{décor inspiration | places : chandeliers & carrara in the kitchen}

AND THIS WEEK seems to be flying by, and yet, all around, there seems, at once, to be a stillness in the air, the calm before the holiday madness begins in a flurry of egg nog and last-minute shopping. Here, there are a million and one things still left to do, a frightfully neglected inbox, pastel-coloured Moleskins overflowinging with to-do lists, and another gift guide, here, later today, but before it all begins, had wanted to show you this beautiful kitchen had come across last week, all a perfect mix of rich wood, lucite, chandeliers and carrara . . .
