it seems like every conversation i have had the last few weeks with friends, clients, and co-workers…everyone has asked “have you seen that beautiful house in england with all the color, pattern and chintz in the new AD?” a few moments later, they then say “don’t you love it?” well, yes i do, it’s fun and fabulous, and if you haven’t seen it, take a tour here

stibblinton house is in cambridge and it’s inhabited by a very young couple with two darling children. alice naylor-leyland is a fashion girl who rose to fame with her instagram and her legendary 30th birthday party thrown at their home. yes, she’s only thirty. the house was in her husband tom’s family- must be nice! 

it looks like a home that had been decorated many years ago by either john fowler or nancy lancaster. well, it wasn’t. this young couple did it all themselves. that’s what makes it so wonderful. 

so great to see a young couple with such great taste. it’s also so great to see they made it their own- it’s elegant and quirky, glamorous and cozy, it’s vibrant and subtle, and mostly, it’s just fun and fabulous!!
