Zara Home Kids has some lovely Liberty inspired pieces. The little booties are sooo cute! I just need someone tiny to buy them for!  I’ve bought Flor Kids pillowcases for our bed, and at just £8 each, have got the Liberty look for a snip!

Missing this beautiful place, can’t wait to go back next year…

The green wall at the Athaenium, London

The green wall at the Athaenium, London

I’ve been dying to see this since it was installed earlier this year at the Athenaeum, and it is fabulous. The planting is in long ribbons with lots of grasses, bright and sunny red valerian near the top, and lush, shady planting at ground level. I would love to stay in one of those rooms with planting surrounding the windows – Oh and it has the Queen for a neighbour too! Buckingham Palace is just down the road!
