One of the most enjoyable parts of interior design is getting the chance to escape our desks and go on little tripettes around London (avoiding the rain of course).
This week the Alidad decorators have been out and about sourcing bits and bobs for various projects. For antiques, art and beautiful objet we often visit Lillie Road in Fulham, where an assortment of shops provides a plethora of things to choose from.
Among the lot, our favourites include Dorian Caffot de Fawes – a gorgeous collection of early 20th century items that are set out in charming tablescapes; Quindry – unusual furniture and quirky pieces, Nimmo and Spooner and Shane Meredith for chairs, mirrors, prints… a shoppers paradise!
On the opposite end of the spectrum, a trip to Homebase was made. Though possibly not quite as glamorous, this remains one of Alidad Ltds treasured places to visit.
Paints, tools, hardware, plants, baskets, cleaning products, lighting, pots and pans, carpet, shelving units …. What more could an interior designer want!
