So we’re not massive gamblers here in Casa MacDonald (in fact I don’t think I’ve ever won anything I’ve bet on) but we’ve been heading to the Wednesday night races at Happy Valley with friends most weeks lately.
It is the most incredible setting for a racecourse, surrounded by the Peak on one side and a wall of skyscrapers on the other (view from Wooloomooloo in Wan Chai, the best roof terrace in town):
The Chinese LOVE to gamble, so there’s always a packed crowd and fab atmosphere:
Anyway, so I was pondering the old horseys the other day and it brought to mind two things: 1) summer days spent in Blighty’s gorgeous countryside; 2) TWEEEEEEED!
I have a taupe herringbone blazer I picked up in Buenos Aires about 9 years ago, which I still get compliments on every time I wear it – looks a little like this!
So whether it’s twill, houndstooth, herringbone, barleycorn or striped, any form of tweed decor is likely to get me all in a tizzy.
So here’s what you’re really here for: the best tweed interiors inspo piccies out there right now. Loving these monochrome houndstooth lovelies on the LHS here:
And a little tweedy accent can also do the business (Laura M, this one’s for you!):
Slate and coral twill (check out the nailhead trim!!) both making my knees weak as upholstery options…
And lastly two looks showcasing a Midcentury Modern and a more ornate trad vibe – tweed is up for anything!
So what do y’all think? Are you a fan or is it a bit blah for you?!
