Hope Posted October 25, 2016 Share Posted October 25, 2016 Winchester House Set on an acre of fertile land in the now very popular village of Chelsea, a brand new townhouse has been constructed in the finest style. A gravel drive loops around a circular garden bed freshly planted with roses, giving access to the two story building of fine grey stone via an oak door painted a lush green as though to match the surrounding countryside. A garden is being gradually laid out around the house in an orderly and logical fashion, predominantly roses and shade trees in front and vegetables out the back, however the majority of the land is still vacant, as though perhaps other things were planned for the future. A side branch of the drive leads to a coach-house. In contrast to the orderly nature of the architecture and garden layout, the interior of the house has been furnished in a rather more whimsical fashion. Warm, honey-coloured wood floorboards are polished to a high gleam and overlaid with white sheepskin rugs that make one want to remove one's shoes and bury one's toes in them. The furniture of the drawing and dining rooms are made of the same warm maple wood and upholstered in cream fabric with brocaded patterns of flowers and fairies. The upper arches of the windows are stained glass in a similar theme, and one might consider that there was possibly an excess of crystal prisms hanging around the various candle fixtures, causing stray sparkles and rainbows to appear about the rooms. The only place where this theme wasn't all-encompassing was the study at the rear, overlooking the herb garden, which contained furniture of somewhat darker, more masculine shades and green upholstery. At least, what could be seen of it under books and papers and the odd plant in a pot. The bedrooms upstairs were decked out in a similar whimsical theme to the rooms below, perhaps a little more muted in the master bedroom but positively rampant in the Lady's room and the nursery, where lilac silk satin bows with little bells adorned every conceivable point, bedclothes in white satin were carefully embroidered with angels, fairies and flowers, and a mobile of the same hung above an object so heavily bedecked with bows, lace and frills that it took a few moments for the casual observer to realise that it was a baby's crib. ~//~ Noni sat at her desk, writing a list.
