I love the retro powder room. These images are from One Whitehall Place, The Royal Horseguards Hotel.

I love buttons. My grandmother used to have a jar of buttons and I could never resist going through it. It’s still the same today – if there’s a shop with a box of buttons I can’t help myself – I have to know if there’s an extraordinary button in there. I recently received aContinue reading
