Well, I’m finally back to blogging after my 6 week hiatus. How have you been? How was your Easter? I hope you had a lovely couple of months and managed to at least get some down time over the Easter period.
On coming back from Melbourne, Australia I must admit that it took a little while for me to get back into the swing of things and as a result came across a minor blockage in the writing department. You see my writing process is a little adhoc or chaotic to say the least. I usually come across a topic for a post while studying, talking to someone or even just washing the dishes. A thought pops into my head like a little seed and as the day or days proceed, it slowly grows and forms until it finds it’s way to the surface and by the time I sit down to write, it’s all in my head ready to go. So you can imagine my terror when after arriving back in London for a few days, nothing came to me. I mean NOTHING at all!
Then a friend of mine mentioned to me that she was toying with the idea of growing a living wall. Upon discussing the topic I then remembered the magnificent home that I visited while on the Living Etc House Tour back in March owned by Mark Christophers – who once owned the West Cornish Pasty Company.
This home was a 4 storey Victorian terraced house in West London that was designed by architect Gianni Botford. I made a point to linger in the house for as long as I could, taking in every detail. I wanted to work out what it was that made this house so amazing. Here are some of the notes I took.
You can read and see more in the article featured in Living Etc June 2012. So what do you think? Do you like the house? Is there anything that you would change? I’d love you know. Enjoy your day and I’ll be back tomorrow. xD
