I'm still in the UK and currently enjoying the Staffordshire countryside... how lovely is this?
There are so many quaint villages dotted around, each one has its own market day too. I love these markets, they are packed full of yummy fresh produce such as Cheshire cheeses, oatcakes and pies. There also seems to be a number of interior design stores and antique shops popping up around the Midlands. I went to Leek the other day and came across such a store that stocked lots of lovely Zoffany wallpapers and fabrics and in the window was this gorgeous London wallpaper:
This wallpaper is just calling out to be used - the colour and tone is just so subtle - it was love at first sight for me ;o)
