just dessert

June 7, 2018

The dessert trolley was my favourite part of the meal –– more so than the Shirley Temples, and the french fries that arrived under a silver dome. Dinners out with my grandparents were always grand. Very often, I went with a crème caramel or something rich and chocolatey. I loved éclairs, too. You so rarely see the trolley anymore. Or maybe it’s the restaurants I frequent.

Cinzano hour

June 5, 2018

This is my kind of cocktail hour. Rich jewel tones, wild, whimsical flowers and bottles of Italian vermouth. Give me a room full of people to watch, and I could sit at this bar for hours. If anyone knows where it is, tell me, and I’ll meet you there.

British made

June 4, 2018

Just look at the marvelous kitchen of British garden designer, Butter Wakefield, a total departure from the ultra modern one I posted Friday. I love the back wall of vintage plates, botanical drawings and bud vases. What a lovely place to nosh on ham and cheese croissants and country breads slathered in jam.  Have a walk around the whole house –– so charming, so colourful, so English.

j’adore decor

June 1, 2018

I really like the work of Aussie interior design duo, Juliette Arent and Sarah Jane Pyke. Their spaces are warm, eclectic and colour rich. Look at The Alex Hotel in Perth –– it’s one quirky, colourful detail after another. All the brass, warm wood and bright white at Curational House is stunning. And I’m in love with the kitchen over at Treetop House.
