A couple of miles up the road in Matlock, we stumbled on a wonderful cafe patisserie, Cool River. Sat in the sun we enjoyed a wonderful lunch. The patisserie are baked on the premises and well worth indulging in!
The purpose of the day was to seek out some inspiration in the antique shops that line the main road through the town. The Vintage Rooms is a favourite. A good rummage was had. I was inspired by the patina, the wearing away of layers of paint. And the colours of the day were definitely spring green, pillar box red and bright sky blue.
