Londoness Loves 2019

Suddenly, just like that, it’s the last of the teen years. And with all the uncertainty over the B word, thank goodness the arts and culture scene in London is remaining just as vibrant, superlative and oftentimes mind-blowingly exciting. Yes, it’s going to be a whiz-bang capital 2019 in London. Here are my top recommendations…

Home Futures, Design Museum, Mon Oncle, Jacques Tati. Villa Arpel

Home Futures at the Design Museum

Fans of Jacques Tati’s Mon Oncle, Tomorrow’s World  (which returns to BBC4 later this month) and sci-fi film Back to the Future  will be delighted with the Design Museum’s latest immersive exhibition: Home Futures. It’s not about the future, but rather about how we once imagined design would impact the world in and outside the home….

Londoness Loves October 2018

It’s a big birthday for me this month, so I’m taking a deep breath as I head into a very busy celebratory October. It’s always been my favourite month (how surprising, I hear you say?) but it’s more about the smells, the colours and the cosiness of a month where the leaves turn from burnt…

Pencils are sharpened, shoes are buffed, and raincoats make their re-appearance on the coat rack this month. It’s back to school, or as they call it in France, la rentrée, (the return). It’s been a quiet, heat-filled summer in London, but now it’s time for a good harvest of autumnal theatre, art, opera and music,…

Wallace Collection, Richard Wallace, Rococo art, museums in London

The Wallace Collection – A National Treasure

Tucked behind the Selfridges department store in Marylebone is one of my favourite London haunts, an eighteenth-century city pile with a jaw-dropping art collection and a 500-strong furniture depository which would make Marie Antoinette feel perfectly at home. It’s a sea of crimson red, rococo gold, salmon and strawberry pink, emerald green and indigo blue….

Prince and Patron, Buckingham Palace, Royal Family, Prince Charles

Prince and Patron at Buckingham Palace

It’s hard to pick a favourite at Prince and Patron, Buckingham Palace, an exhibition marking the 70th birthday of His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales. The 100 works which have been stuffed into the Palace’s Ball Supper Room were personally chosen by the Prince from the Royal Collection, the result of which is a…

It’s a swell time of year in London isn’t it? Tennis season has kicked off, London has gone art crazy and the sun is shining! It’s a busy month ahead for Londoness with plenty of theatre and with Mark Rylance coming back to Shakespeare’s Globe, no less! And let’s not forget, this month sees the…
