Today I am showing you my sitting room. This is where the sofa is in my header. I love the smaller size of this room. It makes if feel cozier and more intimate even though it has a soaring ceiling in it. I call this room my English country equestrian Ralph Lauren room. You will see why when you see the photos. The wall that the red sofa is against is painted a deeper warmer color than the other three walls. Eventually I will paint all the walls. I have always been fond of hunt scenes. I think it is because I have always had a love of horses. Growing up I always dreamed of owning one, but that day never came. So I have filled this room with hunt scenes, antlers, Staffordshire figurines, pottery and books to give that English country feeling. I have also used several different fabrics and animal prints to add to the English country feel. So come on in and sit a spell and I will go fix us a spot of tea and some crumpets. Don't you feel all English now? The English love their afternoon tea.
This is the view coming in the black double french doors.
Scored these used riding boots on ebay.

Good spot for reading or recline it on back and take a nap.

Thank you, Bailey.
