Arrived in beloved Paris today but before i post about the many beautiful sights of Paris i need to share some gorgeous finds i stumbled upon in London with the help of my old friend from Singapore who now lives in London (thanks Saya!)

 

We started the day off at London's Bill's (it's actually called Granger & Co) Not surprisingly the best coffee and breaky in London; it's in Notting Hill and apparently he is opening another one in East London..

 

Inside Granger & Co ( I really don't know why he didn't just call it Bill's?) it's such a beautiful fit out; there is a stunning segmented mirror at the back which really opens up the space and I absolutely love the wooden ceilings - am kind of regretting not putting them in Paddo in our end room (Luigi i hope you are not reading this!)

 

These are the wall lights in Granger & Co - they are actually plastered! So unique and provide the space with great warmth

 

Next stop Chelsea for some after lunch homewards shopping - this is a beautiful mother of pearl inlay chest of drawers which is hand made in Syria...it's 8,500 pounds!! ( I am obsessed with inlay but not that much!)

 

The same shop also had this gorgeous mirrored and lucite chest - very art deco; actually most of the stores we looked at primarily stocked art deco pieces which i am starting to love for their quirky simplicity

 

 

Gorgeous Art Deco pendant light - would look great in our Master bedroom at Paddo against the dark blue walls!!

 

 

Ok i might have actually bought these and shipped them home but they were sold! They are 1920's French; there is some kind of paint finish on the inside of the glass which makes such a beautiful green

 

 

These were from the same shop 1950's from the US - CUTE!! Would be great bedside lamps for the girl's room!!
