CHRISTMAS 14′

Some images from my festive fluoro Christmas table this year with help from Knot & Bow. We went for a multi-coloured madness, with some toy animals thrown in for fun – even the special christmas hippo making an appearance, as per… The home-made gingerbread men also went down a treat.

I was gifted with some beautiful trays from Danish brand HAY, which is my new obsession and will be for anybody into Scandi design and/or stationary. They’ve just opened a shop in Bath, so I’m planning on making the pilgrimage there sometime this year.

Happy 2015!

72 HOURS IN STOCKHOLM

Travel

Stockholm in 72 hours – not exactly an easy task. Survival kit must include snacks and comfortable shoes – and lots of stops for coffee and pastries, obviously.

Guide to Stockholm

Eat:

Riche, Operabaren, Snickarbacken 7, T-Bar

No trip to Stockholm would be complete without some Swedish meatballs – I got my fix at the Operabaren, set in an atmospheric bar with stained glass ceiling. Riche is a really cool spot for dinner – it’s got fun interiors and their next door LillaBaren has some amazing baroque plasterwork and is a really buzzing place to get a drink.

Go:

Skansen park (more on this at a later date) is a great introduction to Swedish culture – it recreates old Sweden and houses bears and elk, as well as red squirrels, one of which scampered up my sisters leg in a moment of pure hilarity. Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s old town, has beautifully coloured buildings and lots of coffee shops. Södermalm is another cool area which needs much more exploring on my part, but is home to lots of hip restaurants and shops.

Wear:

Anything warm as above, i.e. coats from &OtherStories and Cos, Scarves from Moss Copenhagen and jumper from Cos.

All Hallows’ Eve

Flowers:pumpkins

My own take on Dutch masters still life – pumpkins and Halloween appropriate beer.

That seems about right, plus the inordinate amount of chocolate I will later consume.

Flowers from The Fresh Flower Company, SE22.

CHLOÉ SS15

Paris Fashion Week

CHLOE SHOW

Here are three of my favourite looks from the Chloé SS15 presentation at Paris fashion week. Chloé  always manages to make clothes look so effortlessly feminine whilst retaining that tomboy edge. Whats more, these are clothes that one can actually envisage wearing, and that is why it will remain one of my firm favourites.
