I spotted this online and love the retro vibe and cultural references! It’s available as a T-shirt via this link.
Have you seen this amazing art installation at the entrance of the Victoria & Albert Museum, made of traffic cones?
It’s by S3i Group and Heatherwick Studios and is advertising the British Design exhibition, which runs through August 12.
Thanks to my London friend Lise Colyer for snapping this gorgeous photo!
If you haven’t yet seen the AcelorMittal Orbit Tower, take a gander. This feast for the eyes was unveiled last month and may give the Eiffel Tower a run for its money.
At 377 feet high, it’s Britain’s largest work of public art and it’s located in the Olympic Park in Stratford, East London, where the Summer Games will be held next month.
So far, the reviews are mixed. Some people love it, some people hate it. Many are wishing they weren’t living in its shadow. What do you think? It reminds me of something you might see in Las Vegas – part rollercoaster, part revolving restaurant in the sky!
My mother-in-law sent me a link to this pop art and asked if it was nice or naff …
What do you think? Tacky or not? Am I crazy for thinking this could possibly be charming in an appropriately decorated shabby chic-style room?
When we lived in London over 10 years ago, we rented a tight little apartment (and by tight, I don’t mean “rad” or “awesome,” I mean tight.)
Don’t get me wrong. It grew on us and we loved it like you love a quiet and dependable relative that dons old kaftans, listens to a lot of Carly Simon and smells vaguely of a combination of mothballs and gyros.
And so it is with sheer awe that I viewed the latest house tour on Apartment Therapy – a five-bedroom, 2,250 square foot Edwardian home in West London. The space! The modern conveniences! The child-friendly yet decidedly urbane touches! And in green and leafy Chiswick to boot? Get out of town.
