Cathy Pyle  β€’ little poems painted in light β€’ editorial + commercial interior + lifestyle photography β€’ surrey, uk β€’

One of the places we visited over the weekend was Snowshill Manor in the Cotswolds, which was bought and restored in the first half of the 20th century by architect, artist and craftsman Charles Wade to house his vast, eclectic collection of treasures. I loved this 'turquoise room', painted in the colour he developed to complement the warm Cotswold stone - skirtings, ceilings, shutters and all. And having just read @abigailahern's Decorating with Colour (thank you @deecampling 😘) I was struck by how contemporary this room looks, all these decades later!

This bright and cheery vignette is a favourite from the gorgeous, colourful home of @andrewjonathandesign whose house tour is now out on @apartmenttherapy. Happy bank holiday, y'all!

Waking up to beautiful sunshine in this loveliest of places. Happy Sunday β˜€οΈ

After finally getting to meet the lovely @deecampling yesterday and photograph her home (so exciting to see it in real life!) the excitement continues as Dee and I are now swapping houses for the weekend. So my family arrived last night and we're looking forward to some serious bank holiday downtime in our new home-from-home (aided, in my case, by the very alluring stacks of interior magazines I've spotted around the house). Happy weekend!

Those mornings where you feel you've done a day's work before 9am?! I'm looking forward to a super-exciting day with @deecampling once I catch my breath... And in the meantime, here's a cute and calm shepherds hut from my visit to @packhousefarnham earlier in the week. Happy Friday, all!

A broken twig from the garden, with its deliciously dark red-purple leaves, and the warm scent of figs.

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that - Martin Luther King. I'm sending my love out there, this heartbroken morning.

Never happier than when I'm pottering around in the sunshine.

Happy Sunday β˜€οΈ

Shhhh... can you hear it? 🐚

Last night I went with my lovely friend @rise_lifecoaching to hear @joastudholme of @farrowandball talk about colour at the new and rather gorgeous Guildford @sofadotcom showroom. Joa's an advocate of using a colour that you love inside a space like a cupboard to make you smile each time you open it. Such an easy way to bring a little extra joy into our lives. And this is exactly how I feel about my recently-painted utility room (which is scarcely larger than a cupboard): I absolutely love opening the door to see this rich, mossy green on the walls. It *almost* makes doing the laundry enjoyable πŸ˜‰πŸ’›
