Hello everyone, I’m afraid it’s been a while since my last post as I have been out of the office for a while, but I’m back and now and have some fantastic posts coming up.
I was in the middle of sorting through some bits at home and whilst doing so, I came across these original needlecraft books from the 1950’s; there seems to be a vintage theme on my blog at the moment! They belonged to my grandmother, who was crazy about needlecraft, and I think they’re fantastic. The front cover of the first image is especially interesting as 50’s interiors are so fashionable, people are paying a lot of money to buy original pieces like this; especially the sideboard. The 1950’s paint swatch card is from Erwinhouse, I thought it would be interesting to see all the colours together. Most of them are a bit heavy for my taste but I am a fan of the Chelsea gray, I could see this one amongst the Farrow & Ball colours.
