Old World Sitting Room

Exposed wood beams keep this high-ceilinged living room intimate and cosy.

A love of texture, layering, art, and architectural wood are all on display in the sitting room of designer and cookbook author Sophie Conran's Temple Guiting cookery school. Antique chairs and tables offer ample opportunities for guests and students to relax in style.
