Whether it's a full house, a pair of curtains or finding the perfect paint colour, it's often a good idea to contact a professional or visit an interior design shop before decorating your home. Located on the Chatsworth Estate, Penrose Interiors has been creating beautiful upholstery and interiors for 29 years. Here, owner Alexandra Sheldon shares design tips from around the shop on how to update your home
This ornate silver mirror works beautifully as a focal feature. Weve used it together with a classic damask wallpaper and elegant handmade curtains with an attached valance and fine trimming
Create a soft, delicate feel by mixing subtle surfaces. This design combines crystal, nickel and faux flowers to add detail to a large stone mantelpiece.
Lighting is often underestimated in so many schemes. A new lampshade can immediately update the look of a room and there are some fantastic designs in both classic and contemporary styles. Or, why not opt for a bespoke lampshade, where the size, style and fabric can be tailored to suit your home?
Make a statement. This room setting combines a William Yeoward Godwyn table (featuring a hand carved fox head and polka dot inlay detail within the concealed drawer), teamed with a whimsical Ted Baker dinnerware collection. Afternoon tea in style!
