The drawing room at Melsetter House, Orkney

The combination of white painted panelling with Morris chintzes at Melsetter House designed by W.R. Lethaby in 1898, was characteristic of the light simplicity of the Arts and Crafts drawing room.
—Wendy Hitchmough, 2000

oohh lovely! I know Lethaby was part of the Morris and Webb-Arts and Crafty world. But I don't know Melsetter House. Can you add a word or two about where the house is.
