Old Meets New
Interior designer Edward Bulmer and his wife Emma’s beautiful Grade II listed Queen Anne manor house was bought in a state of ‘benign neglect’ which they have sensitively and imaginatively transformed, mixing period detailing and furniture with modern pieces designed by Edward. The mix of old and new is particularly effective in the living room, with its dark panelled walls punctuated by richly coloured art and patterned fabrics. Mongolian sheepskins add a layer of inviting texture.
