the april issue of world of interiors

wonderful article on the horticulturist Valerie Finnis and her cluttered Nottinghamshire dower house - according to the article "nothing had ever been thrown away; each room was a repository of detritus of what had once been commonplace: for instance, piles of black-rimmed mourning letters and workboxes filled with horn buttons."

i love the servant bells in this picture...

and the invitations to gardening events wedged behind the antlers!

Creatures from the Naples Zoological Museum outshine the furniture from the Milan Furniture Fair.

I woke up this morning thinking that I needed to post something about this incredible issue...and here you are! Clever and delightful.

The bells were some of my favorites, too. All brilliant stuff, isn't it?
