I am absolutely over the moon to be feature on Mad About The House in the weekly feature of ‘10 Beautiful Rooms‘. In fact Kate Watson-Smyth was very kind to feature not one room of mine but two! Kate is one of my all time Interior Blog hero’s. Not only does she write beautifully. But she inspires me too having set up her Blog at around the same age as I am now. It’s sometimes hard to start over, create a new beginning in life when you’re ahem, the wrong side of 40! But Kate has gone from strength to strength and it gives me hope that I’m actually going somewhere with this little old blog of mine.
As the first room to share with her readers (go have a mooch if you’ve never read her blog before) Kate features my gold leaf sitting room fireplace. She says:
Moving over to Bristol and the home of Rachel Edmond, otherwise known as Raspberry Flavoured Windows. This is a masterclass in dark with gold accents.
The second room is my bedroom complete with it’s gold Fireplace. I always believe it’s important to take a few risks in interior design. Sometimes it doesn’t work and other times, like this one my gamble paid off! Kate says:
So I’m going to include two of her rooms because look at that for an idea – a gold stripe down the side of the fireplace which, she told, is so pretty when the fire is lit and then a gold fireplace. I can’t believe I haven’t seen this more often. You’d have to be pretty careful it didn’t look bling when when it’s the only colour in the room apart from the black it looks great.
As I say, I’m over the moon to feature on Mad About The House. It really is a great Blog with loads of inspiration to take away with you. Please do go and have a read if you have a spare moment. I promise you won’t be disappointed! Oh, and if you were wondering about my style, have a read all about the dark side of interiors.
