Is the title of one of 2 features we have in the April 2015 issue of Period Ideas magazine…

And ‘Mix & MATCH‘ is the other one….

So from the French Riviera village of St Paul de Vence, to the capital city of Northern Ireland, I just like to say a huge thanks to everyone involved here – and especially to Steve at Chilli Media for this great result too.

It’s out – small wee feature but I think you will be verrrrry pleased – the repro on my copy is stunning smile

And they gave us a wee plug for our spotty throw smile

Loving the way when you turn to the stockist, Natural Calico appears first under the N’s smile

So you can now read all about Janet & Ken’s staying power here – and see this Merino lambswool throws too…

Something old, something new.

One of the reasons we enjoy shooting homes is the fact that we get to meet great people – and also to work on a wide variety of homes.

This week we shot a stunning Irish cottage…
Janet and Ken Hamilton's traditional Irish cottage called 'Rose Cottage' in the County Down village of Greyabbey.
.. where the owners Janet and Ken initially bought the cottage as a holiday home – but loved it so much, they decided to move in permanently. They did some fairly major work to the cottage – the big things were removing the kitchen ceiling and taking it up to the rafters along with a new bathroom and creating an ensuite. Style-wise Janet went for an eclectic mix of vintage, original artwork, and a few more modern things.

Marie is the interior expert and she assures me, that that can be a tricky “look” to pull off – but that Janet did it to perfection:

She has done a superb job mixing wonderful old vintage items, with original artwork alongside a few modern touches.

So Marie & I had little to do here…
setting-up in the Living room
.. besides, re-arrange a few small things and then ask Janet to smile…

.. at the camera.

And it was the same throughout…
setting up in the kitchen
.. as they had also managed to create an almost naturally lit interior too.
So on my side, it was pretty much a case of pointing & shooting

.. with usually no more than one light being needed to add some sparkle.

Which was something new in something so old for me, as cottages like this can often be quite dark and therefore hard to light.

Anyway, just like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Janet and Ken for inviting us in – and we will keep you both posted in regards to which magazines it will be appearing in, over the years to come.
