England Envy

I had an entirely different post planned for today, but I fell in love with an image. A bed, in the manor home of Nancy Cutting, covered in blue and white Colefax and Fowler chintz from the 1970’s. Upon researching this house, I discovered that this entire estate is chicly refined and, pardon the pun, well mannered.  It is absolutely charming from room to room. Full of blue and white, fresh cut flowers, and stunning antiques.

It makes me wish I could waste my summer away sleeping, reading, and relaxing in this timeless estate. However, I have other plans for the summer (stay tuned)….

I had to start with the bedroom first (which has been relocated since the pictures were taken below).  I could literally look at this all day and be just as happy as can be!

Exactly how  you expect an English house to be… wood paneled, full of florals, and lovely antiques.

A perfect place for a rainy summer afternoon. A great room for cocktails and entertaining.

Look at the urns of boxwood upon the edge of the garden. English gardens are so effortlessly chic.

A door to the garden. I love how everything isn’t overly fussed over, the black and white is a fun touch.
