Holiday reading guide 2009

Posted on Thu, 31 Dec 2009 by midcenturyjo

Time to put my vintage Santas away and time to venture back into the blogpond. Some of you are still on holidays (I know I am) and some are working “hard” at the office/home (yes I mean you Kim!). I originally intended to cover the Christmas and New Year breaks with my reading guides but, hey, there are just too many blogs out there to be explored. For me it’s early New Year’s Eve and I’m really looking forward to 2010. So excuse me if I don’t settle in with a cup of tea this time. I’m popping the first champagne cork of the evening.













Some favourite dining rooms of 2009

I was trawling through our archives looking for rooms that really ticked all the boxes for me. Kim has been so organised, grouping them by rooms type. I’ve managed to get through January to March and lumped them all together. (You should see Kim’s photo files, all catalogued by room type or colour. Mine are jumbled in ever growing, ever spreading folders.) One thing I did realise is that we post a lot of pictures! The other thing that dawned on me is that I’m looking for other things in a room now. Don’t get me wrong. I still love bold and brash, colourful and glam. Hollywood Regency still makes my hear skip and pure midcentury is perfection but these are some of my favourites, right here, right now. I think I’m mellowing.
