All Things Anglophile – Part 2

Brits I Love I totally want to be Nigella Lawson‘s BFF, she seems to live life with such relish.

Nigella and I would obviously hang out with Jamie Oliver as well.

Helen Mirren is a wonderful example of beauty, bawdiness and confidence.

These guys have an amazing longevity of coolness

This guy makes me laugh

This guy makes me swoon

This guy sang my favorite childhood song

I think this guy is overrated and not terribly interesting, but I will humor those of you that think otherwise.

This lady is another example of living a stylish life.  I would love to have had her as a governess or magical nanny.

She is amazingly talented

She is another candidate for BFF

I have already shared how I love her particular brand of batshit crazy

I totally don’t get the Doctor Who phenomenon, but again, I will humor those of you who do.

First I thought he was batshit crazy as well, now I think more crazy like a fox.

My husband’s favorite Brit and favorite Elvis.

Who did I forget?

Still more Anglophile mania, see you tomorrow.

PS – I just realized I forgot Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen – consider them added for their fashion brilliance/innovation.

About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.
