Our old one was the one that you would have been interested in. You see we are going from a huge city flat built about 1890 to a small house built in the 1970's.

    The old apartment is a listed building. It has giant proportions. It's built of red sandstone. It has 14 foot high ceilings with some of the original cornicing and plaster ceiling light roses. The doors are about 8 feet I think. The front storm door is bigger, about twelve feet. The windows are sash and case, some with wood panelled shutters. The floors are all stripped, sanded and varnished. The floorboards are very wide and they have a beautiful colour to them, as have the big deep skirtings and the panelled doors and window frames. We did a lot of work to it and a lot of love went into it over many many years. I'm sure that you would have liked that house. The new one by contrast is of no actual interest. But it was time for a change. It's exciting. I had to live elsewhere for a wee while then back home then we had to make a temporary move after we sold but before we bought. So I have had several moves in two years. It doesn't suit me. I get attached to houses. I think that you do get attached to them when you do a lot of the work yourselves.

    All of our stuff is HUGE. It's going to be like trying to stuff an elephants ass into a shoe box. Actually we will need to change a lot of things, but as I said, the design challenge is great! A cool contemporary interior with the best (and smallest) of our older or period stuff to mix things up? What says you?

    Take Care everyone. Be good to each other.
    How I wish you were a sis-in-law as well as sis-in-leau.

    Old or new, house talk is interesting. The home you exited sounds pretty fantastic. Scale is a really tricky thing, isn't it? The house Mr. Q and I lived in and completely remodeled before inheriting the schoolhouse was small. I still look forward to hearing about how you go about making your new home represent you. I bet you'll treasure showcasing your favorite things that fit. You have a new color palette in mind, too, I'm sure. What tiring fun you and Mr. F will have.

    Hello, good-smelling friends!

    Foustie, you have just described my decorating style: eclectic! I say yes to mixing antique and contemporary pieces! The new home will be absolutely lovely; have fun making it yours, my dear!

    I'm "Like Mike" today, sampling from jujy's pass. DK Jasmine for me. A wonderful, pure, natural smelling jasmine. Yes, from DK. Who knew? Probably some of you did!

    I am starting a new book ('The Magicians' by Lev Grossman) and I have been waiting all day to come home and curl up in bed with it. So I tried to find the most 'magical' scent in my sample/decant pile and decided on this one:

    La Treizième Heure XIII by Cartier

    Those mate/bitch/leather notes just catches my breath, every time I wear this. I always got a headache from Bulgari Black and Patchouli 24 but this one is much more wide open and well...still manages to be dark, mysterious and mythic. Off to my book!!
