My Discovery Trail blog of March 19 made reference to Soho Home, the interiors offshoot of Soho House. Reading the August edition of House & Garden magazine I note with interest that Soho Home have now opened their first retail space at Liberty London.
The information page on Liberty’s website reads “Soho Home, the interiors collection from Soho House, has arrived at Liberty on 4. With a curated collection of furniture, tableware, textiles and accessories, inspired by or used in the Houses worldwide, our latest destination space on 4 allows you to add touches of Soho House polish to your interior, with an emphasis on quality, design and attention to detail.”

Sunny Brixham is full of surprises. A gentle stroll in the sunshine turned into a voyage of discovery when I was there last weekend.
Set high above the harbour, a short stroll from the town centre, you will find Middle Street.
18-20 Middle Street
This is less seaside and more interior heaven. At first glance it may appear a little down at heal, and admittedly on a Sunday morning some of the shops were closed, but as the summer season gets well underway this will be the place to come.
Old and new
Tooth & Claw have set the scene since their arrival two years ago as more of the previously empty shops are being taken over by budding entrepreneurs.
This is the place to come if you are looking for something that is a little off beat and quirky. In Tooth & Claw you will find an eclectic collection of gifts and homeware.
Part gothic and part mid-century modern this shop is leading the way for others to open up in the near future.
So when you’re tired of the seaside themed interior shops, of which there are many, take a gentle stroll away from the harbour and you will be pleasantly surprised .
For more information and on-line shop visit Tooth & Claw.
On the afternoon of Saturday July 15th Langdon Hyde Design will have a “pop-up shop” at the Albury Produce Show.
“The Edit” will be a collection of furniture, cushions, and bunting which have been inspired by three of my major passions; home, garden, and shopping!
Making use of “previously enjoyed” items of furniture and a huge collection of shopping bags, both paper and fabric, I hope to have created some eye catching accessories that will bring colour and joy to anyone’s home.
The show opens at 2pm and, from past experience, has some wonderful stalls. Games for children, competitions for pets, refreshment tents for adults, and a whole host of shopping opportunities.
Central to the whole Albury show experience is the large marquee with its displays of award winning freshly grown produce and crafts.
For more information go to www.alburyproduce.org.uk.
I look forward to seeing you there x
