Highlights from this week in London. Read about everything from architecture to food and delve a little deeper into London's culture.


Issue 102

We kick off 2021 talking about what we loved about the interior design trends we saw last year and a few exhibitions that are on the top of our list for this year.

Interior Design Trends of 2020

Renderings and Murals

Unless you were one of the lucky ones to get a window between lockdowns to travel to Dubai or The Maldives, life was at a complete standstill and summer was spent looking at our living room walls and garden fences, instead of our usual summer views of white sands and blue seas. So, the next best thing was to use interior design to bring us a sense of escapism from the global pandemic.

A stand-out piece of design was by the Swedish pairing, Folkform, created a mural of a swimming pool using over 1,000 pieces of glass and ceramic. Aside from the garden paddling pool, this mural is the next best thing to a real pool!

Moody Palettes

The tone of 2020 was reflected in the palettes that people opted for in their homes. The loud hues that dominated the design scene a couple of years ago have now evolved into moody blues and smoky greens - something that we expect will continue into 2021. You can play with these colours; a deep painted room with earthy cream furnishings or a clean and light room with a rich accent sofa. If it looks good on Instagram, then it’s here to stay.

Rustic Style

With the angst and uncertainty that came with the turn of a new decade, it’s no surprise that comforting interiors were a popular choice. Warm designs with touches that brought upon the feeling of ‘there’s no place like home’ was a MUST to feel some sense of security and solace amongst the madness.

A highlight for us was by architect, Timothy Mercier, who transformed a French farm building into a tranquil dwelling for his parents, finished with one-of-a-kind accents and accessories he found in a Parisian flea market. A rustic French farmhouse is the epitome of comfort, which we could all use right now.

Banksy in Covent Garden

We are looking forward to Spring 2021 for a number of reasons; lifting of lockdown (fingers crossed), warmer weather and the world’s biggest touring collection of Banksy artwork in Covent Garden.

This year, from 25th March – 26th September at 50 Earlham Street in Covent Garden, we will be able to see a one-of-a-kind collection of unique pieces from the enigmatic artist, Banksy.

Legendary pieces such as Girl and the Balloon, Rude Copper, and a whole host of rarely seen work will be dispersed though out a large 12,000 sq.ft space in Covent Garden.

Curated by private art collector, Chris Ford, this art exhibition is just the thing to keep us going through this long winter and something we can look forward to, as a change of scenery and mooch around Covent Garden sounds like a dream right now.

Illuminated Earth in Greenwich

It’s safe to say that after the past year that we’ve had, we all have a slightly different perspective on things. If this is not the case for you, then the intergalactic exhibition due to be installed in Greenwich will help you on your way.

After a successful run over the summer during the Greenwich & Docklands International Festival, a spectacular model of Earth will be illuminating the Painted Hall within the Old Royal Naval Collages. Already deemed as the United Kingdom’s ‘Sistene Chapel’ this brilliant showcase called ‘Gaia’ by Luke Jerram adds a new, spellbinding element to this London venue.

For the average Londoner, we will never get to experience the unparalleled view of Earth that astronauts get, but this is as good as it gets; Imagery from Nasa has been used to create this rotating globe that is 1.8 million times smaller than Earth. So put your moonboots on and get ready to experience something out of this world!
