Train of thought
We've got holidays on the brain, and we're blaming it at least a little bit on February's BBC Homes & Antiques magazine. The issue features a holiday home called The Dodo, which is made of two 1930s railway carriages linked together to form a house. The bedrooms retain original features like carriage lamps, leather safety straps, ventilation windows and compartment doors. It's an inspired, atmospheric reuse of resources that's almost too gorgeous to describe, so pick up the mag or have a look online in The Daily Mail for their recent feature on the same property.
