My three favourites from Elle Decor's 2011's blogger's choice

I love all of the shelter magazines.... online and in print.... and especially Elle Decor. Loved their top picks for 2011. Here are my three favourites.

First up, Lynn Nesbit's library (September issue). The sconces and orange velvet chairs are a subtle mix of old and new... and those books are just waiting to be looked at!!

Second is this beautiful office of Claiborne Swanson Frank (November issue)... working from home would be a pleasure in this beautiful space... I like the Moroccan inspired rug and the art work - it's just fresh and airy:

Finally, my third pick is this amazing Parisian apartment by Jean-Louis Deniot (May issue). I love the panelling which makes the room so elegant and chic and I adore the light fixture:

Converted millhouse, Hampshire

Reading this morning's Sunday Telegraph, and checking out the "property" section I was immediately drawn to this beautiful converted millhouse in Hampshire owned by Deborah and Ric Medhurst, the owners of the childrenswear label No Added Sugar.

The couple have filled their home with contemporary art, amassed over the past decade, with pieces from Banksy, Gary Hume and Tracey Emin.

It's not all contemporary though - I love the antique armchairs but most of all the place is covered with books!
