Delighted to introduce my latest sponsor Willow & Hall, makers of beautiful handmade sofas, sofa beds and mattresses, based in Wiltshire…their icon on the right takes you to their website.
For anyone who values quality and great design, these are for you…it is the fabric choices that I love, beautiful linens, cotton, wool and velvet in subtle, dusky, colours that are all easy to live with, but dramatic notes are available as well.
In a small apartment it is easy to make quality a priority: you can more easily afford really beautiful finishes, resulting in a jewel-like interior. Douglas photographed this tiny diamond of a studio in a converted Victorian school, in Edinburgh, beside Holyrood Park for 25 Beautiful homes magazine.
Originally the school secretaries office, the owners have renovated it and have left nothing out in terms of luxury and comfort. The kitchen has everything you need; there is a sumptuous bedroom tucked into an alcove, with an etched glass sliding door as a partition, separating it from an opulent living space, with easily enough space for a dining spot at the bay window.
I love the addition of the simple wooden panelling, a nod to the original period of the building, but painted in a chalky neutrals, the room has a nicely updated feel.
The Old School apartment is available to rent.
