Both living rooms have identical fireplaces and mantelpiece mirrors, but they aren’t originals. ‘When we bought the house, the front fireplace resembled a horrendous, Fred Flintstone-type design,’ Beth recalls, while the one in the back room was an unappealing concrete structure. ‘Neither had any sort of design merit,’ she says. ‘We found matching fireplaces and mirrors at Ardingly Antiques Fair.’The vintage canvas safari chairs add another touch of midcentury charm. ‘We found them in a junk shop in Hastings,’ Beth reveals. The lamp is also a vintage find, while the antique demijohn on the TV cabinet adds lovely colour and gleam to the space.Demijohn jug; fireplace and mirror; both Ardingly Antiques Fair.
