OK so Decorex has been and gone. However, I did make it, just, by the skin of my teeth; so here is my delayed contribution, for what it's worth.
I have to say that, having been disappointed by last year's venue, I loved this year's
Access was made easy via a pretty slick arrangement of bus collections (mine from Richmond Station).
Clipboard huggers were positioned at great vantage points to direct and everyone was smiling. The bus was awash with chatter and I sat next to an author so the trip went quickly whilst we nattered. All good so far.
Rain hadn't dampened spirits on arrival at the tents. There was a lovely feeling of arriving at a party which I adored because it built excitement.
And inside didn't disappoint either, with plenty of places (albeit pricey)to rest your brain and feet and pick up a coffee/snack/meal/champagne.
And, with a coffee or two inside me off I went up and down the grids, stopping only when something gorgeous caught my eye...
which it did:

Glorious colours against the Copper & Silk Stand.
