Shaker

"This is my absolute favourite."

The Shakers arrived in America about 1770 and within fifty years most of their designs had reached the final forms we see today.

Their work was a form of worship and for me this somehow comes across in the simplicity of the look. Everything is so perfectly proportioned , beautiful although unadorned. 

To create the look, clear soft colours, white will accentuate the purity but soft blue grey works well.

No mad bright chintzy colours here. The stronger tones should be the deep natural colours of the woods themselves.

Wooden furniture and wooden floors with rugs, and bare windows with only simple blinds or muslin curtains for privacy.

Plenty of Shaker style furniture available and accessories should be utilitarian and and simple.

And we do understand that this is not shaker furniture but we like it anyway
