Author Grace Saunders takes us on a tour of her Victorian family home where tales of romance, travel and adventure are all part of the furniture
Throughout the house, mirrored furniture and twinkly chandeliers are counterbalanced with modern perspex and glass pieces. A gallery of family photographs and displays of one-off treasures add intimacy to the look. Grace collects vintage tea sets and cake stands, and they look wonderful displayed with other precious mementoes in her elegant glass-fronted armoires.
At the top of the first flight of stairs, on the half landing, is the study, where Grace wrote her first book, The Fabulous Mum’s Handbook (Arrow, £7.99). “The study has become Raphael’s nursery now,” says Grace. “I decided to leave the beautiful silver-and-white designer wallpaper, as it would have been a crime to cover it up, and the crystal chandelier stayed put too. So it’s not a boyish room, nor a girly one, it’s just a very, very stylish one. And I thought, well why shouldn’t a baby have a stylish bedroom!”
