Homes from fiction

"The room they entered was a perfect Queen Anne sitting-room, .... The walls were white panelled and hung with delicate mezzotints. The old rose of the Chinese carpet was echoed in the brocaded hangings which framed the perfect bow of the window. The old walnut furniture reflected softly the bright fire in the grate. The candlesticks were silver and the upholstery covered with needlework." 

From Police at the Funeral (Albert Campion #4) by Margery Allingham.
