Beautiful old French country house with intricate parquet floors and original hand rolled glass windowpanes. The room is pure Louis XV in style, with walls painted blue and decorated with chinoiserie decor, as are the beautifully painted shutters. The furniture, also Louis XV is simple lines, painted and gilded.
The wood-panelled library at Wardington Manor in Oxfordshire features a chintz sofa. Floral fabrics and motifs appear throughout the house, reflecting the passion of owner Bridget Elworthy, one half of garden design duo The Land Gardeners, whose new business venture into cut flowers is based at the manor.
