Introducing … New Contributor Louise to This Is Glamorous

IF YOU FOLLOW ALONG on Instagram, you may remember a beautiful grid of tiny illustrations featured there nearly a year ago; they were done by Interior Designer & Illustrator, Louise, who is currently based in Edinburgh. After the pleasure of a few lunches and cosy chats over wine in favourite pubs, it became clear that Louise would be a wonderful addition to This Is Glamorous and recently made her debut as Interiors Editor.

Read her articles on Gustavian stylebeautiful pink rooms to fall in love with, and most recently, an At Home With featuring Melissa Odabash, if you have not done so already. We are thrilled to welcome Louise as part of the TIG family and know you will love her work as much as well do.

And in other exciting news, some of your very favourites from shop.thisisglamorous.com & Belgrave Crescent are back and available for Pre-Order . . .

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

WE PAINTED THE LIVING this weekend, Farrow & Ball’s Middleton Pink, and it turned out to be rather disastrous. We ended up having to pick up new paint the next day and repaint everything, despite all my research pointing to the colour being pale powdery perfection, the prettiest and most delicate pink. We’re not certain what went wrong, but perhaps a combination of the wall texture and room lighting were to blame in making the colour appear a vivid candy floss pink that somehow even managed to clash with the fireplace mantle, which is cream. Décor misadventures aside, everything else was rather perfect, with sunset walks and Spanish wine in the last golden light of day; old stone houses and English roses and roaring fires and the feeling of being really very happy.
