Page 82-88: MASTER BEDROOM. Kit Kemp decorated the master bedroom using Chelsea Textiles hand-embroidered "Maria Sibylla" fabric as bed curtains, pelmet, bedcover, headboard, cushions and window treatment to ravishing effect.

Page 132: DRESSED TO IMPRESS. Chimney alcoves are ideal areas to carve out a space for reading or writing, and can make the most of an otherwise underused area. Find a small writing table that fits snugly between the walls – it doesn’t have to be very deep – then install open shelves up to the ceiling. Featuring Gustavian hand carved and hand painted table by Chelsea Textiles.
