English Proper

Oh, you are going to LOVE this one! I read and follow all sorts of design peeps. Once I start reading, one thing often leads to another and I recently came across the most charming English country home. Plenty of boxwood, softly printed patterns, and modern finishes allow this home to maintain it’s character without sacrificing convenience. This 17th century home is full of the classic style of design that will always be in season, just like a beautiful boxwood.

Have a little hump day fun with this pretty home designed by Melissa Wyndham. All photos from House and Garden UK.

Could you imagine anything more heavenly? Ivy covered brick and sprinkling of boxwood.  House and Garden UK 3

So very English and chicly comfortable. I love the subtle green walls and floral patterned curtains.

Doesn’t that sofa look incredibly comfortable?!  Also, you can’t help but adore that rug. Ahhh!

A sweet country tabletop. I can’t get enough of those curtains. A great mix of greens and blues.

There is so much simplicity in traditional design, yet if done correctly, it can be highly effective! This is the ideal example!

This wallpaper is everything, not to mention the marbling on the pedestal sink. House and Garden UK 8

I could be very content in a bedroom like this. I can guarantee this room will still be effective in 100 years.

  1. It’s timeless! That bedroom with the desk in front of the window and the blue drapes could have been designed in 1930 or today.
