Where We Sleep

A Haven at the top of the house. The window seat has a huge soft leather cushion sitting over a storage cupboard, so handy for storing bedding. This is a very light room and faces onto a main road but double glazing would make the room to hot in the summer. My solution to this was to install very thick oak shutter, which are mirrored on the inside. This keeps the traffic noise to a minimum and blocks out the light at the same time without trapping heat in during the day.

I decided to keep everything white to give the dark furniture a bold contrast.

The pile of orange boxes are a collection of Hermes boxes I have acquired over the years when buying their fabulous scarves whenever I am in Paris.
