An English Style House

I absolutely adore the English Style interior decoration. I really love a selection of furniture that reflects a combination of elegance and simplicity.
In order to have a fairly successful effect when it comes to English Interior Design for decorating your house all you need is wood furniture and several traditional English collectibles.
The English collectibles may include: Old China, lead crystal, silver, framed mirrors, a clock, and an abundance of framed pictures.
Here are some ideas for how to achieve a comfy English style decor in your house. English style emphasizes coziness and elegance. Make sure to achieve a look that is pleasantly cluttered.

Things you'll need:

Soft Cushy sofas.
Coffee tables.
End tables.
Cushy Easy chairs.
Wood furniture.
Traditional China base lamps.
A-traditional-style secretary.
Plenty of smart, playful cushions.
Loosely draped curtains (you can use a simple white fabric).
Some books and strings of beads placed possibly on a coffee table.
A purplish red foot stool, I love this colour, or in any colour you prefer.
Silver candlesticks and China blue and white dishes.
Silver plated pieces.
I, personally, like the English country style which is a cute, relaxed and comfortable style. xx

I really don't like the trhow pillows with the pictures on them. If you really want a picture in the living room then buy a painting. It also creates a little too much variety and constrast of color for my comfort.
