|Vignette by Rosa Bernal via Nuevo Estilo|
In honor of our little milestone yesterday, I decided to revisit a topic that is responsible for the most viewed post on my blog: English country interiors. Since this seems to be a favored subject (and I want to pay tribute to all my wonderful viewers out there), I thought I must give you more of what you want!

Classic English style: warm and rich with layers of texture and color.
|Vignette by Charles Faudree|
Although Faudree is better known for his French-inspired interiors, I think there is a bit of the English politeness and subtle sophistication in this pretty little vignette.

I love this room. It is sensible and slightly masculine, and has the most wonderful English touches (such as the portraits and that fabulous Regency-style chair in the foreground)!

Isn't this picture so beautiful in its simplicity, with its marble-top console, rustic basket, and antique hall chairs?

What a cozy space. I love the long ottoman by the fireplace and the way the mantel is set with such delicate pieces.

"The British brought back many different cultural influences from their colonies, so we didn't just stick to one type of furniture or style", says Minton. I think this design objective is what creates that layered look present in so many English-style interiors.
