Vintage Furniture Flea* London - Ercol chair

Vintage Furniture Flea at York Hall, Bethnal Green was cool. Smaller than I had expected - imagine a giant school hall full of vintage treasure - but was lovely nevertheless. The best thing about it? The prices. Lovely vintage pieces but surprisingly affordable. I treated myself to a beautiful Ercol chair. Note to others - *carrying a vintage chair on the tube = nutter magnet!*

Hare & Tortoise* - Ealing

Went for noodles the other night in Ealing, expecting the noodle joint to feel like... Ealing. Uh uh - I felt like I was in central London via Honshui. It was all glamour on entry replaced by simple, minamalist, eastern inspired timber interiors. Olive green padded leather banquets added some understated luxury. If I designed a restaurant interior this would be it. Check out my new second home **read extended kitchen** Hare & Tortoise.

trincket treehouse flooring*

How lush is the new eco-conscious flooring by Bolefloor? The manufacturer cuts the boards by following the trees natural curves. I could use them in my new house. There is something quite romantic about the idea of living in a tree house in West London.
