Usually at this time of year we enjoy a little indian summer – lots of warmer than expected weather with no rain and just a little breeze. Nowhere near as balmy as a hot summer day, but good enough for a picnic in the park on a Sunday or a bar-b-que on the patio with chums. Of course the nights drawing in very early does rather put paid to the longer wine guzzling that might occur in high summer! However, as this year offers no prospect of an indian summer, thoughts are racing towards springtime decorating and refurnishing. I’ve seen some amazing ideas with fabulous bight, modern and inspring colour schemes. Gone – thank heavens – is that grim grey, grey and black and grey, black and red theme that seemed to take over most of Britain for a few years! Now it’s colour popping up at every opportunity, and we’re the better for that, defninitely!
