Happily finished pre-lockdown, my clients get to e Happily finished pre-lockdown, my clients get to enjoy their wonderful finished home a LOT now! 
Sneak peek of a recently finished home in Prinsted for hands down the #bestclientsever. This wood floor is brand new but so expertly laid by my favourite @justwoodflooring looks like it is original to the property. 
Complete trust from my clients allowed for some amazing interior details options to open up, like curved corners to the walls (SO worth the effort). All to create a modern ‘old’ home.

A bit of a side step from my normal appreciation, A bit of a side step from my normal appreciation, but for architecture, and for the love of horses, I couldn’t let this pass. Designed by @matiaszegers, this stable has the maximum daylight pouring in through its cleverly envisaged roof.

In retrospect, thinking that lockdown would enable In retrospect, thinking that lockdown would enable me to do that great big clear out I’ve been promising to do for years, may have been a bit ambitious. Especially as all the charity shops are closed (yes, and the dump). I am pretty heartless with ‘stuff’, being a believer in the old William Morris adage that if you do not know something to be useful or believe it to be beautiful, it has no place in your home. 
And yet... Two households becoming one (over a decade ago, how long as I going to use that excuse for?!), having children, and part-modifying our dream house (pending phase2) leaves me in ‘stuff’ limbo sometimes. Do you know what I mean? The stuckness of indecision; should I, shouldn’t I keep this? 
And a niggling worry that as soon as I throw something out, I’ll need to use it 😳! When lockdown is over, I’ll be ready to release my wares for another person to benefit from. Until then, I am taking time to make peace with what I have, to remember that I once chose it.
