Petersham Nurseries is definitely the prettiest cafe I have ever been too. It’s both an informal ‘Teahouse’ and Michelin starred restaurant (The Cafe), set within a nursery next to the Thames and Petersham Meadows which makes it especially beautiful. As long as you have a taste for style above function you’ll love it. The tables [...]


This is Carolinda Tolstoy. Carolinda is a ceramicist with an incredible body of work. Everything in her house is in-keeping with her unique style, from the walls to the plates and dishes, right down to her shoes. Her home is so distracting.
