It's the countdown to London and BlogTour London - only a week until we head off. Watch out London!! So here's a few more fabulous things to do while there from man about town Will Taylor aka Mr. Bright Bazaar.
The Cloth Shop - no website for them but they are a fabric shop that sells an extensive range of natural furnishing fabrics, beautiful Swedish linens, antique household goods from Europe etc. 290 Portobello Rd, W10 (Ladbroke Grove tube).
Anthropologie (Regent St store has a three story high living wall which is lovely!)
Zara Home (Regent St, Brompton Rd (by Harrods) and Kings Rd are all good)
Habitat and Heals on Tottenham Court Rd (Habitat currently going through a takeover by a not-so-cool company so some of the stuff in there is a little suspect, but still the occasional good pieces!) Both modern - not great for rustic or vintage.
...love the delicacy of this piece, another one for the suitcase
H&M Home in the H&M store on Oxford St opposite Marks & Spencers. This is one of only two stores in London that carries the home line at the moment, but is worth checking out for great value (and easy to transport home!) buys. Lots of texture etc. Some naff pieces though - sort through and you can find some good value pieces that are quite stylish. Very much depends on the day and the pieces they have in.
SMUG - Fun boutique - lots of textiles and whimsical owls, plus a limited edition range by Donna Wilson that I like a lot.
Of course there's all the markets to check out as well - Spitalfields and Columbia Rd (amazing flower market) on a Sunday and Portobello Rd (good for antiques, but bargain hard on their marked up prices!) on a Saturday. There's some fun normal shops around these areas as well.
