Interior design at Sherringham

Previous - Next

INTERIOR ARRANGEMENT. It is remarkable, that, of the many thousand plans which have been made, in different ages and countries, no one has ever been deemed so far perfect as to become the model for any future design. In digesting the arrangement for the house at Sherringham [figs. 243, 244, and 245], we have proposed a plan [fig. 243], in many respects differing from other houses, for which we plead the following reasons:- Firstly. The wishes of the proprietor. Secondly. The adaptation of the house to the situation, character, and circumstances of the spot. Thirdly. The style in which it is supposed to be inhabited.
