Feels like being abroad!
I finally got to visit Antigua.
This colourful town is full of cosy cafes and calm, cultural vibes. My collage of pictures includes:
1. “The wall has many faces”
2. “Shades don’t have colours”
3. “Dictator Mau”
4. “Earth smells like home”

Day 1 of the Global Shop Expo 2019 at the McCormick Place in Chicago! Come see our amazing DuPont Tedlar Wallcovering at Booth 4711. The designs that will bring your retail space alive, and the durability you demand that only DuPont Tedlar can offer! Look at the beautiful Pacific Silk Ice in the showroom and Essentials I White in the bathrooms that were recently installed in a Cadillac dealership! Quote from Cadillac Dealership, “We love this Wallcovering! Every other Wallcovering we had used failed and would scratch and stain. You cannot destroy DuPont Tedlar Wallcovering if we tried. It literally wipes clean and is truly Stain Proof! #globalshop2019 #retaildesign #design #wallcovering #walls #interiordesign #cadillac #iida #iidahq @endurewallsbytedlar
🍴 DINING in PEACE🍴
Here’s the space I called my office; the #diningroom. My favorite room. The room which needed cleansing both physically and #spiritually when we moved in. It’s peacefully open way at the end of the hall out back at the rear of the house, beneath my sanctuary bedroom. I consider it the original garden room with its tall and wide glazed #timber #patio doors opening onto the garden. The room frames the garden. Such a great #entertaining space. It’s where we dined daily, where we hosted dinner #parties. Where I wrote things down and materialized #fabulous ideas. And where we found next doors cat sneaking in for a nap now and then (as I always leave back doors open for air flow/ #mindfulness outdoors-in etc). The room is a bit #raw with deliberate imperfections. I love it. The #walls have #original paneling with some of the timber a bit bendy or crooked. It’s sexy. We filled the #panels with outrageously cheap #damask wallpaper then had each panel sprayed with @rustoleum metallic gold. The exposed #floorboards were sanded sealed and varnished. It’s the only room I allowed the builders to lift out the mantelpiece from situ to hack-off the lathe (plaster) surrounding it for a nice flush bonded and skimmed leveled wall in line with the original #stainedglass #window. The previous owners put a ridiculous telly ariel incision via the stained glass. Some absolute bellend actually drilled through this #masterpiece handcrafted stained glass to enable the hook up to a TV 😲 I never could bring myself to ask to have the cable completely removed from the glazed-good. I couldn’t put the piece through anymore pain. It was perfect. Even if it did have a sliced tube remnant of cable in its bottom pane. It didn’t shatter and nobody could ever notice. I never pointed it out.
The #drapes were made by my grandma. I found the #fabric in John Lewis then told Terry in Walthamstow market to sell us the whole roll for an amazing discount. The #table was made for us from an Ealing based Teakwood seller. The dining chairs were purchased from Palace Antiques on Hornsey High Street. (Perspex) #chandelier and wall #lights from a wholesaler.
