THE COLOUR 'CORD' FROM FARROW AND BALL
Here are a couple of photographs of the sitting room showing the colour of the walls - am not too keen on the white radiator showing in one of the photos but you can at least see the contrast and the deep creamy colour shows up quite well - sort of like a dijon mustard but warmer and deeper... and it somehow just seems to 'work' especially with reds. (Actually maybe it just looks like bog standard Magnolia on second thoughts with my photography and the fact that outside it is beginning to get dark and the light is on too.... but I have tried - promise!)
The wing chair is such a treasured piece of furniture - I had it 'created' in Instanbul when Mr SE and I went on holiday there about 6 years ago... We went in to so many wonderful shops selling kilims and carpets and in one I asked whether they would be able to upholster a chair for me using a kilim.... Well, I picked out the kilim and sketched the shape of the chair I wanted and and after much bartering to and fro about the price it finally arrived back in UK a month after we returned from our holiday.
I was so delighted with the end result and it still gives me just as much pleasure to this day.
