Clearly a bossy bottom. He is also an invention. His accent is completely fake; he is working class. Although he appears to live in a fancy townhouse, you have to remember this is Scotland. I bet his townhouse is worth less than a 1 bedroom in brixton.
I hope he has a sugar daddy buggering him every night though. I mean good on the queen for giving it a go, and atleast he doesnt lie about the fact he isnt really posh (in the above video). But the fake accent gets to me I have to say.

A little darker yes, but not dark brown or black contrasted with very golden blonde hair. Besides fact we're speaking about a young man with some what thick eyebrows reinforces that point.

It seems he wants to be an 'influencer' in the interior design space. If so, he's got to have a style and be confident about it. This will do for now.

Scones have been around for ages, they are basically rather like "drop" biscuits or other sorts of spoon breads/cakes. Only difference is until baking powder was available commercially (for home use) most scones were flat sort of griddle cakes, and or you had to get them from a bakery. The wealthy of course had armies of cooks and even stand alone bakers in their homes who could provide.

As with many other things scones sold in USA are either overly sweet (from addition of masses of sugar), or rather dry and bland. What is offered in UK or other parts of world is usually vastly different.
Scones usually were served as part of a cream tea taking place of bread and jam. As such traditionally scones aren't that sweet because it is presumed one is going to have them with jam.

Afternoon tea is normally a far more substantial meal consisting of sandwiches (of all sorts), scones, bread and jam, etc... In days when dinner was eaten quite late in evening (by modern standards), afternoon tea served between say 3 pm and 5 pm took the hunger edge off.
Keeping with theme of this thread there is also evening or high tea, this was a more substantial meal served between 5 pm and 7 pm. What you called this meal largely determined your social class.
Working and even middle class ate their main meal at noon and called it dinner. OTOH upper classes who ate "dinner" at 7 pm or later called their noon meal luncheon or just "lunch". Thus evening/high tea either was a bit of something to keep one going until dinner later that evening, or was a light last meal of the day.
All over UK school children are served "dinner" by "dinner ladies" in cafeterias at noon. Similarly in an office "Sir" would go to luncheon at noon, while workers ate their dinner. There is a hilarious episode of "Are You Being Served" where the pompous Capt. Peacock keeps correcting Miss Brahms about the correct use of "dinner" instead of "lunch". This is until later when the good Captain gets so angry about something he moans about missing his "dinner", to which Miss Brahms points out "got so upset he forget he was middle class...."
In any event all this tea business became necessary because even today (as anyone who travels in Europe can attest) many cultures have their dinner or whatever final meal of day rather late by American standards. In France for instance it isn't unheard of to make dinner reservations or be invited to a dinner party for after 7 pm or even 8:3O pm

I still can't take his work seriously, however calm and benevolent a presence his videos shed into my life. He doesn't seem to know very much about the things he talks about, beyond what you could pick up from googling or reading magazine articles. He comes across as an earnest boy, smoothing over the gaps in his knowledge with effusive words but betraying his basic amateurishness with frequent nervous swallowing, lip-smacking, fidgeting, and that stance where he keeps his hands in his pockets with his leg bent. Maybe he'll improve with time, but his taste is already sclerotic. He thinks adding a tablespoon of brown sugar to a cocktail is "a bit naughty." It drives me crazy that he keeps purring over how he painted over all his cherry and walnut furniture, resulting in the pale, matte surroundings that he craves.
The transatlantic dame next door also needs more personality. Her taste is good and her Baby Jane makeup job holds promise, but she never cuts loose. Soaking the onions to reduce their flavor is symptomatic of her contribution. You want her to find her inner Ann Richards and drop the genteel New Town locutions she's layered on like her mascara, but young Nicolas has found his true soulmate in her.

[quote] People used to know what to do without having to be told.
No, people were always told. The publishing of etiquette books in the 19th C was a big and lucrative business. People used the surnames of popular etiquette books as readily understood shorthand for the titles; there were different levels of etiquette books, each positioned to address the position one or two rungs up from the intended audience. Social place was reinforced by books such as Burke's Peerage which was published from 1826 at a time when industrialization was firmly in place but the place of industrialists was challenged: money alone was no longer enough to establish someone's place in society. Etiquette books and rules and allied popular interests have always been based on the idea that manners are gracious living are "dying." If they were not endangered, there would be no book sales, no lectures, no useless little twits like this one trying to establish his sad little brand. Etiquette always focuses most on the things that are already water over the dam: the irretrievable. Like old fussy queens complaining that young bucks (not young Regency bucks) have lost the art of cursive writing! Of communicating in paragraphs! Of long telephone conversations!
Etiquette is more than anything a trade, holding out knowledge of the arcane ways of our "social betters," and this silly fellow with bespoke marbles in his mouth is overreaching on his slim knowledge to try to make a few coins of one sort or another, a feather in has cap.
Too bad he's humorless, sexless, and pathetic.

