The house features beautiful scenery while being well integrated within its surrounding landscape. The balconies and floor to ceiling windows invite its guests to contemplate the beautiful garden outside and the exotic pool. Come on the living room design. It is a comfortable square enclave 3 steps lower than the ground floor, guarded by a heavy cast iron fireplace. The sectional roof of the Bowen Mountain House is part of its allure, with a pavilion-style design that creates an open living space below. What is so brilliant about this home is the look and feel of its design, and that it is intimately immersed into its natural environment. The exterior and interior design is diverse and this time we’ve posted lots of photos for you to check out and get inspired.
As you may know, I have an Etsy shop, which you can visit by clicking on the link on the right side of my posts. Etsy is great, and I have done well with it, but it has some limitations.
One of the biggest limitations is that anything you are selling has to be “vintage”, which in Etsy’s case, means more than 20 years old. As I am preparing to de-accession a number of pieces in anticipation of moving house, I find that some of the best items I’ve collected over the past few years are not yet 20 years old.
So it is with just a little fanfare, that I bring you Atelier Pigtown, which will be my additional on-line storefront presence. The shop will feature some of my handmade items, like pillows and pennants, as well as books, silver and silverplate items, French Ivory cutlery imported specially from the UK, china from my extensive collection of blue and white pieces, antique engravings, photographs and much, much more!Everything will be very well priced! As you may know, I am a confirmed Junk Whisperer and treasure hunter, so I’ve acquired almost all of the pieces at a great price, which I will pass along to you. Postage will be set at a flat fee. Small pieces will be $5.00 and larger pieces will be $10. If there’s a piece which is oddly shaped or very large, I will set the price on a per piece basis. Books I have found at the Book Thing will be sold for the cost of postage, since they were free to me (and they’re marked “free book”). As I add pieces, I will be putting up a little notice on my sidebar that there are new items.
I hope that you will find something on Atelier Pigtown that you will love as much as I have!
Even small London or city gardens, where space is a premium, can be transformed into a haven of architectural foliage and fabulous areas for summer dining and entertaining, adding not only value to the home, but a new dimension to living space. Remember, the garden should not be considered as a separate entity, but more as an extension of the living room. In our short summers it should be a magnet drawing family and friends to it at every available opportunity, and in winter the view should be one which serves to remind that spring is not too far away.

When my friend David asked me to check out the offerings at the big auction at Alex Cooper Auctioneers last week, I checked out the catalogue and then decided to join him for the preview.
One of the reasons that I was keen to go was that there were two oil paintings by Baltimore artist, Marie Tiffany. What made that so interesting is that she’s the person who introduced my English father to my American mother, almost 60 years ago. Marie is my mother’s second or third cousin, and was a fairly well-known painter here in town. I have some vague memories of her, and I remember seeing some of her paintings with her distinctive signature.
The other thing that was appealing about the two little oils was their subject matter. One is of Baltimore’s Tyson Street, a narrow street of tiny houses, each painted in a bright colour. For many years, my parents, along with a group of their friends, used to drive down to Tyson Street and go Christmas Caroling. When we got older, we went along, too. I have many happy memories of walking up and down this little street, singing carols right before Christmas on freezing cold and sometimes snowy nights. The second painting is of the Edgar Allan Poe house, just a few blocks from where I am living now. It’s a tiny house, and he didn’t live there for long, but it was his home when he died. I recognized the house immediately when I saw the listing in the auction catalogue, and the house looks exactly the same today. I love Poe, and two years ago, I shot a little video of his funeral procession. When he died, there was no service, so 160 years later, the City of Baltimore decided to give him an appropriate funeral, complete with horse-drawn hearse.
