Also from the October issue of Country Living, I loved this story called Colour & Charm. (Styling by Hester Page, Photographs by Charlie Colmer). This is an artist's home in Cornwall....somehow you just know it's an artist don't you?
Alice Mumford is the painter who lives in this delightful home. I just love this big cosy wing chair in bold stripes. And her big still life paintings set casually on the mantle...and of course - bookcases overflowing.
Her simple kitchen has more of her paintings as the focus.
And above the sink, plates on display.
Cushions on this chair are actually made with potato printed designs - also by Alice.
This weekend I continued to read Julia & Julie. I can officially say that the movie is 100% better! To be honest, I'm a little tired of Julie Powell's overuse of the F...word and I just finished reading how pathetic she feels turning 30 and how she's done nothing with her life. A this stage I will finish it but I started it with the hopes of getting more of a glimpse into Julia Child's life- must pick her biography next. At 41, I usually will not finish a book I don't like because life is too short to waste time reading junk but I do kind of like the cooking bits...some of them.
On a high note, I picked up another of Edward Rutherford's books, London, so I'm really looking forward to digging into that. I can get a bit obsessed about authors - so I end up reading everything they've ever written all at once.
