The second thing I noticed? A chalk board with some tasty delights, then a shiny shiny coffee machine and a very cosy looking set of tables and chairs. So already that's most of my favourite things ticked off on my list. The brightly coloured, tasseled lucite lampshades sealed the deal.
The name "Out of Town" is a reference to the much loved television programme of the same name. The presenter Jack Hargreaves, would talk about all matters of country and rural pursuits without being overly sentimental or nostalgic and most importantly it was always from from the comfort of his 'shed.'
As Peter told me "we have, hopefully, created a room which could be anybodies own private space....a shed, study or corner of a living room where surrounded by your favorite things you can be at ease, relax, read the papers, have a coffee or just waste time!"
I came away with these two gems, both catalogues from the grandest of the London department stores Fortnum and Mason.
Dainty dessert biscuit anyone?
