I spent a couple of hours on a final inspiration mission this week, leaving the guys beavering away on site whilst I explored a fab little area of Exeter called Magdelene Road. It so reminded me of my beloved Burton Rd in West Didsbury Lots of independent shops: a greengrocers, florist, deli, fishmongers, an adorable cafe / home shop called Bel Green and also Duo, an interiors fabric emporium where I made a final decision on colours and the scheme for our Half Built House.
Our very brave contributor Chris then met me at Amos Lighting, a sparklingly glamorous showroom close to his house (which of course he was FORBIDDEN to visit!). It was a chance for me to see whether I was on the right track with my instincts as to what he and Amie like design-wise….. people’s lighting choices are an excellent indicator as to what they generally what for their homes. Generally.
Another week to go and we’ll know for sure….. and you lot will know sometime in June!
