Show and Tell | September
As we head further into autumn here's a quick look back at September and a round up of a few of the things I've been doing, enjoying and discovering over the past few weeks.
I love discovering and drinking good wine at home, but unless you are a real wine buff it's not always easy to know what to buy. I was recently introduced to Garmence Wine Studio, a new online store founded by father and daughter team Charlotte and Benoit Calvet that brings fine wine from Europe's small producers to the UK. Their first collection of just twelve limited edition wines is both crafted and curated in close partnership with local producers. Each one comes with a beautifully designed label and the company delivers direct to your home with stylish and secure packaging at your chosen hourly time slot.
In the kitchen
This sculptural kettle from the new Avvolta collection by De'Longhi has been making a statement in my kitchen this month. Featuring asymmetric horizontal layered bands the design takes its style cues from the Guggenheim Museum in New York. The collection also includes a futuristic toaster with chrome accents.
Out & About
I enjoyed a delightful evening at Petersham Nurseries last week for a preview of their new Christmas collections. This was the magical table setting we sat down to for a dinner by chef Damian Clisby and Culinary Director Lucy Boyd. Their 2016 Christmas collections will be available from the end of October.
Vuelio got in touch to let me know that Design Hunter has again been featured in the latest update of their influential Top 10 UK Interiors Bloggers list (yay! thank you all for reading), and I was thrilled to be interviewed for a feature in the October edition of Kensington and Chelsea magazine alongside three amazing women who I really admire in the interiors world - Sophie Robinson, Abigail Ahern and Niki Brantmark of My Scandinavian Home. The interview is also online at Luxury London if you fancy a read.
