Hooray for maximalism
Sun. January 27, 2019
We read an excellent article in yesterday’s Telegraph by Anna Tyzack – under the title Does your house pass the posh test? it included lots of lovely quotes. According to Nicky Haslam. “People don’t fill their rooms with enough furniture these days,” and he complains, “furniture should be touching or at least closely positioned all round the room.” He also advocates filling your house with books and striving for the unfitted kitchen He says “A kitchen should look like any other room that happens to have a stove in it,”. He also advocates that every room should have at least one antique – hooray! although of course this really should be considered as a starting point. I’m not sure what Ms Tyzack’s would have to say about the Bowen’s house, as seen here (sitting room clutter and sleepy nine year old boy) early on a blustery January Sunday morning perhaps we might even pass the posh test!
