Yesterday I visited the new IKEA pop up Restaurant in London Shoreditch (East London)
The Dining Club (that’s what it’s called) features a DIY restaurant where you’re the chef, an IKEA cafe, serving Swedish delicacies, inspiring workshops, and a small shop too.
Since my Swedish trip is getting close, I tough I’ll post some more inspiration here.
I had this lovely Family House in Gothenburg saved on my work computer for a long time. I found it a while ago on this blog. I hope you like it
The neutral grey tones of the house make it feel really calm and relaxing. The wood furniture is very well balanced with the rest of the house (I am dreaming about sitting on that black armchair on a cold winter day having a warm coffee…)
This Sunday I’ve been to the The Vintage Furniture Flea in Bethnal Green (East London). I have to say that, I haven’t appreciate Vintage Style since I moved to London. This city seems to be crazy about it. Even if I didn’t have much money to spend ( as I’m trying to save it for my trip to NY 🙂 ) I think there were few little beautiful things that make the visit worth while.
The Fair is covering furniture, homewares, textiles, lights and prints, with a focus on mid-century and vintage style. Honestly I found that there weren’t as many pieces of furniture, but the most interesting ones were on a little corner at the left side, just off the main space.
I can’t believe it’s September already.
I always loved and hated this time of the year: summer is almost over, schools starts again (sometimes I wish I was still at school), days are getting shorter, but, at the same time, it is the best moment to start with some fresh ideas, change things, clean the house, buying new schoolbooks ( do you remember the excitement of buying new notebooks, books and pencils before school starts? I can almost smell it :0 ), or simply make some plans for winter.
Happy Friday! The weather has been so lovely here in London this week, that it’s still making me feel like I’m on holiday.
To keep the mood going, I’m gonna share a few more pics of the White & Blue House:
The living room is dominated by the curvy lines of the fireplace and the two little arched windows.
The vintage wicker chair has been restored and has stripy white and light blue fabric cushions, the same fabric has been used for the curtains and the sofa. The floors of the entire house are covered with local ‘terracotta’ tiles.
