Interior design ideas: English cosy

I want to start today’s post by thanking Sofia from hildashem.se for mentioning inredningsvis in her super nice web magazine. An amazingly talentet girl with a sense of beauty in everyday life…check out the web magazine on her blog :)

Today I have a feeling and that feeling is classic English cozy. I’m whisked away to the TV series Midsommer Murders and Agatha Christie’s famous TV classics. Rooms filled with class and style, riding horses along beautiful forest trails and a sherry in front of an open crackling fire.

The English interior style at its best is rich reddish brown mahogany and a beautiful English classic armchair – a must for true Winter cosiness. English is also tea in a blue-flowered pot, small-flowered wallpaper and curtains with tie-backs, a horde of small tables where the fabric reaches down to the floor, an oriental mat and shelves full of decorated porcelain.

It should be crowded and a little dark, you should sink down where you sit. There should be exposed beams in the ceiling and everything should be covered in a light lavender scent. That’s the English cozy way, according to both the English and the Swedes :)

What do you think about the English style…lovely or just old and dusty??

Have a nice day, sweeties!

LOVE M

    Vackra bilder som verkligen ger en brittisk känsla! Tyvärr får man se alltför många hus med urusel inredning i Property Ladder, Home and Away osv osv, jag börjar undra var det eg ser ut som på dina bilder??

    Kram!!

    Ah, if only more of our houses were like this :) it’s funny, a lot of us just want our décor to look more glossy and sleek. But I love old-fashioned houses – I grew up in a village with lots of cottages and bungalows with worn wood (in strange places – we had bedroom and kitchen doors like in stables). I love looking at the libraries in stately homes for that reason.

      Yes old houses are the best I myself live in one:) They have a air of history that modern buildings dont have.

    I definitely can get into all of this :)
    Some of it is a little bit different than my taste, but overall I love the shabby chic vibe of it all.
    There’s something so beautiful and timeless about that!
