Take a look around this colourful Hampshire home

This Grade II-listed Hampshire home was precisely the property its new owners had been looking for when they decided to leave London to bring up their growing family in the country. “We viewed the house in March. when the daffodils were out. It had a wonderful feel-good factor, with massive windows, lots of natural light and huge rooms.” Although structurally sound, the house needed to be replumbed and the electricity rewired; thereafter, it needed to be redecorated and the couple decided to used white-on-white for the basics of this romantic dining room so that they could play with colour in the glassware and table linen, dressing the room for different seasons and occasions. “We use masses of candles in the dining room and all the wall lights have mirrors behind them to add to the sparkle.”
