One of Angel + Blume’s projects is in 25 Beautiful Homes this month and Gail Abbott and Mark Scott have done a great job with the styling and photography respectively. A huge thank you to Annalise and Justin who allowed their home to be photographed. The project is on our website but here are a few of the images – we hope you like them!

We can’t wait for the new exhibition at Lynne Strover Gallery which opens with a private view this Sunday. We’ve had a sneak preview already and both the landscape paintings (which we know Ann Armitage for) and the newer still life paintings are absolutely gorgeous and we think we will be a great investment.

Angel + Blume will be at the opening from about 2pm onwards and hope to see you there. Otherwise the show is open until early June.

For more information and further images take a look at the Lynne Strover Gallery website.

I briefly visited the International Art Fair at the Royal College of Art of Saturday and was amazed at the number of stands and the range of work there. As ever, it reminded me how difficult it is to choose art, particularly when confronted with such variety, and just like shopping, much depends on the quality of the stand and the way that the work is presented. My golden rules with picking art, both for myself and as part of an interior design project, is to know your style before you start looking and to ensure that you really LOVE the piece before you buy. Try not to buy a piece based on size of space you want to fill or colour of the room – you run the risk of ending up with a compromise.

Of course I would say that my friend Lynne Strover, who runs the truly wonderful Strover Gallery in Fen Ditton had the best stand but I was also delighted to see that she has found a wonderful new artist Rosemary Vanns and I was/am sorely tempted by her work.

Other stands that for me were worth noting were the Lime Tree Gallery based in Suffolk (Long Melford) and Bristol
