We have created some inspiration for the month of July. Fingers crossed for some sunshine!
Make your escape and book a Mr & Mrs Smith break. Choose from beautiful boutique Bed & Breakfasts, vintage hotels for old school charm and fantastic hotels for families.
We love the Number Thirty Eight Hotel in Bristol (and not just because our Henrietta & Montague beds are in the bedrooms.) An elegant Georgian townhouse set in the centre of the city it is perfect for exploring all that Bristol has to offer. With stylish interiors and intriguing art and some of Bristol’s best breakfasts it really feels like a home from home.
The Story: Struggling with a failing marriage he knew was doomed from the start. Thomas Nesbitt tries to avoid the past but when a box arrives from Germany Thomas is transported back to an intense love affair he had set in the context of the Cold War when East & West Berlin were divided. This is a beautiful story, and more than just a romance - I promise you will not want to put down.
It may not feel like summer but we are wishing it would arrive. Click here for a summertime recipe for Strawberry & Rose Rice Pudding from Country Living magazine, making us feel summery despite all the rain.
One Fine Day... the summer season is upon us, we expect that you have all had your invites for weddings, garden parties and picnics. We love the classic cut and colour of this coast dress, the extravagent beautiful Vivienne Westwood Shoes and the floral print of this Virgos Lounge dress.
Finally, number five - with the focus on London over the Summer why not enjoy all that the city has to offer we love the enigmatic Highgate Cemetery or for kids try the Little Angel Theatre in Islington for shows which are perfect for your little ones.
