My friend's house...

A little while back when I visited my mum and dad, I took the opportunity to drop in on one of my best friends. Apart from the fact that it's lovely to see a good friend, have coffee and a lengthy chat, it's also always nice to see how their homes change over time. From wallpapered feature wall to plain grey, from tall kitchen bar complete with stools to cosy dining table and from big corner sofa to two squashy ones. I love the kitchen chairs and despite the fact that purple really isn't my colour, I think it works wonderfully in this kitchen. It's not too in-your-face and all the small purple accessories in the rest of the house pull the look together beautifully. The antique side table with the chinoiserie style inlay is a gorgeous touch in an otherwise relatively modern interior and flowers bring a touch of spring to it all. As I said, it's so nice and interesting to catch up with a friend after a long time apart...
