welcome to may

and I have a corker of a recipe that I serve as a dessert just about every time I have friends and family over. It’s especially great when I have very posh guests, in front of whom I really need to be schmick! Meet Italian affogato, and it’s the best! Affogato actually means ‘drowned’ and that’s how the ingredients work – they sort of drown each other which is why it’s so lipsmacking. If you’ve not done it before, have a go. Presentation is essential, of course. So use your best wine glasses and sit them on a plate, with room for a small espresso cup and a shot glass as well. Put two of the roundest scoops possible (presentation again) of vanilla ice-cream – or maybe caramel or choc chip…

moody & blue

There’s nothing wishy-washy about darker blues, such as midnight, royal and navy. They have a presence that demands to be noticed. Thankfully, these shades can be used effectively to underpin a wide range of schemes, from classic to maritime, sophisticated and country – even mid-century modern. And while we may refer to them as moody, the only mood they evoke is one of calm. LESSON NOTES Make a case for the bold and the beautiful – deepest blue! GO MONO Navy and white are a classic combination that will never date. Go for pared-down simplicity and you’ll be on a winner. OPT FOR REFINED ELEGANCE Couple darkest blue with timber, then for a look of time-honoured craftsmanship and character, introduce hand-tooled leather trunks or boxes. ROCK A CONTRAST Complement handsome moody blues with pinks, reds, corals, greens and…
