Paper, Post & Pretties

Last week I received an email from a representative of Farrow & Ball asking if I was interested in receiving some information on the new range of wallpapers that they are launching soon.
Was I? Of course I was! Farrow & Ball paint colours are always lovely & as Tamzin & I are both interested in anything textile or home decor related we were both keen to see the new range.

A few days later I received a package in the post containing their press release plus a few samples of the "Baroque Papers" & they are lovely! The d
esigns are classic & elegant & the colours are fabulous.

I particularly like the soft chocolatey brown & blue combination - it would be very relaxing to look at in any room.

Also included was a very pretty box containing a set of notecards with examples of the papers on the front - what a lovely treat & one I will enjoy using!

So, thank you F&B for sharing your beautiful new range with me - I'm sure it will be very popular.

Speaking of home decor, Tamzin & I popped into Gloucester yesterday to top up our stock & to refresh our table display before the bank holiday weekend so I took a few photos to show you.

We went for a bit of a travel/shopping/picnic/red theme on our table.
The retro picnic set is fabulous & we have added a few vintage guide books & maps for good measure. The little grocery shop on the right is rather adorable & also from the 50's - it has an advert for Chivers jelly on the front & even a little
working light!

There is also this rather wonderful gold wicker chair with it's original 1950's seat fabric.

Hope you all have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend. It looks like we are in for some nice weather which is good as we'll be off to a horse show tomorrow to watch Tamzin & Dylan competing.
