Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links


Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 17.06.19

PAINTED THE SITTING ROOM this weekend, Farrow & Ball’s Middleton Pink, and it turned out to be rather disastrous. We ended up having to pick up new paint the next day and repaint everything, despite all my research pointing to the colour being pale powdery perfection, the prettiest and most delicate pink. We’re not certain what went wrong, but perhaps a combination of the wall texture and room lighting were to blame in making the colour appear a vivid candy floss pink that somehow even managed to clash with the fireplace mantle, which is cream. Décor misadventures aside, everything else was rather perfect, with sunset walks and Spanish wine in the last golden light of day; old stone houses and English roses and roaring fires and the feeling of being really very happy.

This week’s links include a farmhouse kitchen in Österlen and a recipe for Whole Grain Linguine with Salmon and Asparagus; a cotton puff sleeve mini dress, how to shoot better interior photography and much, much more.

  • The exact thing happened to me several years ago with a pink bedroom. I dubbed it ”bubblegum pink” and repainted immediately. But before I was finished, the sunset shown in the window on the color and made it blinding.

    So glad you are back and I hope I am on the regular mailing list again. I had to hunt for you and it is so much better when the visual treat of your site pops up unexpectedly and I immediately open it to enjoy.

    Keep up the good work.

    • Isn’t the the worst? Was so looking forward to a pale and lovely (and apparently flattering) pink-hued room but it was not meant to be… Thank you re: the newsletter–it’s so nice to hear! xR
