Evening read sorted @cabanamagazine issue Ten, beautifully produced interiors magazine published twice a year. This issue has a choice twelve different Dries Van Noten fabric covers & I got mine from the excellent @magalleriabath #interiordesign #interiordecoration #interiorinspiration #art #gardeninspiration #driesvannoten #cabanamagazine #indulgence

I love the contrast of the simplicity of the beautiful pews against the highly elaborate stone & marble monument to Sir Robert Atkyns(d.1711) #memorial #monument #stonemasonart #englishchurch #churchinterior #boxpews #jacobeanperiod #autumnafternoon #cotswolds #tranquil

These beautifully carved and highly unusual Jacobean pew-ends are not original to the church, but early architectural salvage from Sapperton Manor banqueting hall when it was demolished in 1730 #churchpew #boxpews #jacobeanperiod #architecturalsalvage #wastenotwantnot #churchinterior #englishchurch #cotswolds

Looking down from the pulpit of St Kenelm’s Church, Sapperton, to fine stone memorials dating from the fifteenth & sixteenth centuries #englishchurch #churchinterior #churcharchitecture #stonememorials #stonemasonart #autumnafternoonsun #tranquility #theraputic

The interior of St Kenelm’s Church, Sapperton, Gloucestershire is an interesting mixture as this panelling was donated by the 1st Earl of Bathurst from the banqueting hall the nearby Sapperton Manor when it was demolished in 1730, the early Georgian window helps highlight the beautiful panelling #englishchurchinterior #jacobeanpanelling #architectualsalvage #georgianwindow #autumnafternoonsun

I never tire of visiting St Kenelm’s Church, Sapperton, Gloucestershire, the Church has a wonderful tranquility & I always find something different to photograph- this is the time worn rear of the entrance door #weatheredbytime #patinaoftime #ancientoakdoor #churchdoor #passageoftime #englishchurch

Wet Sunday afternoon sounds- Harry Nilsson-A Little Touch Of Schmilsson In The Night- recorded in 1973 & definitely one of the outstanding albums of the seventies #harrynilsson #schmilssoninthenight #sundayafternoonsoundtrack #laidback #hunkerdown #timetoonesself #backintime #lostyouth #tripdownmemorylane
