We're just back from a fantastic weekend at the Top Drawer trade show in London, and thought you might like to see a few pictures of the brilliant hotel we stayed in. We chose High Road House in Chiswick after reading about it on decor8, and it's just as beautiful as it looks. Our room had Shaker style panelling, a huge bed and a lovely bathroom with gorgeous toiletries from Cowshed. We've stayed in quite a few hotels but none as thoughtfully pulled together as High Road House. It's very clean and simple but still has lots of personality which is rather hard to accomplish. We had a fabulous dinner in the brasserie and wonderfully kind, friendly service from everyone we encountered. If you're going to London - stay here!
We found lots of interesting new items at Top Drawer and are really looking forward to sharing them with you over the next few months. A limited edition spring collection from Max C will be in store in a few weeks and after visiting the inspiring Liberty, Anthropologie and the Shop at Bluebird over the weekend, we've got some surprising new display ideas up our sleeves. And the snow's gone! Bring on 2010, we say!
