The spectacular cookbook library of Nigella Lawson was shot by James Merrell for (the now-defunct) House & Garden in 2004. While we had seen this beautiful image (top) many times before, only happened upon the vignette (above left) with the pools of pink silk, piles of books and dusky light recently . . . Both rooms belong to the former Belgravia home that Nigella shared with her now ex-husband, Charles Saatchi, for 9 years, and of which there are only a few very rare glimpses.
