Elegant British baby names. These beautiful baby names for boys and girls would all feel at home lighting the stage in an Oscar Wilde play, or gracing a rural stately home. In fact, stick "Lady" or "Lord" in front of any of them and see how they just roll off the tongue. http://www.britishbabynames.com/blog/2011/11/upright-elegance.html

Favourite colour (so far!) for lounge walls. Card Room Green by Farrow & Ball. This colour is named after the study-like rooms much favoured in the Victorian period and is unapologetic in its masculine feel. It really comes alive when contrasted with a warm neutral like Fawn or Stony Ground, as used in Victorian homes, but feels more powerful and contemporary when used with no contrasts at all. Dark Tones Undercoat.
