Things To Do This Bank Holiday

If you are like me you probably have plans for the bank holiday ( wedding + a family day at a country fair) but the bonus of an extra day means you are feeling breezy about them, they feel like ‘loose plans’ and the weekend still has that feeling of possibility. Maybe you can fit […] Read more…

My Top Drawer Highlights 2016

Ah September, it’s that whirlwind month in the calendar when the design industry descends on London town for a fortnight-ish of product launches, glitzy parties, catch ups with old friends and new design discoveries – everyone runs around like their *** is on fire but it’s all actually really fantastic – and inspiring. Kicking off my […] Read more…

Modern Magic at Versailles by Olafar Elliasson

Whilst we are dreaming about 17th century Versailles – something entirely magical is happening in 21st century Versailles. Each year the Palace (of Versailles) holds an exhibition on its grounds by a major contemporary artist – this year Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson – best known for bringing a colossal sun into Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall for […] Read more…

Indoor Weekend Activity : The Barbican Conservatory

This Easter weekend isn’t looking as sunny as we all had planned – but as a Londoner well-versed to seasonal disappointments I have a well thumbed and visited list of indoor activities at my disposal! Last Sunday finding myself very alone with a toddler due to Dave’s delayed flight from San Francisco (we were hoping to […] Read more…

Autumn Exhibition: Rembrandt The Late Works

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited to the press preview of ‘Rembrandt: The Late Works’ at The National Gallery which opens to the public today. Each time I visit one of our city’s beautiful museums I never fail to be astounded by the sheer grandeur and rich detail of our galleries. The National […] Read more…

Back from A Summer of Love

As much as I have delighted in a once in a lifetime maternity break, I have been itching to get back to design and my blog especially. It felt only appropriate that I kickstart it during the London Design Festival. Having spent the past four months [has it been that long already?] in a haze of […] Read more…

Wool House at Somerset House

Yesterday I visited Somerset House for the preview of a new exhibition Wool House in association with The Campaign for Wool dedicated to innovations in the material. At the entrance to the exhibition I was greeted by and instantly smitten with two tall elegant topiary plants which on second glance were found to be made […] Read more…

Manet Portraying Life

[Image Source] I find portraits the most interesting of all forms of art, whether it is a light as a feather sketch of a face, or a detailed oil painting – the defiant nature of another human gazing challengingly out from a canvas at you – or in all their vulnerability laid bare to be […] Read more…

Exhibition: Tim Walker: Story Teller

Returning from the newly opened Tim Walker: Story Teller exhibition at Somerset House today, I stirred up a whole load of controversy at work by innocently announcing that I enjoyed certain aspects of the exhibition but overall I thought Tim Walker was overrated… My reasons – because although I am the first person to jump […] Read more…

Edvard Munch at The Tate

Earlier this month I went to see the Edvard Munch: The Modern Eye at the Tate. Few other modern artists are better known and yet less understood than Norwegian painter. He is one of the most famous expressionists in art and in popular culture – I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t know The […] Read more…
