When I am in the middle of designing, I often need some scenic inspiration. London is ideal because there are lots of interesting little spots to visit.
Near Marylebone, there is a famous building called Alfie’s Antiques Market.
It’s an authentic bohemian market and you can find virtually any kind of antiques in there.
When you enter, you find yourself in a completely different world. It’s almost intimidating, because I have absolutely no knowledge about antiques and the dealers seem to know so much. But I always have great fun browsing through this amazingly eclectic collection!
There is a roof top café, where I can enjoy a refreshing cup of tea and an English scone after going through the maze of antique shops, packed full of fascinating items and some excellent bargains!
