Pig discovered in the New Forest

0ed79d054806a75f77fbb6bd235633c6IMG_2134IMG_1897IMG_2130IMG_0720IMG_2150Not a wild boar, but a very civilised pig. The Pig in Brockenhurst, to be more precise. Last weekend Lacewing Interiors upped sticks from Hampton in South West London, and headed off down the M3 to the New Forest.

The Pig is a chic country house hotel with restaurant serving homegrown/ locally foraged produce, everything sourced from their own garden and grounds or locally from within a 25 mile radius. The walled kitchen garden is an edible delight, the lilly pond enchanting and the house Farrow & Balled to within an inch of its life. But do you know what? It really works.

Apart from the food, what stood out for us was the fact that the whole hotel has been exquisitely art directed with a watchful eye to detail, and a heady mixture of classic antiques and vintage boho chic.

We were particularly taken by the clever use of Indian Bombay Chic items that blended seemlessly into this former Georgian Shooting Lodge  some 7,200 miles from India as the A380 flies. Not least because India is a destination we are very familiar with, and regularly source decorative items from  for Lacewing Interiors.

See our antique Indian Chariot Wheels, our vintage Indian Wooden Shrines and other items in our SHOP if you fancy this very distinctive look for yourself.

 

Indian Summers

So the first series of Indian Summers finally came to an end last night. No more balmy Sunday nights spent in Simla in the Himalayan foothills for us. Which is a pity, because there’s something strangely addictive about India.Never mind, with a little help from Lacewings Interiors you can re-create an Indian vibe of your own.

We fell in love with the whole subcontinent some years ago, and have travelled extensively throughout it since.

Rajasthan, inevitably, never ceases to enchant. And it is from here that we regularly source items like the ones you can find in our shop.
