With almost a year of photos to choose from I thought I'd select my favourite 12 from my posts. Not an easy task as I found myself saving more and more images from the archives. If I'd chosen from Kim's posts as well I would have had to give up. I love so much of what she found this year.

Love this house

5 floor, fully panelled Huguenot silk weaver's house built in 1722 with high ceilings, wooden cornices, lime plastering, broad 18th c floorboards, stone flags in kitchen, open fires on all floors, beautiful light and high walled landscaped back garden, in Spitafields, East London. The description is an intriguing teaser but doesn't quite prepare you for this amazing house. Beautiful architecture matched if not outshone by midcentury classic furniture and a quirky courageous style. Yet another gorgeous location house. This one from jj locations. I love it.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ....

I'm a "Bah! Humbug!" sort of girl myself and Christmas isn't that big in my house (except for the family gatherings and the copious amounts of food and drink) but when I was checking out Aaron R Thomas's website to see what fab new things he has designed my heart skipped a beat. Lucite lovers of the world unite, an acrylic christmas tree. Swoon! This one has been styled for the Bamboo Colony in L.A. Check it out here and here. (Earlier post here.) Limited edition so if you can't resist go now.


Domino reader's choice and a shameless plug for Victoria

The Domino reader's home decorating contest had us all in a buzz. The winner has been announced and I'd thought the excitement was over for another year. But wait!! There's more. Domino have just announced a reader's choice award. Just pick your favourite among the runners-up. Of course we are gunning for Victoria and her oh so fabulous boho modern apartment in San Francisco. So start voting. You have between November 29th and December 14th. To see more of Victoria's amazing home as recently feature in Real Living click here.


I want to live here.

I've loved this house ever since we featured the dining room way back in April. This time the photos are from another location company Dixcot Locations and more of this amazing house is revealed. I'd move in tomorrow if I could. Glamour, design classics, acrylic and quirky touches make this place just too cool. Even a lovely mature garden with a rusted antique bench. The whole place is wonderfully flamboyant and fabulous. London here I come. And if I can't make it then at least I can revisit this favourite over and over here.
