Medlar Restaurant, Kings Road, London

It's not often that you visit a restaurant and are so swept up in how amazing it was that you cannot stop thinking about how perfect it all was. The formula for my idea of a perfect restaurant is quite simple - well-designed, welcoming interior with a buzzy atmosphere, fresh and flavourful food served by friendly, efficient staff who are there but not there - if you see what I mean. When all those components come together, the result is quite spectacular but not in a booming fireworks way, more like an understated perfection kind of way.

5 Amazing Room Designs by Carrier & Company

I have been a huge fan of the interior design practice Carrier & Company for many years. Based in NYC and founded by husband and wife team Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller; for me, their work is perfection.

The way they seamlessly blend antique and vintage pieces with contemporary design is nothing short of spectacular. I love that they work with the client's existing collections, artwork, hand-me-downs, heirlooms and incorporate it all into the interior design which creates truly personal, timeless and comfortable homes.

Their first book Positively Chic Interiors is out for pre-order now so I thought now was as good a time as any to share my favourite room designs.

A Change of Plan

I'm really excited to finally let you all know some news that I have been keeping quiet now for some time. As many of you know, I started West Egg in 2010 because I wanted to do something that I was more interested in, which was the world of interiors.

It has been an amazing ride and I'm so grateful to everyone who supported West Egg in so many different ways. My passion for interior design, furniture design, antiques, restoration, business, social media, and of course blogging, is stronger than ever and I am very thankful for the amazing opportunities I have had over the last 4 years.

I'm going to take you on a little tour of an absolute gem of a English pub - The Wild Rabbit. This is now at the top of my list of places I want to visit this year - want to see why?

Petit & Olson, Bainbridge Island, W.A.

Greetings from Bainbridge Island! Since I arrived late last Thursday evening, the days have flown by. I taught the first of two weekend workshops on Saturday and Sunday at Komedal Road Studio which went really well and it was really amazing to see the pieces that people brought in and totally transformed over the two days. It was really busy so I didn't get a chance to take many photographs, but I will be able to post a few soon. I thought in the meantime I would take you on a little visit to a lovely store called Petit & Olson.

The Swoon Pop Up

Last year I collaborated with Swoon Editions on this post and I've kept an eye on their designs ever since. Earlier this week I got an email about their first ever pop up store in Soho, London. Previously their work has only been available to view online so it's really exciting to be able to see the different pieces all under one roof.
