For many years, Sarah Gordon had enjoyed decorating interiors for her property developer husband Dominic, as well as furnishing her own home. It was a passion that she wanted to take a step further, so a year ago she started sourcing merchandise for a shop.

She trawled local antique markets and visited international trade fairs, to find just the right furniture and accessories to fulfil her dream, and Bone Interiors opened last November.

Decorated in Farrow & Balls gorgeous light grey paint, the stylish exterior is carried inside the shop with its painted panelled walls and light wood flooring giving it a French country house feel.

I wanted the shop to be an extension of my home, says Sarah, so all the soft neutral shades come together in the shape of pretty chairs upholstered in cream or beige linen, lots of tall lamps displayed in pairs, and endless mirrors to reflect light and space.

Most of the dressers, tables and chests that line the walls are antique, sourced locally at Ardingly or Kempton Park, and painted in her signature colours.

Shop for
Beautiful lampshades and cushions all covered in Kate Forman linen fabrics patterned with faded pink or blue checks, stripes and florals. You can also buy this fabric by the metre for curtains and blinds.

Here, too, are antique wooden lamp bases, metal trays and wall sconces lovingly restored to their former glory by Sarah. Glass jugs, jelly moulds and bowls in simple traditional styles nudge elegant candlesticks, pretty Belgian china and sweet-smelling lavender bags.

Youll also find gorgeous throws in cashmere or wool and pretty wooden tea boxes with glass lids that are perfect for jewellery. And, if youre looking for a great flower display, Sarah will find an interesting container and have it planted with silk flowers for lasting value.

Favourite product
An unusual candle wall sconce with a long metal bracket and glass bowl for 65. A pair would look very elegant either side of a fireplace mirror.

Worth a visit
Because Sarah listens to what her customers want and will always try to find an unusual piece of furniture or accessory to make you feel really special.