My boyfriend and I discovered him two nights ago; we watched the tea sandwiches video.
I was ready to throw up from his womanliness at first, but then I really got into it. Not in a sexual way, but in a “this kid has no idea how hilarious he is” kind of way. Unknowing camp, as someone put it up thread. I actually have never thought to make my own lemon-dill butter, but now I’m seriously contemplating it.
I was aghast when he started sawing through the sandwiches with his sharp knife, though. Dear lord. Use a serrated bread knife, sweetheart!

I don't think you need unpasteurized milk for clotted cream. You can make it yourself, actually. It's just heavy cream cooked low and slow. Chef John's recipe says "not ultra-pasteurized" (cream).
|by Anonymous||reply 254||02/01/2021|
There is serious debate on matter of making clotted cream from pasteurized or even ultra pasteurized milk. For some nothing tastes better than clotted cream from raw milk, anything else is simply a poor reproduction.
That being said if you cannot get raw milk, then that's it, you have to deal with what is at hand.

I also saw the skincare one, and thought what the hell is rubbing that stone against his face supposed to do? The Q&A video was somewhat interesting though.

OMFG! He's the real deal. His review of that fantastic book about Bunny Mellon's gardens is spot-on. I like this kid, despite that I'm neither into Twinks nor his particular Twee style. His calm, measured, confident voice is ASMR material. He certainly has lost any trace of a Scottish accent, so at least the rest of the English-speaking world can understand him. And his dog is white and fluffy, because of course. He reminds me so much of someone I knew years ago.
Having major flashbacks now to when in 1982 when I was 21, I managed to get a scholarship for a summer program at University of St Andrews in Scotland. My Scottish dorm mate was just like this guy -- delicate features, pleasant, calm, and creative, but trying to escape whatever the fuck hellhole culture of the wee coal mining town in the North he was from. I just couldn't understand him, not at first. And he was trying to lose his accent while recreating himself with the goal of moving to London. I was totally out (I'm from the Bay Area), but he was absolutely not. No idea what happened to him.

He appears to be someone who has completely invented himself. People like that fascinate me. I would put someone like Tim Gunn in that same category. (Maybe someone like Joan Crawford as well). People who invent themselves discard their upbringing, discard their natural accents, get rid of everything that reminds them of their childhoods and then stride out into the world, daring others to challenge the persona they have created for themselves. I think it has to take a great deal of courage, or a great deal of bravado to do that. I imagine that in most cases, it also represents a person whose childhood was very unhappy or whose circumstances embarrassed him or her. It may be more common among gay people than among straight people. There is a guardedness to such people though. I can't imagine that they easily let other people into their confidence. Too much of their self-image is bound up in the projection of the transformation they have made, and an unwitting slip might bring the whole thing crashing down.

When this thread began I was put in mind of a youngish man who years ago wrote an etiquette column in the London 'Times', no less. Confidently he put correspondents right about all manner of social anxieties. Evidently a 'confirmed bachelor' who in pictures looked somewhat over-dressed.
Eventually he committed suicide by throwing himself from the high window of his 'good' London address. It turned out he'd attended a comprehensive school, and had no wish to keep in contact with his (I suppose 'humble') background. Disjunct painfully unsustainable, perhaps.

Yes, the name came back to me later. 'Not proven' - but a known history of depression, a previous suicide attempt, and avowed money worries point to the sad possibility that he took his own life in a bleak dark moment.
A similar ambiguity obtained around the death of Kenneth Williams. I can understand why there's often an unwillingness to record a death as suicide, and respect that it wasn't actually applied in this case.

