The 1860s Italianate house of a historian and collector of Scandinavian art and design
Here, the simplest ingredients have made a calm but sophisticated room. Four Forties Swedish mirrors, used in the hall of the owner’s previous London house (featured in the October 2010 issue of House & Garden) are hung on either side of the bed, which has a headboard and matching lampshades covered in a handsome Turkish striped silk, handwoven on a narrow loom. There is a yellow mid-century rug by Märta Måås-Fjetterström beside the bed, with an antique Beni Ourain rug and a Howe ‘Greyhound Sofa’ sitting at its foot.
