    Thank you, you're most welcome. We have a wonderful shop here in the UK that we are all very fond of as it has a wonderful reputation for quality and helpful staff. They have a good website and deliver internationally I believe. It's called John Lewis; do have a look they do so many lovely things. x

    Where can I find this furniture in Eastern United States?

    We bought the sofa from a chain called Marks and Spencer,
    I customised the furniture by making loose covers which I think you call slipcovers, myself. I like to make things if I can't find it in a store. The armchairs were by two companies, one called DURESTA which is a premium brand of furniture and covered it myself in white linen fabric.

    If I can be of further help, please come back to me.

    Hello... I Love it!, I cheat tho. I use rugs and blankets most days so we can use it comfortably and then i don't end up screaming at everyone if they spill their drinks.... Then on days I feel abondoned, we take everything off and just enjoy the light and airy feel that only linen in white brings. Why linen? It gives a matt quality that you just can't get any other way. Cotton is good, but linen, it's special. It washes superbly too. Plus it's a natural and ancient fabric. What's not to love! Good luck, and let me know if you go ahead. x

    Hello Sanpow, they are painted a brilliant white. But remember, rooms get the best effects when the light conditions are taken into account. It's boring but true, that each room will take the same colour of paint and have a different effect. For example, this room is south facing, and aspects that will effect the white walls include the fact that I have chosen a white linen covering on furniture and a shiny floor finish which reflects light. If I can be of more use, let me know. Mrs Cartwright

    The curtain rod is from a Scottish supplier, which I can order for you if you need. Let me know if I can be of further help. x

        The living room is at the back of the house, where the kitchen used to be. The couple had the home extended before moving in. “We got rid of the nasty lean-to and had the old kitchen area rebuilt and extended, with bifold doors onto the garden. In summer the doors just disappear; it’s wonderful,” Denny says. She had her sofa re-covered in white linen. “If you have decent furniture, just have it re-covered,” she says. “It gets squishier and lovelier as time goes on, and you become fonder and fonder of it.” Denny made all of the cushions herself, to make sure they were unique. “I like it that no one has the same designs,” she says.Sofa, armchairs: Derwent; curtain fabric, John Lewis

        a little too kitchen- no rust ruffles but I like how it's cozy and the fabrics tie in

        Like the window treatments--not too bold, but do not like the skirts around the furniture
