spotlight on: lucyina moodie

I had one of those days yesterday… nothing particularly drastic, it was just a combination of Monday blues, feeling a bit run down and full of a summer cold, and not really being on board with city life and its packed-in-like-sardines commute. I had a sudden craving for a quiet corner of the countryside with a book (I haven’t read a proper novel in about a year, which is quite frankly ridiculous) and the kind of peace you get when you’re miles away from the daily hustle and bustle. Someone almost knocked me over in their haste to get into the train carriage first, and I so very nearly pulled a Carrie Bradshaw, circa ‘the post-it’: “You’re soooo busy!”
Anyway, there is a point to this demi-rant. One of my favourite interior stylists, Lucyina Moodie, has the power to bring calm to a room, as seen in her gorgeous portfolio. And just looking through the pictures brought calm to me as well, with her use of muted palettes, delicate flower arrangements and white floorboards. Then the pièce de résistance… the most idyllic little beach house ever. I’m imagining some kind of Sauvignon Blanc/marinated olives/Jack Johnson combo to go with it, and that, my friends, is pure perfection:
