The Selby shoots Abigail Ahern's home...

After seeing The Selby's images of Abigail Ahern's London home...i've fallen in LOVE with it all over again!

I was thinking of painting my 3rd reception room Teal...BUT - after this reminder...i'm NOW thinking Farrow and ball Downpipe! All Walls...the ceiling and woodwork.

Some books for the Library...

Carine Roitfeld's book, Irreverent! takes a look back at her 30 year career in fashion.

Pictures 1988
Herb Ritts' photographs have quickly become the quintessential distillation of American pop culture in the eighties. Ritts' portraits of celebrities are at once monumental, recognisable, and often sexually charged. His pictures of rock star Madonna have given cachet to all she hopes to sell the world; glamour, sex and song. Sylvester Stallone, another pop icon, seems to parody himself with his macho posturing in Ritts' photographs. Others joining the parade are Pee Wee Herman, Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, Shirley MacLaine and Beach Boy Brian Wilson.

Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel captures the world of fashion icon and cult figure Diana Vreeland, who transformed life into an adventure and revolutionised fashion

Arguably the most influential, imaginative, and provocative designer of his generation, Alexander McQueen both challenged and expanded fashion conventions to express ideas about race, class, sexuality, religion, and the environment. Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty examines the full breadth of the designer’s career.

David Hicks - La Fiorentina fabric...

I've just found a company within the Uk where you can buy my FAV fabric...

David Hicks - La Fiorentina in Black and white



I want to have curtain's made from it for the master bed.

I'm thinking floor to ceiling and wall to wall...when open - curtains will sit up against the wall to right hand side of the image below.

The curtain pole/rail will sit above and in front of the bay window and will run the full length of the wall.

A vintage 1920's leather chesterfield sofa!

When I get a quite 5 mins in the office...I spend me time trolling though the internet looking for all the things I love!

Such as this - A vintage 1920's leather chesterfield sofa...
