A little too much to take..........

I thought that I would leave Victorian Splendour for a while as I think it was a bit too much for some of you !!!! We will come back to it at a later date. But back to simplicity and clean lines. This is more like it, isn't it ? There is still a little touch of the theatrical but, because the rest is so simple, it just gives it some ooommph and also something to stimulate the mind. Many of the minimal looks offer nothing for discussion. Nothing beautiful to look at and stimulate. I think that this house could do with more pictures and object d'art but there are still some lovely little touches.Thinking of the lace in yesterdays post, this lace is very similar but looks completely different.

The candles, wall light and little lamp really give this room a lovely ambiance.

A little touch of the U.K. on the floor. The Union Jack is so big in interiors at the moment, isn't it ?


Oooops. There it is again !! And look at those great shutters.




......... finally, the kitchen and what a kitchen. What I wouldn't give for a kitchen like that. It is still traditional but so now. Hope you didn't miss the Victorian Splendour !!!!

  1. Everytime I see your name, Jackie, I think of my little dog. Anyway, I love the photos of this house. For me, simplicity is the key to a quiet and peaceful feel to a home. My home is white and simple in it's decor and a lot of people who come through tell me how peaceful it feels. My dog, Jackie, loved a quiet home. He felt safe in it. Thanks for sharing these photos. They are lovely.
