A fascinating peek into a unique property.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nicky Haslam's Folly de Grandeur: Romance and revival in an English country house (Hardcover)
As a great fan of John Fowler's interiors, I have always been fascinated by this property and this book and does not disappoint. The rooms are quite small and it is wonderful to see how small rooms can still look wonderful. Some of the decoration is a little dated, but on the whole it has stood the test of time. I love the fact the kitchen is tiny, with a separate dining room, rather than it being knocked into one to create the big open plan room that is so fashionable at the moment - admiration to Nicky Haslam for keeping things as they are. I also like the fact that amongst the few fine antiques there are lots of cheap decorative things intermingled, that combine to creative rooms with great character.
