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.
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!
I bloody love gin
Here is the perfect print for the gin lover in your life! It’s made in Britain, but can be shipped to the U.S. or anywhere worldwide. It’s priced at $21.23 at NotontheHighStreet.com.
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:
Red Bull’s office gives employees wings
Check out Red Bull’s London headquarters, which has been recently refurbished. New offices comprise the top three floors of an existing 19th century building – including a rooftop extension. The top floor also includes a main reception, bar, café, and both informal and formal meeting areas. Looks like a pretty cool place to work!
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.

Best of British kitchens
Sure, British food has long been the butt of many jokes stateside (despite the fact that most of it is all lies!), but their kitchen design has been head and shoulders ahead of ours. Apartment Therapy has a roundup of the best of the bunch. Thanks to Ally for bringing this to my attention!
I was flipping through the February issue of Matchbook Magazine (love, love, love) and inhaled the feature story about designer Jonathan Adler entitled “The Headquarters of Happy Chic.”
He has a great eye for interiors. There’s so much to like, not only in the article’s colorful pages, but on his own retail site including the playful ’60s motif “Carnaby acid”, his British flag needlepoint stool and his gorgeous navy regent arm chair.
It’s all eye candy. Check it out!
