Today is quite simply a round up of a few of my favourite things. I was going to tell you how Mother came to stay last week and that in between telling me my toast had a hole in (it was a bagel) and accusing the cat of being too fat, she also suggested the blog might be a little too urban for her taste and my own good.
Now I love my mother dearly (and she probably isn’t even reading this) but that made me wonder if I should perhaps be catering for what she would call countryside set. Then 24 hours later the British rapper Professor Green tweeted that he was “thoroughly addicted” to Mad About The House. So I thought hey, I shall carry on. It is, after all, a reflection of my taste and discoveries which I like to share with you and anybody who likes it is welcome to drop in any time.
So here, for a Monday, are some of the finds that are currently rocking my (unashamedly urban) world. Obviously there is no reason why any of these pieces shouldn’t go in a country cottage. I rather like mixing things up in an unexpected way and while I don’t imagine that Mother will take to the idea of a black and neon sofa, the combination of grey and brass is one of my favourites and will fit just about anywhere.
These are also finds from some of my favourite stores, familiar to some and, perhaps, new discoveries for others. Click the links in the captions to be taken to the relevant pages, they start in the top left and go clockwise.
Regular readers will know that I am always talking about my fantasy loft or my dream kitchen. Here, for the record, are some of the elements I would incorporate in my sitting room.
