Five minutes with Gudrun Sjödén

Last night I went to the launch of bohemian Swedish design guru Gudrun Sjödén’s UK flagship store on Monmouth Street in Covent Garden. I have long been a fan of her colourful floral patterns and laid back Scandi style and I was particularly excited to see how they translated into a standalone store. As soon […]

The Organic Farm Shop

I have long been on the hunt for some pretty block printed bedlinen that doesn’t cost the earth or look like I spent too long travelling in India. There is a happy medium, and I have finally found it – courtesy of The Organic Farm Shop. I always like it when searching for something specific […]

nestify meets Valeria Ruzzon, founder of Costa’s Barbers Casual Wear

London’s southern borough of Battersea may be overlooked as a destination for stylish and curious restaurants and cafes, but nestify’s resident design snoop Zoe thinks this is all the more reason to shout about and enjoy the places that flout this assumption… Costa’s Barbers Casual Wear is one of these treasures, tucked away on 165 Battersea High […]

Autumn at Burford

Last week I passed by Burford garden centre in Oxfordshire and couldn’t resist stopping for a quick coffee and retail runaround. I have only ever been there briefly, running in and out on busy Saturday mornings for compost with my sister who lives nearby, so I relished the chance to wander round in peace and […]

Luardos: Mexicana kitsch reigns supreme

My friend Simon Luard, from Luardos Mexican street food, just had his Citroen H resprayed and it looks very cool: pink, sexy, and kitsch to the hilt. You can hunt it down for yourself at markets around London. Specialising in his signature Baja Fish Tacos, it’s where you want to be. They’re delicious. His other […]

New season at Graham & Green

I just got through some images of the new season collection at Graham & Green, available next month, and think it has some lovely pieces. I am especially excited to see the back of bone-enamelled chests and the small beginnings of Baz Luhrmann retro kitsch. The animal nightlights melt my heart.

People we’re loving: Kelly Wearstler

I may be way behind the times, because after a little bit of research I see she is more or less a household name, but I recently came across American interior designer Kelly Wearstler and am a big fan. Although she mostly does hotels and public spaces, she also does the odd house – mostly […]

Peep show: the coolest bank in the world

Peep show: Fiona Apple goes retro

Holed up in bed with a broken leg, Zoe has found great joy in passing the days watching retro music videos on youtube. As a special Peep Show post, and for want of anything better to do, she has selected the perfect products to recreate Fiona Apple’s dark, suggestive apartment from her video for the […]

Give your hallway some love

Saidos de Concha on Flickr When I moved into my flat in the summer, I couldn’t have cared less about the hallway. The word and the space seem to belong to big rambling houses, not little urban hideouts.  Say ikat cushion or hand thrown mug or anything Bang & Olufsen and my ears will prick […]
