English Country Living

December 17th, 2012

First of all, pardon my unexpected absence last week. I had a last minute trip to Kansas (yes, Kansas) present itself to me and I was whisked off to the heartland without much notice. While I was away from here, one of the highlights of my week was watching The Holiday all cozy in bed with a glass of red wine in hand while candles flickered in the room. Have you seen it? Do you melt for Jude Law’s character like I do? Are you ever charmed by Kate Winslet’s home, too? All of which got me thinking of darling British homes, when I remembered this beauty from the Rue archives. Christina Strutt’s English abode:

And one from Christina’s shop, Cabbages & Roses, ┬ájust for good measure:

Sometimes it’s nice to let your aesthetic wander to a place far from its home, don’t you think?

P.S. And if you haven’t already seen The Holiday, you must. I guarantee you’ll add it to your yearly holiday routine!
