I didn’t need to stumble along with my poor French to interview designer Sarah Lavoine because her English is as immaculate as her Paris apartment, overlooking the Tuileries Gardens. The interview went well and the pictures are great so something to look forward to when it goes in to print. That was Parisian high society ( Lavoine’s father is a Prince) and next in the diary was a high-level view of London. Virginia, the design brain behind Roddy & Ginger reckons her home is one of the highest in south east London, perched as it is on top of Sydenham Hill, and through the blur of snowflakes the view was spectacular.

On Thursday I lunched with Jenny Granger of Andart at the excellent Medlar at World’s End. Jenny is curator of Habitat’s Platform exhibitions and also works on various presentation and art projects. I was almost late because the bus was held up in traffic on the Kings’ Road by some mayoral looking cars inconsiderately parked on yellow lines outside an arts and antiques fair at the old Chelsea Barrack’s site. It seems to me that there are still some who think that they are above the law and have no regard for the free flow of traffic through London.
