Mantel Display



 This picture of George Bernard Shaw’s mantel caught my eye when I was researching author’s writing huts

Mantel George Bernard Shaw

 A famous quote of his gives a little insight into the choice of pictures…

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the conditions that surround him… The unreasonable man adapts surrounding conditions to himself… All progress depends on the unreasonable man.”


On Nicky Haslam’s sitting room mantelpiece,

the display includes photos of some of his favorite people, some small crystal vases and cupcake egg timers…

I love this display from Peter Hinwood’s London home (probably has something to do with the color green!)…
