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.

Where do you find inspiration for decorating your home?

Inspiration -- in books about English country decorating, and about classic decorators such as John Fowler, Nancy Lancaster, Roger Banks-Pye, Sister Parrish, Bunny Williams.

How do vintage things play a role in your home?

I collect many vintage items, including monogrammed silver plated flatware, gravy boats, transferware, antique books and milk glass.

Any advice on creating your look?

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.


Thank you Mary for sharing your home with us. Visit Mary at Little Red House as well as her photography shop Dear Little Red House.
