With the announcement that the television classic “Through the Keyhole” is returning to television screens in Britain (non-English readers will have no clue what I’m talking about whilst English readers will remember host Lloyd Grossman’s mesmerizingly posh accent like it was yesterday), I thought it might be appropriate to do an interiors post according to personalities.

I’ve been trawling through the internet this Sunday morning, looking at dreamy decors. By mixing and matching photographs I found from all corners of the online interiors world, I bring you Messy Nessy’s top 10 Favourite Decorative Themes… (because I am so obviously an interior decorating expert).

A flea market fanatic… you won’t catch these guys in IKEA.

Think Great Expectations.


Kate Moss on the run?

With Robinson Crusoe.
