Hello, The table is a vintage find, which we had hand painted to fill the brief of a lightness above all. Take time to look on any site, such as Ebay, to find similar, and paint with several coats of either emulsion [flat] or silk paint, then wax to protect. Let me know if you need anything further. x

Can you tell me which item you are meaning please? If it is the grate ironwork, it is a cast iron grate bought from a junkyard and painted white. This will blacken in use in winter, but during summr when not in use, it looks fab filled with clean logs or flowers or cones.... or candles as below....Hope that helps, please come back if it isn't what you were after?

It's a clear lacquer. BUT, I bought the floor with the lacquer on brand new, so it hasn't been revarnished yet. The wood is a French oak. Sorry I couldn't help more...

Hello there, I had these made and when they got tired looking, I refreshed them with some fabric I fell in love with. It's a creative way to renew blinds and you can choose whichever fabric you fall in love with... x

You can buy throws like this anywhere. Ebay is great, as are the really authentic tartan or Scottish shops online. But to help you search this is a modern Stewart dress tartan.

See link below the Scotland Shop... http://www.scotlandshop.com/tartan.aspx/Stewart-Blue-Dress-Tartan-11902

When the couple bought it, the house had uneven floors that let drafts through. So they took up the boards, had the floors fixed to block drafts, then had the old boards reinstalled and a new oak floor, which they bought from a local wood supplier, laid on top. “It does wonders for insulation, and the gloss reflects light and gives you a sense of space,” Denny says. She found the pedestal dining table on eBay and painted it white. Dining chairs: Bramley, Laura Ashley; blind fabric: Runaway Coast; clock: Thomas Kent
