To celebrate London Design Festival, award-winning interior designer Alidad (pictured above) will be creating schemes for two of our windows – one either side of the main entrance on the King’s Road. There will be a luxe and layered artist’s studio with bold black and gold, styled with bookcases and architectural pieces, while the other will demonstrate a much fresher and younger look featuring 20th Century pieces. The windows will launch on 10th September.
Gabby Deeming, Decoration Director at House & Garden, will be in conversation with Alidad on Monday 21st September at 3pm discussing his inspiration for the schemes and working with antiques in the modern home. There will be the opportunity for Q&A with Alidad and Gabby Deeming after the talk.
This week Alidad Adores these sumptuous and classic tassel tiebacks from Wendy Cushing Passementerie.
Wendy came to visit us this week and brought a dazzling array of richly textured tassel tiebacks. We absolutely love the ornate detail, traditional craftsmanship and intricate decoration of these decadent curtain accessories.
This week Alidad Adores these textured and colourful fabrics from Pippa Caley. We love the elaborate organic forms, the delicate embroidery and the bright bursts of colour in these varied and interesting textiles. A really fun and unusual addition to any room!
This week we absolutely love this sophisticated English Brass & Steel Drinks Trolley with Swivelling Shelves from Guinevere.
The curved geometry make it an enchanting piece to add to any drawing room and the swivel action shelves will definitely liven up cocktail hour! The rich colours of the brass and steel really compliment each other well and make a simple design into an elegant whole. We love it!
