Elle Deco

Whooooo hooooooo I wrote at the beginning of the year that I wanted to have Belle & Boo mentioned in Elle Deco (my fav interiors mag) & this month there we are, I am very chuffed :)

I spent a lovely weekend in the Cotswolds with my family, it was such a beautiful house (we stayed in the middle section, called Bell House) there was a very pretty courtyard, where I spent many an hour sipping Rose wine & flicking through the pages of Cotswold Life, trying to decide which country pile I would buy if I had a spare few million!

My dad and I visited Woodchester Mansion, a grand gothic building. The Mansion was abandoned by its builders in the middle of construction around 1870, leaving behind a building that appears complete from the outside, but with floors, plaster and whole rooms missing inside. Now a programme of training courses in stone conservation and craftsmanship are run there. Check out the taps on this bath.

& shower

There was also lots of crochet & blanket lounging. Thanks mum it was super x

It was back to reality with a bang on Monday, my studio looks more like a car boot sale at the moment as I gather everything I will need for the up coming shows. Its Bubble this Sunday where we will launch our new Autumn Winter collection of clothes, so check back next week for photos.
