My Favourite things right now: terrariums, Missoni bathroom, Caribbean calypso, What We wore exhibit.
- This spectacular Terrarium, found by Wee Birdy whose wonderful blog I used to follow religiously when she was living and writing about London, this is the best terrarium I’ve seen yet:
- All Missoni towels, but especially Noemi (picured) and this fabulous bathmat from Anthropologie. My bathroom is telling me that it desperately needs these in its life!
- My very talented close friend Nina has has been commissioned to publish a photographic history of what people wore from 1950 to the present, a peoples history of style. She will be showcasing it at tomorrow night’s Dalston Takeover at the Victoria & Albert Museum Friday Late, if you have a good pic go along and you may end up in her book!
- The 60th anniversary of the arrival of MV Empire Windrush last week has got me listening again to a brilliant Caribbean calypso compilation of London immigrants and their observations of life in London in the fifties. The album series is called London Belongs To Me, it is a truly brilliant collection, my favourite is My Landlady by Lord Kitchener
