Indian interiors...as seen at the Mansingh

On my recent visit to India, I was lucky to have spent some of that time travelling with friends and discovering new places. One of the many places we visited was Jaipur - the Pink city. We stayed at the Hotel Mansingh.

I generally love all things Indian and so, the interiors of the hotel, partciularly the reception really caught my attention with its traditional furniture and ornaments; and I couldn't help myself but take some photos....so, I could be inspired in the future (back in the UK) when deciding to choose furniture for my home.

Now that I have some spare time, I'm really enjoying reading about interiors from around the world. This is further enhanced by so many inspiring blogs about interiors..

Schmap London Fourth Edition: Photo Inclusion

Imagine my delight when one of my photos was chosen to be included in the fourth edition of the Schmap guide to London. The photo is of London Central Mosque.

It was taken on one of those rare sunny days in London last year. I decided to go for a long walk in Regents Park and came across the mosque. I'm longing for the return of some brighter weather and a release from the drab and grey tones of the lingering winter....

I love sundays - sundays are also about long lunches, long walks and and daydreaming - why can't everyday be sunday?

sunday mornings..

sunday mornings are all about:-
  • waking up early and getting dressed
  • walk to the shops and buy my favourite paper ( which I miss so much, when I go abroad)
  • indulge in an almond croissant with a pot of freashly made coffee
  • seat back and read, read and read

Sweeney Todd....the demon barber of fleet street

The latest film by Tim Burton has opened to rave reviews and I can't wait to see it, as any film that brings both Johnny Deep and Tim Burton together is going to be pure cinematic delight and oozing gothic tones. I'm a great of fan of Burton's films and favourites include Batman, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow and A nightmare before christmas. The film nut in me becomes very excited with prospect of seeing any of Burton's film on the big screen, as one can only truely appreciate the visual delight on show.
