Once upon a time in an attic room at Stocksfield Hall there lived a right hand corner. When we first arrived Rachel chose the corner and the room that surrounded it for her own. She created a champagne and cream coloured bedroom. The walls were stencilled with a diamond pattern. In the corner a chaise lounge nestled under skylight and lamp to make a perfect reading nook.
The room was featured in a couple of home interest magazines and in the book The Stencilled Home.
The chaise was repositioned and Rachel redecorated with hot pink walls and a monogram stencil, the corner along with the rest of her rooms was featured in several international editions of Elle Deco Magazine.
and then came deep blue walls and turquoise stencilling.
The gothic patterned walls stayed the same for years and her furnishings and collections changed around it. This is why I am calling the post Four and a Half Looks rather than 'One Wall,Five Looks' .
This is the half look, it's one of my favourite pictures of the room.
Rachel got married and moved away. The chaise went with her. The room is now decorated for guests and features a Japanese style pattern of waves stencilled under a giant golden carp.
Once again the right hand corner has become a reading nook. Do you have a favourite amongst the four and a half looks?
