The Sketchbook of a gentleman by Robin Lucas  I’m a big fan of Robin Lucas’s work so I was very happy to discover that he just released his first book.                                                    ‘The Sketchbook of a gentleman – London’  is a collection of whimsical illustrations of Edward, a man about town, and his London life as imagined by Lucas  ‘from ever-familiar sights to views into an exclusive world of subtle glamour and elegant understatement’

Robin’s Instagram is filled with so many inspiring images, he’s definitely one to follow!

 

Spanish fashion designer Jorge Vazquez’s Madrid apartment It was a breath of fresh air to see the home of fashion designer Jorge Vazquez’s gracing the cover of Elle Decoration España. Designed with the help of  Amaro Sanchez de Moya, this home proves that classic style can also be fun, playful and very liveable.

 

Tablesetting heaven at Pia Rubio  It’s a joy to find a place dedicated completely to l’art de la table like Pia Rubio’s store in Madrid. Pia’s taste is impeccable and is always a treat to pass by and chat with her and her team. On this occasion, they were presenting the Christmas tables and as you would expect, it was a feast for the eyes.
