Living in London you sometimes feel like you have the world at your feet. There are so many things to do of a weekend – visiting museums, concerts, shops, restaurants…the list goes on…and do I ever get off my arse and explore the beautiful city that is London? Well this weekend I am. I’m going to visit the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture I keep opening up magazines and seeing it featured. They’ve just started an exhibition inspired by 1950’s style. I’m particularly interested in the display of 50’s textiles they have. (P.S. I visited it! here is a leaflet I picked up thought you might be interested…)

Recently I popped over to East London to visit the Geffrye Museum. If you’re interested in how home styles have changed over the decades then this is a great museum to visit. The food was exceptional in their cafe and it overlooks a really cute herb garden. It really is a lovely day out. I picked up a couple of books in their shop on 50’s style hoping to learn a bit more about the era and the fabric designers.
