Right at home - 1896 London travel guide

This is an usual Right at home post: it is not about something someone bought from my shop, but about something I bought for a dear friend of mine.

This friend and I have many things in common (we even joke sometimes that we are soul sisters) and one of them is the love for beautiful old things. So, a couple of months ago, when I stumbled upon a 1896 London travel guide, I immediately thought of her. That little book combined three of the things she loves the most (old+travel+London) and had to be hers. And now it is. It left Boston in a USPS box, crossed the Atlantic and got to London. And it looks right at home.

P.S.2: How amazing is that wallpaper in her beautiful London apartment?

This is the sixth post on the series "Right at home".


  1. one of the best presents I've ever got, may I add!

  2. what a sweet gift and a lovely book!
