Inspired by Gavin Houghton
Much to Alfie's chagrin, I often spend my Sundays doing a little decorating and fluffing of my apartment. You see, Alfie hates change, and anytime I move something around, he stops in his tracks and starts to bark at whatever it is that is new or different. Perhaps it's not change that he doesn't like. Maybe he simply doesn't like my decorating.
Anyway, last weekend I hit the internet in search of decorating inspiration, and I fortuitously found the website of British designer, art director, and furniture designer Gavin Houghton. Houghton is clearly a talented designer who is adept at mixing that classic British country house style with vibrant color and modern-minded pattern. For those of us who like this "mix" (a term that I realize is getting really tiresome,) there are lots of great ideas that we can take from Houghton's interiors.
So, in case you're looking for inspiration for your weekend decorating projects, do take a look at Houghton's site. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I only wish there were more photos of his work.
