Gilt & Tiles

Two things seem to have appeared a lot this week, those being gilt mirrors and vintage tiles. It has been a weekend of vintage shops and antique fairs and although I bought little home (for once!), there was lots of beautiful things to see.

I have been hunting out old tiles for a few months now to go in our kitchen that is finally being done in January. Victorian tiles will go above the Aga, like a higgledy-piggledy jigsaw of odd pieces. 24 down, 4 to go.

I have recently been drawn to a mixture of smooth and woollen-like textures in houndstooth. There is something so classical about the print and looks fabulous whether it’s styled traditionally or mixed and matched with an array of other interesting colours and textures.

I love the clean lines of the bespoke tailoring again the tartan and stripe combination within the suit and the black and white of the houndstooth is perfection.

How do you like your houndstooth? Straight up or with a twist?
