English Cottage find out more

The classical, English interior is dominated by furniture made ​​from solid, dark wood, mainly walnut, mahogany, oak or redwood. Walls tend to be wood panelled too, sometimes only the bottom half. In traditional England, there was no shortage of high-ceilinged rooms, hence wood panelling with decorative onlays gave buildings an old-fashioned character. Symptomatic are walls decorated with extensive variations of textile wallpapers with floral patterns, significantly more frequently seen than matt painting. Thanks to a combination of faded and saturated colors this style evokes the right romantic atmosphere today. Heavy, opaque, richly draped curtains with tassels adorn typically British checkerboard windows. Floral designs and patterned motifs are a decorative feature on armchairs, sofas and beds, diamond shapes and mottled patterns abound on the covers of decorative cushions, crystal chandeliers, opulent Persian carpets, ornate candlesticks or porcelain teasetsfor taking „afternoon tea“.
