All Done & Dusted

Bedroom with Maps ...

Northern Wei Dynasty Tomb figures in a Regency Dome, keeping an eye on the flat and the Guests in the Living Room!
My Steal purchase from Brighton - 1970s Pineapple Lamp.
A complete re-hanging of the pictures...

Vintage Movie Posters in the Kitchen... something to inspire the food!
The Kitchen - Carara Marble and Butle Sink.. Grey Walls courtesy of Farrow and Ball..
Open shelves and glassware.. Yes it needs editing. I know!
Below, 1940s Italian Console Table from the Decorative Fair in Battersea, with Deco Vases and Statues make a discreet welcome in the hallway.
1950/60s Murano Chandelier, courtesy of a cute shop in Rue Haute, Bruxelles.

After Hell of a lot of Dust and not a few tears but worth it (Tears - due to builders smashing some irreplaceable antiques)..

Before & in-between

There was a reason for the silence... Spring is in the air and its time to change the look of the flat! This will all be gone.. paintings to be taken down. Colour samples already on walls..

All change in the Living Room, Kitchen and Hallway.. Less Cluter, More of a Grown up sexy vibe. Lets see.

Shop Fronts..

I hate to admit this.. but I quite admired this shop front .. Can you work it out? Its floor to ceiling with old Singer sowing machines! Quite eye catching.. small problem is that this All Saints Store has ripped out the heart of Portbello Road and plonked itself there... gone are all the cool antique stores, the chance to find that rare treasure... the chance to browse and while few hours. Oh well there is a protest group on Facebook - DO SIGN UP and stop the rest of the street being taken over by chains!
