How inventive is this totally cool pop-up Indian restaurant! Dishoom Chowpatty Beach is in London's Southbank and is a stunning example of what a little upcycling can do... Check out the walls made from rolled newspapers and the railway sleeper seating. Not to mention the jam jar lights and drop dead gorgeous vintage bentwoods repainted in all of their fabulousness! The restaurant wanted to celebrate all that Chowpatty Beach in Bombay represents. Colour, fun, nostalgia and good times. I want to go for a Pim's and a curry here don't you?

With these windy winter days we are yearning for some fresh spring combo's. Mint and Raspberry has always been an IvP favourite and the flamingo wallpaper is such fun! I tried to convince a client a couple of years ago to wallpaper her beach house foyer in the Cole and Son fun print but we went for something more tropical instead. Have a sunny Wednesday!

Mag Review: Jonathan Adler

Did you catch our designer Bio in this issue???? We love Jonathan Adler and his amazing products and interiors. But above all we love his style the way he confidently combines colours and pattern. A master at his craft but with such a sense of humour! We had to post his manifesto found on his website. Don't you think we should all have a personal manifesto just like this? Love it... so true. We love how Mr Adler tries not to take himself too seriously after all designing is fun!

When you go on a fabric hunt you must wear suitable footwear and I have put my silver fancy flats to the test in recent weeks looking for gorgeous cushioning fabrics for the new showroom which is almost complete. And in our search we came across these gorgeous Viant florals!!!! I spy some Ivy and Piper favourite colourways too. We are loving the lilac, aqua, pink, orange and green combinations. So fresh so IvP!

Thanks to Will at Bright Bazaar for his gorgeous post on Josie Curran's houseboat. How divine and loving the colour, colour, colour! I think our favourite is the cluster wall with the cute antique cot (just like Penelope's)... then again that dining room is gorgeous and the lounge and the bedroom... oh so inspiring! Don't you just want to take a trip down the Thames in this little number?

xx Happy Sunday
