Mad About . . .

Monday Postcard

11th November 2019

It’s finally happened. After nearly eight years of blogging through coughs and colds and even a bout of radiotherapy I have never missed a post. Until today. Took to my bed on Thursday with flu-like symptoms and haven’t really emerged since. I’m dropping in to let you know. I’m hoping that I will be feeling better as you read this, but just in case I’m not going to make any promises for Tuesday. However, I will be back on Wednesday as I have a collaboration with Rockett St George on Christmas presents for hard to buy people and on Thursday there is a new episode of the podcast on small space living, Christmas decoration trends and why nature has always played such a strong role in design. That’ll be a chunky post to make up for missing out earlier in the week.

And I’ll leave you with this wonderful bedroom – if only that was where I was lying now – from L’Hôtel Marrackech, by Jasper Conran. This is Moroccan minimalism at its best and it’s making me feel better just looking at it. I’ll speak to you all again soon. XK
