All Eyes Upon The United Kingdom

As the coverage of the Royal Nuptials this coming Friday comes to a frenzied peak, I'm reminded of one of my favorite interiors from a different part of The Kingdom (but Royal nonetheless).  The Scottish farmhouse of model Stella Tennant, a grand daughter of the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, other wise known as the youngest Mitford Sister.  A fascinating family to say the very least... As to these spaces, I love how the farm house sensibilities mix so beautifully with the regal architecture here.

  25. I've seen this and love it for the reasons you mentioned. My two favorite elements, lots of sun with gorgeous windows minus window treatments; and the teepee! My son has one, but he actually has turned something simple into something dangerous. He likes to climb to the top of the teepee and try to sit where all the bamboo sticks come together.
