Silk ruffled curtains in the bath, corgis under the table and a perfect rug in every room. How about stylist Mieke Ten Have’s home featured in the March ’19 AD?
I just love this:
“We brought only a few basics up with us, namely our two dogs, some champagne on ice, and boxes of dishes I had pulled from their hiding places under sofas and dressers; they had long outgrown the confines of our china cabinet. Calling myself a collector would be a polite euphemism for what I really am: a pack rat. So my first endeavor was carefully unwrapping cobalt transferware, sets of artichoke and oyster plates, Wedgwood tea services, and lusterware pitchers to fill the glass-fronted cupboards in what would eventually become our kitchen. Heat, water, oven, and refrigerator be damned; at least I had my plates in order.”
