No surface escapes French artist Nathalie Lete distinctive hand, linen tea towels included. 

I love the intro words by Rupert Thomas in this month's The World of Interiors special kitchen and bathroom supplement issue.

Not only fit for purpose, all are good looking enough to enjoy living for decades, if not quite for centuries"

Striking design that brings nature indoors

As we gradually find our way into Autumn, the winds of changes remind us of the green and gracious space around us. However as the leaves start to fall down, we encourage ourselves to bring the leaves indoors and recreate what is outside. In the October 2012 issue of Homes and Gardens magazine, we see the Dill Chinoiserie by Michael Angove as a part of the accessories list inspired by sylvan scenes. Why not visit Avenida Home for Dill Chinoiserie placemats and drinks coasters.
