Yogurt biscuits and breakfast
outside made me long for an alfresco start to the day.
Congratulations to Mia on the birth of her baby boy
Wasn’t the Royal Wedding just beautiful? I was lucky enough to have the day off to watch the whole event, and enjoyed every moment! Did you watch – what did you think? I loved Kate’s dresses and I thought it was lovely how her and Wills drove to Clarence House in the decorated Aston Martin. Now the festivities are over, I’m going to use the rest of the weekend to switch out winter linens for spring ones and with the warmer weather I’m going to fling open the windows, light some candles and have a late dinner. What are your plans, friends?
With well above average UK temperatures for the time of year, I’ve found my thoughts wondering to stylish summer holiday escapes. Much of this daydreaming has centered around relaxed countryside living, where open doors allow a gentle breeze to blow through the house, as the sound of crickets fills the air. There would be rustic furniture in every room – much like the details seen in this dining room – with colourful additions to add a playful tone to each space. Fragrant, freshly picked blooms would adorn vases for a casual centerpiece, and old linens would soften wooden tabletops. There would be good food, great wine and even better friends. What would your ideal country escape be like?
