This is my friend Dinah Wood’s house in Highbury and I love all of the items in this kitchen – the pans, sieves and ladles hanging against that warm plaster wall above the delft tiles and marble worktop, the mochaware stuffed with cutlery and wooden spoons, and the copper tap arching over the butler sink. The appearance of these bright strawberries on that particular day was a fortuitous addition, and the colander of vegetables looked as though they had just been picked from a garden.
