Spring and early summer at Conrans at Marylebone High Street (London, UK) with flowery garden "umbrellas", stripy sun chairs (takes me back to the early 80-is when I made my owns and painted both the frame and the canvas!) (£45) and this these "soft" containers for your temporary herb garden. Inspiring!
Marimekko near Christophers Place (London UK) took me back to the 60-is, lovely colours in yellow and purple.
In Designers Guild fairly new shop on Marylebone High Street we found this "corner" in black and white with inspiration from Sweden! Up my street!
Cooked by husbands favourite dish the other night and this is the start. Fry spring onions, chopped garlic and chopped red onion in olive oil. Add grated fresh ginger, chopped fresh coriander and some chili (to taste). Add chopped tomatoes (tinned), sun dried tomato paste, tomato paste, a drizzle of honey. Let it simmer for at least 10 minutes and add salt and pepper to taste. Finally add some already cooked tiger prawns and let them just warm up...Serve with black spaghetti (squid ink pasta) or any other spaghetti of your liking. Top with some fresh coriander. Spicy and different, a marriage between Thai and Italian!
Finally, Brisi always has very nice window displays. Notice the lover flowerpots "in flower".
