I have been struggling with design to come up with things that look right. My learned friend suggested that when he was at college they visited various country house and furniture collections to look at what is ‘good’ and to get ideas.

Can any one suggest places to visit with good collections - we are West Midlands based,

Thanks

Surely the best place to visit collections is the Internet?

Modern, traditional, historical, eclectic.......?
I can guarantee your “nice” could mean different things to lots of people on this forum.
Can you be more specific?
