Notes on Decorating

Talented designers who can design beautiful rooms with a broad aesthetic range often create design books that make a gamut of readers happy, regardless of their own personal style. Such is the case with Markham Robert's second book, Markham Roberts: Notes on Decorating. If you're searching for a book you can look at again and again, I can highly recommend!  


My copy was compliments of Vendome Press, who also published his first book,

This book is full of 250 images!! Here are some snaps of some of my favorite rooms.

There are sophisticated rooms with a chic and elegant vibe. 

Along with those that are relaxed and laid back. I'm always partial to any room that makes 
me feel like I'm on vacation. 

So if you need a little escape and want a gorgeous, versatile design book to add your library, check out Markham Roberts: Notes on Decorating

Photowall of Sweden - 25% discount!

Until last week, there wasn't one bit of wall covering in my home.  That all changed when PHOTOWALL of Sweden gifted me with a wallpaper or wall mural of my choosing.  I decided the master bedroom was the place to bring in some pattern and creating interest on the wall behind the bed was the way to go. I've always loved cloud wallpaper and what drew me to Photowall's version, Cradled in Clouds, was that in came in a beautiful beige/taupe tone labeled Pastel.  

I love how the cloud pattern plays off the drapes.

Time for new bedding!!  But you know the drill, change one thing and you need to change other things :)

The process for ordering is simple - you enter in the dimensions you need and then move the field over the section you want.

Next is choosing either Standard or Premium wallpaper.

I went with the Premium which has a nice matte finish. It's made of a non-woven material and has a further layer added to it to which makes the material scratch-resistant,  non-reflective and wipable. 

Photowall delivers worldwide and uses DHL for US delivery.  Love DHL, by the way, because they contact you via email/text and let you change your delivery date and also pick the option for no signature required.  

The wallpaper paste (powder form) comes with the mural and there is a kit you can order if you don't already have the tools you'll need.  The panels are numbered and they have a great video you can watch. The key is to get that first panel level and straight. 

The quality of the mural is excellent and I couldn't be happier with it!  If you were like me and wanted a mural or wallpaper but weren't ready to take the plunge, PHOTOWALL is giving My Notting Hill readers a 25% discount for the next 30 days only.  Just enter the coupon code mynottinghill2020. 

If you're not interested in wallpaper, almost all of their images can be also made as a Canvas Print, Framed Print or Poster.  Here's some of the ones I favorited when I was trying to decide on an option.

My Notting Hill readers receive a 25% discount for the next 30 days.  Just enter the coupon code mynottinghill2020.

More Decorating from Tom Scheerer

Tom Scheerer: More Decorating is out and if you loved his first book, you'll love this one even more 😍!  Ever since I received my copy compliments of Vendome Press, I've been pouring through it every few days.  Divided in to three sections, Town, Summer and The Tropics, it features 16 of his latest projects. The book is beautifully designed and full of so many double page layouts that allow you to feel like you're peering right in to the room. Along with the perfection of the photography by Francesco Lagnese, the art-layout/direction is just sooo good.
