Going Smaller in the City

I stopped adding posts in 2018 but this surprise lockdown provided a lot of time to reflect, clean out and revisit the things I really love – and I love decor. In my own space I treat it like a production. Items move around, colour highlights come and go, art disappears and gets replaced with…
