So hard for it honey…sometimes there is nary a moment for lunch. So sometimes one just can’t be choosy and Molly and I dash into the nearest joint en route to Christies South Ken.

Our design/decorator readers will know how exhausting installations can be, and it’s possible I’m slightly punch drunk, but as soon as we sit down I start to realize this interior is actually two minutes shy of something entirely great.  Ok well maybe 10 minutes but let’s just take a look past all that visual mess.

Sort of wonderful stylised coining around mirror arches…like.

Lumpy plaster and acanthus leaves over mirror pediments…like

I just can’t help but dream how divine we could make this lickity-split.

Molly is laughing at me….so off we go.

    A bit of gingham and it would look like a Bonnard!

    Refreshingly unpretentious isn’t it. That rather original shade of blue (surely not Farrow & Ball’s lovely “Off Black”?) on the ceiling holds the shambles together.
