Please help me in welcoming our newest guest for our My Vintage Pad Home Tours, Mrs. Mary Carroll photographer and blogger from New Jersey.
Can you tell us a little bit about each room that your share with us and your most favorite details?
In the library (above photo), I like the sofa in front of the big window. The morning sun streams in there, and it is a marvelous place to sit with morning tea.
In the kitchen, I like the painted cabinets, especially the plate rack.
Inspiration -- in books about English country decorating, and about classic decorators such as John Fowler, Nancy Lancaster, Roger Banks-Pye, Sister Parrish, Bunny Williams.
I collect many vintage items, including monogrammed silver plated flatware, gravy boats, transferware, antique books and milk glass.
Choose classic upholstered pieces. Add somewhere to put up your feet, a warm throw and beautiful old tables and lamps. Find accessories you love in thrift stores, flea markets and antique shops.
