still haven't gotten a new issue, so I'm struggling to show you something really fab.
This is a story of an American woman from New England who met a man from Sri Lanka while both of them were working in the banking business in London. They met cute, dated, and got married. Eventually they bought a townhouse in Kensington.
The ground floor is dedicated to using things from the husband's country, along with other African and Asian artifacts.
The upstairs rooms reflect the wife's New England upbringing.
The master bedroom is a blend of New England and Sri Lankan style. I love the shawls hanging on a ladder, and the pale paisley curtain fabric. The spectacular bed is done by Simon Horn.
The upstairs hall features a Dutch pine table with its delftware top top carefully restored. You can see the tongue and groove panelling in the bathroom evoking New England style.
