Here’s the thing – when you decorate in an eclectic fashion it takes time to pull together the look. There isn’t a one stop shop (even mine) that has everything you need from vintage to art, to beautiful rugs, to outdoor kitchens. The thing about being in a rush or panic to finish a space is that you end up compromising with things. I don’t know about you guys but I tend not to spend cash on temporary stuff that I know I will replace within a year to two. I would rather do without, that is personal obviously. Today for #AAHouseCrush I’ve put together a slide show of images by people who decorate with things that they love, whether that’s a favourite dress, personal collections or quirky flea market find. Thanks to everyone for sharing your fab homes with us!

I’m whizzing to the store to sign all my new books which have just arrived and then it’s off to Heathrow for a night flight to Asia. Byeee.
