London Love

With both the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics just around the corner, it spurred me on to share some London/British based inspirations with you to get into the spirit of things..Not quite the red, white and blue stuff, but there's no shortage of that out there for your Jubilee party!


 

Hunter Jones Vintage - 'Central London Map', a personal favourite (I own one!), a limited edition print exclusive to Hunter Jones Vintage, by illustrative artist Kiosk berlin, available to buy on www.notonthehighstreet.com in Black, Red or Grey. Other than prints, Michael & Michael at Hunter Jones Vintage source the most beautiful vintage finds, and lovingly restore and re-invent vintage furniture. They have a beautiful store in Rye, East Sussex, where they house their collection.
