Are you as sad as I am that Downton Abbey has finished for the season? I discovered it late, and madly caught up by watching all of last season online…and now I don’t know how I lived without it so long! Hearing all of those beautiful English accents has me craving all things Brit, which brings me to the topic for today’s post. 91 Magazine is a UK-based online publication founded by Caroline Taylor of Patchwork Harmony, and reading the current issue has been going a long way to feeding my Anglophile leanings. There are tea-time accoutrements, a history of Cornishware, and the Queen’s wallpaper. Oh, and are there lovely interiors as well? Why yes, as a matter of fact, I am so glad you asked…

There is a wonderful piece on Jane Cumberbatch, the author and creator of the Pure Style look. Jane’s style is exactly what I am wishing for in my own home right now: white walls and floors, modern light fixtures, vintage furniture, and loads of fresh textiles in light springy colors like blue eggshell, aqua, and rose. Jane has such a masterful hand at blending old and new, so her interiors always look like places you’ll want to hang out in and enjoy.

I also loved the feature on Tif Fussell and her Seattle area home, nicknamed “Mossy Shed”. If you are not familiar, Tif is a Brit ex-pat, and it shines through in her quirky, handmade style. Let’s look at a bit more of Mossy Shed, shall we?

I am so jealous of the Airstream in her backyard, aren’t you?

I so wish we could all meet up this morning to go vintage hunting in London and then take a country drive out to a charming little tea shop for cream tea. ;) Ah well, maybe one day! There is so much more loveliness to be found, you can read issue 2 of 91 Magazine here. Have a lovely Wednesday, my dears! xoxo Laura
