Interior designer Erik Karlsen, founder of Jane Churchill fabric and wallpaper brand, which is now a part of Colefax and Fowler design, renovated and built on to this 1900 home in Essex. The country home exhibits Karlsn's taste in the past and present.

Karlsen worked with hard wood floors, folding floor-to-ceiling doors and windows, and french doors, turning this Georgian-style home into a beautiful and hospitable home. Karlsen wanted to stay true to the original home, but opened the areas up, adding to the home.

Something I found interesting was Karlsen's technique of using a red base coat under the blue-green paint he used for the walls, giving the walls warmth. ENJOY!
