Entrance hall happy recollections.

I shall never forget the first year my mother planted delphiniums. The rich African soil, the hot sun and the gentle rain must have offered them the perfect haven to grow into the majestic giants that I so fondly remember towering magnificently over me as a young girl. I remember being bedazzled by the brilliant blues that they offered up; lapis lazuli, cobalt, cerulian blue and then some with a small flourish of soft butter cream in their centres. 

What a wonderful lesson in the importance of structure, colour and scale at such an early age. Of course, I didn’t realise it then, but I am grateful to nature for her tutorship in beauty and to my mother for planting delphiniums, of course!

Be sure to fill your home with wonderful memories of all kinds, in this way you will create a base of happiness and strength.
