A branch of the H-plan basement corridor at Balintore. Though termed 'basement,' the service rooms are primarily at ground level; comprising Servants' Hall, Butler's Pantry, Silver Cleaning Room, Lumber Room, Women Servants' Sitting Room, Housekeeper's Room & Beer/Wine Cellars etc. The rooms are spacious and will enjoy the same fine views of the Angus glens as the principal floor above once window repairs are complete. This is the first time I have seen daylight at this level, as all ground floor rooms have been boarded for the past decade or so since I started visiting. Exciting progress! #balintorecastle#countryhouse#castlesofscotland#restorationproject#derelictionporn
Frittata på rester. Bästa måltiden när man inte har någon fantasi eller ork att ställa sig och laga mat. Vi fyllde vår med potatis, oliver, fetaost, spenat och parmesan. Väldigt gott och väldigt enkelt! 🍳🥦
Drumlin Hall, Dutchess County, New York. This beautiful image is the result of the great talents of three men whom I am proud to know: @peterpennoyerarchitects @thomasjayne @pieterestersohnphoto. Drumlin Hall was recently built to house the impressive art collection of its owners in the rolling hills of the Hudson River Valley. The building’s stylistic pedigree draws from Adam, Holland, Soane, and Latrobe, and its rooms are filled with some of the best examples of American classical furniture including this pair of Charles-Honoré Lannuier consoles. Collective modern traditional genius and clients who have the passion, resources, and audacity to bring it into being. Photo credit - Pieter Estersohn
I love working with vintage / antique kilims. Although I have chosen not the easiest textile in the world to upholster with! In fact one of the most difficult I would say. But when your working with it you start to notice all the imperfections and old repairs etc. Which I think adds so much character to the finished piece of furniture. You just can't get with any other textile.. I am loving this chair....
Have you ever seen a more perfect little set up 💚 People would be forgiven for thinking that yellow is my favourite colour (I have a yellow car and 70% of my wardrobe is mustard) but it's actually this lush sage green colour - now if anyone could track down the owner of this fab car/house combo and get them to swap with me that would be amazing! . . . #goals#dreamcar#iwantthathouse
Наверное нужно всё же поторопить зиму и убрать ёлочку, но она у нас как дополнительный светильник. Вечером мы чаще включаем боковой свет, зажигаем свечи, горит камин. И ёлочка в этой атмосфере своя-своя, часть сценария. Как уберу, недели две привыкаю к её отсутствию. Кто ещё предпочитает боковое освещение? Торшеры там, лампы всякие, свечи. Есть любители?