What many do not realize is getting RP down is only part of battle in sounding posh. One requires necessary "gentility" that goes with good breeding in order to truly pull things off.
Actors, news readers, politicians and others who recite from scripts written by others don't have to worry. But someone going about in society wanting to impress or whatever needs to get things down pat.
At basic level gentility in terms of speaking substitutes a common word for something less so. "Remain" instead of "stay". "Step" instead of "walk". Knowing when to use "one" instead of "I"....
To those brought up or learned at a very early age both RP and in a certain background these things flow easily and unforced. Conversation flows naturally, if not a bit high and mighty sounding to some ears. The opposite not only sounds silly but reinforces the person is NQOCD
Pygmalion and later My Fair Lady is an excellent example. Though Eliza Doolittle was heavily coached in RP, her grammar and choice of words give game away.

His color palette is all soft pastels, and mostly the color I call "flesh pink". I have a friend who has a side business as a floral designer and this is also her palette. It's not my favorite, at least for flowers. I like more vivid colors. A deep red rose, a stunning deep blue delphinium, a bright yellow black eyed susan, a bright white magnolia. But it's true that this narrow pastel palette is "safer". Nothing would stick out and "offend" an overly sensitive eye.

An aspirational Brit living in Scotland? One of the soft boys they made fun of in the council houses, His grandmother turned him into a girl …. not that there's anything wrong with that … and his dreams were formed on television and in the houses of men he lived on. Now he is ready to become a "brand," his own invention, a male Nigella Lawson. Beauty, joy and elegance can be yours, just watch his videos!
He is sweet with what seem to be his affectations, his pushing of "Proper"and all that just seems he yearned to live a life that existed beyond this birth community . I find his breathless how-to relaxing and he does simple things well. I liked his how-to on tea sandwiches, which I already knew and do, but his ways are even more simple and they work …. use your hands, one bowl.

And given some of the atrocities I see out there I reckon he's good to go. Interior design is a matter of personal taste to a large extent anyway.
His interiors are very beautiful, but not completely to my taste, just a bit on the bland and safe side for my liking, but still very appealing and pleasant and extremely comfortable. Personally I'd add more colour, more patterns, and go for a more ornate, fussy look, with lots of chintz, patterned crushed velvet, frills, tassels and gilt. But I am an outlier in that regard and I know it

I like Nicolas, but only in small doses. I'm a retired dialogue coach for movie actors, and Nicolas' affected speaking voice puts my teeth on edge. It's so obviously phony. I'm American and have spent a lot of time on film sets in the UK. Since verbalization was my business, I could detect - but not identify - a fair number of English accents. The first time I heard Nicolas speak, it was obvious his accent wasn't regional, it was just phony. I've noticed that when he's talking directly to the camera, his careful and mannered enunciation isn't too bad. But in his voiceovers, he speaks at an even slower rate and in an even softer voice. Some people actually comment on how "calming" his voice is. Just the opposite for me.
I only discovered him a few weeks ago. The first time I watched him, it seemed obvious he wore makeup. I don't think anyone had commented on this previously, but he recently said on his blog that he's been wearing makeup since he was 16. He's a cute boy, but I don't think his pudgy body and face are going to age well. I hope he doesn't become a painted old queen.
As I said, though, I like him. He seems fairly innocent and the earnestness with which he applies himself to creating his fantasy world is both harmless and endearing.

Nicolas Fairford does his own version of RP (Received Pronunciation). In this, he is no different than thousands of would-be actors and broadcasters, because very few people in England are currently being raised in households where received pronunciation is used. Many people have their wide dipthongs and glottal mid-word t's knocked out of them in public schools like Eton or in drama schools, but you can bet that they don't use RP at home when visiting mum and dad. More power to Nicolas for changing his accent on his own. If you are trying to convince people that a "posh" way of life is superior to a working-class way of life, it's important to have the accent to match. Michael Caine was the first British actor to retain his London Cockney accent throughout his acting career, and it was a deliberate choice. I'm linking an interview about it below.
|by Anonymous||reply 494||02/28/2021|
I would say that his original accent comes from the north. RP is essential a southern England accent so I dont see him coming from there with his slow delivery.
I detect a Northumberland/County Durham/Cumbria type of lilt to his voice. Might be a Geordie but it's a bit softer than that.

I don't really give him a lot of credit, R494. His accent is a pastiche, with a LOT of mistaken RP bits where you can hear his real accent come through.
R490, I totally agree. All I can hear is the clash of his real accent and the one he thinks he's affecting, and the clash is as loud as thunder to my ears. Far from relaxing.

