Excessive pillows of all shapes and sizes on a bed, all neatly placed and looking so totally fake and regimental. Whose design formula was this and where do they go at night?

Why does everyone say Gloomy London? Yes it rains in the UK but in the past 5 years I have been in London many times (from Canada) and the weather was fabulous each time! Your flat is so calm and clean lined with character - really lovely. I wouldn't call it an all American interior at all?? It's very European - much more stylish than anything in the US.

In Canada it's simple-you take off your shoes at the door and most guests bring alternative footwear for inside or are prepared to walk in stockinged or bare feet. Just think of a Canadian winter? Would you want people walking all over your house with huge snow boots? Mud, snow, dirt brought in from the cold? Also I personally resent those who wear stiletto heels and proceed to grind them into my wooden floor as if it's their right. I've lived in a lot of countries and I would say most take off their shoes at the door unless their host says not to.
