CLASSIC: Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill

From her book "The Life of the House"

Recently, I was perusing this beautiful book, by Lady Henrietta Spencer Churchill, called The Life of the House.  The image shown above, is from the house in Dallas Texas that Lady Spencer Churchill decorated, I found it very interesting, especially the combination of cornflower blue with the lemon yellow.  I was intrigued by the pair of Chinese low tables with cloisonné inlaid panels -something that my mentor Thomas Britt would have used.  This is a very cheerful sitting room, something that the English are brilliant at doing.  Enjoy!  DF
