Open House London #1

Back in September, Charlotte and I went on a weekend trip to enjoy Open House London.

“Open House London celebrates all that is best about the capital’s buildings, places and neighbourhoods. Every September, it gives a unique opportunity to get out and under the skin of London’s amazing architecture, with over 700 buildings of all kinds opening their doors to everyone – all for free.”

Naturally, we squeezed in a bit of shopping as well! Here’s the first chapter documenting the fun we had in Notting Hill.

Thanks so much to Charlotte for being great company and providing the wonderful photographs.

Look out for the next Open House London #2 post for the serious stuff!

Layne Style #1: Bedroom Tour

Friends often describe me as a squirrel or a magpie as I can’t help myself when it comes to collecting things that I find beautiful. Another trait is the desire to have all these beautiful things on display, otherwise I forget I have them. Because of this, I have had to adapt my storage style to survive and below are some examples……..
