House & Garden shot the collection in situ at the house. Here in the bedroom ‘The Original Orangery Stepped’ bedside table, works beautifully with the vertical floral border on the wall (a lovely decorative idea for older houses) and antique chintz bed canopy.

This is the first time that one of her own houses has featured here. ‘After all these years,’ she says with a laugh, ‘I thought, well, why not?’
