Well, apologies I have been rather off the radar recently. This is partly due to a very hectic end of August/September with three weddings in a row but more recently due to a bit of a nasty bike accident which left me with a (hopefully temporary) scar across my face and a dose of concussion. Eek! Turns out concussion makes you very tired which didn’t leave much for blogging post work…anyways pretty much all back to normal now, barring the face but I’m hoping this will recover soon.
And at least I have London Design Festival to cheer me up, and give me some pretty things to feast my eyes on. I have a whole schedule of activities planned this weekend to make the most of it, and will try share as much as possible. The bit I am most looking forward to is a trip to Tent London which showcases a vast array of design and allows you to take a trip round the world, a number of countries inroduce you to their design identities in Country Pavilions. FoI will be making a beeline for some new Norwegian design talent at 100% Norway. Love a bit of scandi action.
There are lots of different shops, showrooms and workshops going on this week all over town. If you check out the website you can tailor make an itinerary.
As always Darkroom has come up trumps, with a beautiful window display to distract me when I cycle past (!) on the way to work. They also have in some new bits from a collaboration between Darkroom and Camille Walala’s called T-R-I-B-A-L-A-L-A. Oooh I’d like to get my hands on that bead print by Rhonda Drakeford below.
