Ten designers in the west wing

I had the most lovely exciting time in London the other day and at the LGC bloggers event and although me and Jodie were only there for a short time we managed to catch a glimpse of the London Design Festival at Somerset House. I've never been to this place before but it's gorgeous and huge and a really cool building for them to exhibit major international designers.

The Drawing Room

Each designer was invited to create a bespoke environment for the newly renovated rooms in the west wing to tell a 'design story' about their work and the key brands they work with. My favourites had to be the Paperless Post and Patternity collaboration because I loved the mixture of different shapes and forms covered in geometric pattern, it was bold and playful- two of my favourite things! I also loved Faye Toogood's "drawing room." The walls were covered in charcoal sketches, there was a record playing humming the sound of birds and a rail near the entrance displaying her unisex outerwear collection. It felt surreal, the atmosphere was soft and moody- it was almost like walking on to a film set.

After having tea and cake at the cafe we went back to our hostel, changed into our clothes for the evening and found a sweet little reggae bar to have some yummy rum cocktails. The actual event was lots of fun too but I'll save that for another post which will be on the blog soon. : )
