"Elegant and classy, you just adore period décor and style. You love the classics; subtle wallpaper, dark wood and rich colours.
You have a penchant for opulent fabrics and secretly covet a Steinway
piano for your living room. You search antiques fairs until you get the
perfect piece. At home, your tastes are high-class classics; game pie, roast beef and all the trimmings or a fillet of plaice."
Quirky and shabby...

But actually there is something much more fundamental which creates my Great British Home, and that is the food on the table, the company, the sound of chatter as we all tuck in and talk about anything and everything. It may not happen like this all the time but when it does, all of us sat about, the clatter of forks and spoons, sharing whatever is on the table, then it is the epitome of 'home' for me.
