Got the keys to my dream rainbow home 😍🏡🌈 (...lol just kidding but maybe one day) Anyone else out there trying to buy their dream home? If you are, firstly, I feel your struggle but more importantly, I have some exciting news... @marksandspencer bank offer a mortgage range which helps first time buyers get on the property ladder 🙌🏼 It allows up to 4 borrowers to buy a home together, so it’s a perfect match for friends, family etc. #MortgageMate So... who’s up for going in with me? I can provide great recommendations if you do the washing up 😂💕 #Ad
“Que nadie calle tu verdad,
que nadie te ahogue el corazón,
que nadie te haga más llorar,
hundiéndote en silencio.
Que nadie te obligue a morir,
cortando tus alas al volar
que vuelvan tus ganas de vivir”. 💜
Argyll House looking a bit gothic earlier today but if only those walls could talk.
This is one of the oldest buildings on the King’s Road, having been built in 1723 by Hugenot merchant John Pierene.
For his new house, Pierene, aka Perrin, commissioned a Palladian design from the Venetian architect Giacomo Leoni, and Leoni had a patron in Lord Burlington.
So who lived there? Well, in the 18th century, the Duke of Argyll, who gave his name to the property, but it’s most glamorous owner over the centuries is arguably Sybil Colefax. The @thechelseasociety points to her hosting Fred Astaire, Noel Coward, George Gershwin and Hillaire Belloc. Imagine the goings on! “It’s thought that Ernest and Wallace Simpson were introduced to the Prince of Wales here in 1935,” the Society reports.
And while Lady Colefax was blousy chintz and rooting around forgotten rooms in country houses for mismatched furniture, next door lived Syrie Maugham, famed for championing the all-white interior.
But there’s more. After Lady Colefax came Maria Harrison, socialite who died in 2004 aged 101. She had escaped Latvia after the Bolshevik revolution, moved to London via Germany, became firm friends with Joyce Grenfell, and when she was naturalised the Duke of Devonshire and Harold Macmillan were on hand as witnesses. Nancy Lancaster was also a friend.
It is presently owned by the Marquess of Normanby. Might benefit from having that London grime washed off - or is that awfully bourgeois of me to say?
Embracing the autumnal vibes but my poor, frozen legs didn't get the memo 😂🤦🏼♀️☃️ Apart from dressing like a pumpkin, my other recent obsession has been the @perrier and Juice cans. The new collection contains only 46 calories and is made up of 78% Perrier sparkling natural mineral water, 17% fruit juice and some natural flavourings so it's an amazing healthier alternative to sugary soft drinks. I'm drinking the Peach and Cherry one here and it's basically heaven in a can 😍💕 AD #PERRIER &JUICE #GoForTheExtraordinaire
