With the homes’ idyllic settings, this collection presents inspirational ideals of English country style certain to fascinate and delight.

During the decoration of the house Penelope spent a lot of time picking up bargains, such as the leather desk chair in the study, from Station Mill Antiques in Chipping Norton. The sofa is covered in jute which Robin concedes is a bit impractical, but she loves the natural texture. One enters the house into a tall-ceilinged reception hall where a Spanish metal chandelier hangs over a large French mirrored-top table from the 1960s.

The collage on the wall features a leather notebook found in South Africa, which she mounted on an antique Japanese watercolour of a kimono design.

I wanted something authentic and in its original state, rather than something that had been modernised.
