Tea, Bubbles and Baubles

In Uncategorized on December 13, 2013 at 11:07 am

 Awaiting the last layouts of the book to come through so I can start on the task of writing captions, but in the meantime I’ve been out and about and sociable.

There was an enjoyable afternoon tea at Browns Hotel with Emelie Akerbrant of Saint Laurent ( as YSL is now known) to talk about the opening of a new shop and the decor designed by the illusive Hedi Slimane. Then to Putney Bridge for a chat with Rosie of Gabrielle Shaw Communications about Windsor in Florida, the chic housing development  set up by the Weston family, who also own Selfridges.

Then too-ing and fro-ing to put the final details together for next week’s trip to Lippstadt in Germany to shoot a feature for The Times Magazine on the new House of Hartnell home collection. Early start on Monday as the flight leaves City Airport at 7.35am and we have photographic equipment and lights to check in.

But the most sociable of all the week’s events was The Gosling Team’s invitation to ‘Champagne cocktails, Christmas baubles, Nibble and hugs’ at Sycamore House in Clapham. Tim Gosling may be a master craftsman and draughtsman, designing some of the most intricate and wonderful furniture but his festive decorations show another side, perhaps his inner child? Anyway it was a great start to the festive season.
