Secret Messages sale is (quietly) on!
You have to admire a shop that makes the switch before anyone else. Secret Messages Interiors in Buckingham was an elegant gunmetal grey for a while. then everyone else cottoned on and it wasn’t fun any more. So now they’re a fetching pistachio green instead.
I like pottering around North Buckinghamshire, where the pace of life is slower, the shops are quirky (I’m guessing the proximity to Milton Keynes helps this creativity along) and people appreciate a good thing coming along when they see it.
Secret Messages Interiors have only been open for shy of two years, but they’ve made a lasting impression on Buckingham and the local area, partly because owners Rob and Krys are incredibly likeable and flamboyant, and partly because they stock stuff that would sit as happily in Spitalfields as rural Bucks.
I had come up to see the new White Room which, um, isn’t white yet. So until that’s completed, have a little visual treat of the changing rooms at this funky interiors haven.
And if you can’t make it to Buckingham (tis a bit of a schlep from Wantage or Gerrard’s Cross I grant you), do a cheeky sofa surf instead and catch the sale before it ends at the end of the month.
