19 -CENTURY SWING MIRROR
I find that sellingantiques.co.uk is such an amazing resource for stylish pieces. I am currently working on a men’s dressingroom project and I think this charmingly simple design will work really well in the Edwardian room, which has dark-brown marble and wood finishes.
SIX-ARM ‘OAK BRANCH’ CHANDELIER
This classic, antique-style chandelier would work amazingly in my country home. The house was once owned by the Duke of Wellington, whose oak-leaf symbol features heavily in the cornicing around the building. I also love the idea of mighty oaks springing from tiny acorns – magical.
‘REEDED’ BALL KNOB
I adore the classic simplicity of these elegant knobs, and though they are normally used for cabinets, I will be using them on the window shutters of a Regency house, to match the door knobs that are already there.
