 Taking shelter from the dreary Scottish winter in my Victorian apartment


Taking shelter from the dreary Scottish winter in my Victorian apartment.

The wall colour, the window, the yellow arm chair and the rug is an amazing combo. It looks like it is from a House and Home magazine. Well done.

The paint is a colour match for Farrow & Ball's Oval Room Blue.

The bookcase is called an Edinburgh press and is an original Victorian feature. When tenement buildings like this were being built, the builders created doorways between adjacent blocks so that they could move between the blocks without having to go outside. When the buildings were finished the openings were sealed, and many of the alcoves became bookshelves.

Coffee table is from Next, sofa from sofa.com and chair is from Wayfair.

The mirror is Stockholm mirror from IKEA.

The floor is the original Victorian pine floor. Had it sanded and varnished with a matt varnish.
