Our weekend holiday house in Sussex really tied in with my Are you over-propped? post from Wednesday and the Grayson Perry docs about class tribes and taste I know some of you have been enjoying. In fact I was watching it on 4OD while I snapped some photos from around the house.
We arrived in the dark on Friday night so it wasn't till the morning that I noticed how fully propped this place was with what I call 'Rustic Beach House Chic'. So I played an instagram game, asking people to guess certain items and yes, there was a row of pebbles, a driftwood sculpture, a random shell object, and blue & white stripes aplenty.
As I was doing it, I started to feel a little bit uneasy; I hoped if the owner ever saw it, she wouldn't be offended, and see it as a bit of fun. It was such a lovely cosy house, and it is surely the law to decorate your beach house like this isn't it? I think if I had a beach house (one can dream), though shabby chic is not at all my taste, I might be compelled to buy some kind of large driftwood fish too!
Lovely to get away, just us. Sunny (thanks for your wishes) but bloody windy!
Hope you all had lovely weekends.
