Blooms­bury & May­fair

Style at Home - - Style Destination -

Sto­ried Blooms­bury was home to Vir­ginia Woolf and Charles Dick­ens, and when you’re strolling its old streets, the sense of his­tory is very much alive.

Pen­treath & Hall

Lo­cated be­hind a diminu­tive Vic­to­rian shopfront in the heart of Blooms­bury, Pen­treath & Hall sells care­fully cho­sen house­wares and a unique as­sort­ment of let­ter­press goods and prints. Imag­ine dec­o­rat­ing your cool Lon­don flat with pieces from this shop’s eclec­tic in­ven­tory. pen­treath-hall.com

Perse­phone Books

This lovely book­shop pub­lishes seem­ingly for­got­ten or out-of-print works of fic­tion and non-fic­tion by fe­male writ­ers. Each of its nearly 150 ti­tles boasts a cus­tom grey dust jacket (the same shade as the shopfront). perse­phone­books.co.uk

De­li­ciously Ella

There’s so much I love about this bright and cheery deli with its pretty decor, but it’s the food that’s truly the most re­mark­able. The plant-based menu is vast, of­fer­ing ev­ery­thing from turmeric lat­tes to gra­nola and co­conut yogurt to warm­ing stews and cur­ries. Be sure to pick up a copy of one of founder Ella Mills’s best­selling cook­books. de­li­cious­lyella.com

Book a reser­va­tion to have Cham­pagne Af­ter­noon Tea in the Gallery. The chic pink back­drop is a fit­ting set­ting for savour­ing a fan­tas­ti­cal ar­ray of teas, bub­bly wine and treats. While you’re there, check out the other rooms (and egg-shaped re­stroom pods) in this weirdly won­der­ful spot con­ceived by restau­ra­teur Mourad Ma­zouz and Miche­lin­starred chef Pierre Gag­naire. sketch.lon­don
