“Sunrooms are fantastic extensions to country homes, offering a place to relax, read a book and enjoy a cup of tea. Given the freshness of the colours of The Lotus Series No. 34 and 35 by Lihong Zhang, I envision it on the wall of such a room. I’ve brought in my Bianco Espresso Cup and Saucer set for its elegant, crisp white. These mid-century Italian wicker lounge chairs are stunning in appearance and create the perfect reading nook. For seating, a cushion is a necessity. This painting features orange and green against a grey, muted background, with which the colours in my Amalfi cushion would pair nicely. Above this cushioned reading chair, I can see this contemporary pendant light by Anna Charlesworth. It almost resembles a sun hat in its appearance, making it a fitting addition to a warm, sunlit conservatory.”
