This week's detail is perhaps a little bit late, and so, I have combined two pretty things for you to enjoy...the first being that shapely Louis XVI reproduction bench from Rose Cumming. I love the perfect ecru and black striped silk taffeta upholstery against the wood. It just makes it! And then there is that elegant, perfectly appointed bouquet. The soft, buttery roses look too beautiful against the oval vase, glazed in the most pale of greens. English potter Sue Paraskaeva designs some beautiful pieces – click here to view her full line of work. Don't you just want to curl up with good company and some tea in this sweet little corner?
