  • Peter Pan

    peterpanThe NSPCC invites you to join us for a swashbuckling adventure.

    This October, leading figures from the world of design and fashion are coming together to raise money for the NSPCC by performing in “Peter Pan and the Designers of the Caribbean”
    at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre.

    London is grey and drab. All the interior designers have fled to Never Never Land to escape their client’s bad taste and endless complaints. But with Captain Hook on the loose, how long before the Designers realise they must return colour to London and save the secret to design from Hook’s evil clutches?

    Join Wendy, Tinkerbell, Tiger-Lily and the Lost Designers for a production of magic and fantasy, mermaids, pirates, ticking crocodiles, and mischief.

    Starring leading figures from the world of interior design and with costumes designed by the most illustrious fashion designers in the world, this pantomime promises a fun, fabulous and outrageously glamorous night out.

  • Autumn Newsletter – October 8th

    The first chill winds of Autumn have been blowing round my house so I have stayed inside to read . I was delighted to peruse “The Interiors of Chester Jones” by Henry Russell. Scattered throughout were many items I recognised to have been found in The Pimlico Road, both antique and modern . The Pimlico Road does actually get a mention on page 173 . Mr Jones has been a constant habitué of the shops and galleries in the area for over 40 years. An erudite text with stunning photographs of his eclectic and sophisticated take on very comfortable and stylish ways to live.

    On to the November issue of Interiors. It is always good to see locals advertising here. I spotted Jamb disporting a fine lantern in one and  Michael. S. Smith  elegant textiles in another. Even better is editorial coverage as thank goodness this a free promotion for a product . In the Antennae section, Soane had a very stylish sofa bed upholstered in a stunning Turkish inspired fabric. In the witty fabric article, “Travellers Checks” , could be found “Market Check” by Jasper for Michael. S. Smith at Jamb and a delicious yellow check “LW3909” from Lewis and Wood, a partner business of Joanna Wood.

    In the November issue of House and Garden again Jamb advertised but this time a beautiful fireplace and the fabrics of Michael. S. Smith. Jane Churchill fabrics both bold and stylish were promoted by Colefax and Fowler. Under “Classics in Colour” do not miss The Biggest Blanket Company promotion for their Turnbull Cashmere  New Collection showing a rich red throw. In the editorial articles numerous appearances were made of wonderful local products. In “Out and About” I saw Luke Erwin’s  elegant hand knotted rug “Eridu”. Gabby Deeming’s article, “Through a glass darkly”, showed Paulo Moschino’s darkly seductive  “Melba Stripe” black glazed linen. Rose Uniacke had several items in the stylish room sets  including; an elegant plain off white sofa, a pair of side tables and a sumptuous golden yellow cashmere throw. I particularly liked her smart brass coat hooks and stylish cast brass coat hangers. Her gifted and equally stylish mother, Hilary Batstone , is represented by an handsome triptych dressing table mirror and a striking pair of large chrome framed looking glasses. A lovely reupholstered, period arm chair is also illustrated from her shop in Holbein Place. Staying with chairs from Howe is one of a set of ebonised black oak dinning chairs upholstered in a chic black goatskin. One of many items he designs and makes for his shops in Bourne Street and The Pimlico Road.

    Last but not least it was great to see under “Designer Profile” the article on one of our up and coming designers, Flora Soames , who works under the Talisman umbrella. Good to see her stylish work profiled in this prestigious magazine.

    Needless to say I am constantly keeping an eye on the shops and galleries in and around The Pimlico Road looking for new inspiration. So yes you can keep an eye on us from your arm chair through books, magazines and our website, but a visit is always the best option. Put in your diary Sunday 7th December, The Belgravia Christmas Sunday. Hope to see you there.

    Regards, Mark Boyce.
