Pop-In@Nordstrom: Liberty London
I’ve blogged about my love affair with Liberty London before. And so you can imagine my delight at seeing Liberty London’s home decor and giftables available stateside — at Nordstrom’s Pop-In Shop! Items range from gardening tools to stationery to clothing.
Here are also some other pieces that I have my eye on:
Liberty London will be at the Nordstrom Pop-In Shop until Aug. 2.
I spotted this on sho & tell blog and had to share! Lucy Sparrow’s Cornershop resembles your average Spar shop or British news agent, but all the items are hand knitted! Take a look!
Whew! That’s a lot of knitting! Incredible! More on Lucy Sparrow at her website.
A London sign
Looking for a way to add a little London to your home? Check out Pottery Barn’s London sign, now on sale for $509. It’s a framed giclée print that can be special ordered.
Land of Nod goes British
I’m always on the hunt for sweet and inexpensive wall art for my kids’ rooms and stumbled upon Land of Nod, which currently has some great decor with some British flavor (and also a great blog for inspiration, Honest to Nod).
Check out their personalized wall art ($129), featuring Big Ben and double decker buses, which can be personalized with your child’s name.
I also loved their Lately Lily London quilt ($189), with an appliquéd and embroidered London scene, which would work perfectly with … their Lately Lily London bedding set!
A radical tea towel
Brits love their tea towels. I’ve blogged about it before.
But now, a British company has given tea towels the radical treatment, featuring tea towels for feminists, vegetarians, liberals and activists. The Radical Tea Towel Company produces tea towels made with Panama cotton, or 100% premium cotton. They will deliver by first class post in the U.K. and by airmail to the rest of the world.
Here are just a few examples!
London Underground at home
Look what I found on Etsy! Nice, right? It’s handmade and is priced at $140. The seller, GoingUnderground, specializes in subway art prints that pay homage to cities around the world and they ship worldwide.
They also offer these – so you can select the Tube stations that mean the most to you:
A mini stretch limo?
It sounds like a dichotomy, but a limo driver has supersized his Mini Cooper, transforming it into a 27-foot-long stretch limousine.
Will wonders never cease!
Quintessentially British print
Love this print I found on Pinterest, hand-lettered by the U.K.’s Debbie Kendall from The Enlightened Hound. There’s only one print left on her site in a handmade frame for £95.
How to throw a British party
No British party would be complete without these decorations, courtesy of Chickabug. Items include bunting, water bottle labels, cupcake wrappers and toppers, and thank you cards. Jolly good!
Gap’s London Tote
I just spotted this city tote on Gap.com. 100% cotton canvas with a sweet design of London on the front for $19.95. They also do Paris, San Francisco and New York! What a stylish way to carry home groceries!