I wonder who he has with him doing the camera. I know sometimes he just uses a tripod but other times there is obviously someone with him because the camera moves and follows him as he walks (his most recent video of him for example).
And after seeing what his old apartment looked like, I’m definitely convinced his ex is an older guy. It looked like the rent would have been super expensive.
BTW what does he do for a living?
|by Anonymous||reply 500||Last Monday at 8:16 AM|
[R498] In my work as a dialogue coach, I frequently encountered side-effects in actors' voices when they tried to speak in a non-natural accent. There have been a couple of comments on Nicolas' saliva sounds when he speaks. This is often due to self-consciousness and/or nervousness. People experience dryness in their mouths when under tension. What makes him difficult for me to listen to is the amount of stress and strain that I can detect when he speaks, not just the saliva sounds. He's trying so hard, and it shows. In a sense, though, this is endearing. Both my father and grandfather worked in the film business in LA, so we had a lot of actors as friends. Most of whom had been trained by the studios to speak in a particular way. It was interesting that some of them spoke in their trained voices all the time, while others spoke in their natural accents in private settings. Barbara Stanwyck (even though she was a right-wing Republican) was a good friend of our family. With us, she spoke in her natural, rather harsh, Brooklyn accent. It suited her. Joan Crawford (a pity friend of my mother and grandmother) never let her guard down and always spoke in her affected manner. Despite a lifetime of doing this, she could never hide the stress in her voice. I wonder if Nicolas will be the same in ten year's time?

R501 what is a pity friend?
|by Anonymous||reply 503||Last Monday at 8:46 AM|
A pity friend is someone you befriend out of pity, not because you particularly like the person. In the case of Crawford, her attempts to overcome her lower-class origins and the snobbery she encountered elicited pity in my family. At the same time, I know my mother genuinely liked her since Crawford always acknowledged her background and always treated most people with friendliness and respect, no matter what their social standing was. I know she was extra-kind and considerate to lower-level workers at the studios. She must have felt a kinship with them. My mother once said, "Her manner may be false, but she isn't." I have a feeling that Nicolas is also someone who treats all people with consideration. I can't detect any meanness in his character.

I think that's Roosevelt's natural voice. It's supposedly typical of upper-class families in the northeastern US in the early- to middle-twentieth century. However, it's not really "natural" since it's a taught pronunciation, but it was used by a whole class of people, so is "natural" in that sense. I know something about this since my mother came from such a family (they had lineage, but not much money). Her manner of speaking was known as "Locust Valley Lockjaw" (I love that name!) and was similar to Roosevelt's sound, but much lower-pitched. Decades of living in LA, however, fortunately softened her accent.

For example, does Morphe make inexpensive brushes that could be used for this purpose? What about the pros and cons of water-, oil-, or silicone-based lubricants? For example, which is easier to remove from fine linens? Are there any flowered Wedgwood containers that could be useful for lubricant storage? What about post-fisting etiquette? Should a shower, followed by a cup of tea be offered? The possibilities here are endless.

Dickie should open a new thread on accents. They are fascinating. From Eliza Doolittle to Eleanor Roosevelt and Nic Fairford (I doubt Nic thought he would be mentioned in the same breath as Eleanor R). Katharine Hepburn had a lockjaw accent but I am not sure it was locust. Wikipedia says Lockjaw is Mid-Atlantic but I'm not so sure about that: Alistair Cooke was Mid-Atlantic but not Lockjaw.

"Katharine Hepburn had a lockjaw accent but I am not sure it was locust."
For a truer Locust Valley Lockjaw accent, you should listen to the two Beales in "Grey Gardens." BTW, the Grey Gardens house is in East Hampton, NY, which is where my mother grew up. Her formerly rich family lived full-time in their beach house, which was just about all the real estate they had left.
Katharine Hepburn's accent was simply phony. My grandfather was an executive producer at Paramount Pictures, which was next door to RKO Pictures in Hollywood. Hepburn's first contract was with RKO. My grandfather remembered her as being very affected and he was put off by her accent and manner. He reportedly described her speaking voice as "Haute Hollywood." My mother once met Hepburn's sister, Marion. She said Marion didn't speak at all like Katharine. Incidentally, Marion worked as a librarian in Hartford, CT.
