Pretentious? Sting?

Steve Turner, Q, 1987

Sting holds court not in the music room with the sofas and grand piano nor in the oak-panelled study with the leather-topped desk and racing prints over the fireplace but in the kitchen. Not that this is any ordinary kitchen. Exposed oak beams run along the ceiling, pots and pans are hung from meat hooks over a stove in the centre and French windows open on to a well-tended garden fringed with tall trees.
