Life so far in 2013 has been a whirlwind of industrial glam, swimming pools and a flurry of tenants in & out… with little time for anything else! It’s all calming down now – the madness of moving season is abating, the Baths tsunami has settled into a gentle wave and Project Rivet is complete… so I can finally get a bit of blogging done! I have such good intentions every week, then time just slips away. Must. try. harder.
Thought I’d share some images from a lovely London launch Mr M and I went to for A Passion For Homes, a web-site wholly devoted to amazing, dream homes & all things property, and borne from Andrea & Jo’s complete obsession for houses – two women after my own heart. Fab to meet @SpaceAlchemist, @rightmove & @WhatSamSawToday too and highly amusing to watch Mr M being poured fizz from a china tea pot 🙂
The launch was held in a really interesting space, sort of part commercial, part residential, and attached to a real renovation project. Best of all, we could have a snoop round the owners house #bonus. Lots of brick, original features, exposed beams and interesting interior design. I especially liked the indoor swing and the stitch detailing on the sofa arms but I’m a bit upholstery obsessed at the mo, as you know.
After that it was a quick scoot over to the fabulous Pitfield for drinks and a catch up with the Designersblock boys. Back at Interiors UK in January I’d spotted some cool looking Cockatoos but couldn’t carry yet another bag…
So I was delighted to see them in the Pitfield shop and snaffled one for Moregeous mansions. I love him! He’s now perched on my mantelpiece in the bedroom 🙂 Thought it was a bit much to go for the giant golden squid…. but I definitely want a Lauren Baker skull at some point soon too.
