ECA chinese garden stools in cream glaze earthernware sit in front of this window lookout, with a simple upholstered bench and standing lamp make a perfect curl up and read spot.

Sheer curtains in this dining room soften the strict lines of the trestle dining table, and iron based console. Another hand made paper and dried flower artwork add the only touch of color to this peacful dining room.

One of our favourite Swedish Style Drop Front desks makes the perfect place to catch up on notes and letters.

  1. To all those interested:

    My wife and I have known Marna Varney's work for some time . She

    brings a passion and a discipline to her work that few interior designers

    possess She takes the time to understand her customer and is one of the

    few that is not looking to make a "statement" as much as she is there to

    create an environment that is a reflection of her clients personality and

    life style. The end result is really what the individuals would have done

    for themselves if they had the time and the patience to deal with the

    countless large and small decisions that need to be made when your

    creating an environment reflective of their style and personality. All that

    being said what makes Marna Varney unique is not just

    expected good taste but the ability to surprise and delight. In the

    end your left with the sentiment "This place feels like us!" But secretly

    your thinking "Thats good ...thats really good.. would i have thought of

    that ???
