English Country Homes Interiors

My dearest friends, as you might guess, our holidays are over! Back to work again! I didn’t read or commented many blogs the passed weeks. but I am back now!

I am working on a few projects and I am always searching for images which are inspirational to start sketching the future projects.

Certainly this first week after holidays I could use some help to be back in the running. And the internet is the most wonderful resource for inspiration,isn’t it?

One of the projects I am working on is preparing a design for a living room in a Flemish cottage with English design styled influences.

So nothing better than googling ‘English country homes’.

I came across some beautiful houses and in particular gorgeous antique wood paneling. Although our company is making new constructed paneling, the antique woodpaneling is always the best inspiration source for examples of construction, wood staining and mouldings.

I would love to show you some of my finds. I really love the look of these well-worn interiors.
