Meet me in the Lodge...

There was so much wonderful visual stimulation in London last weekend between Selfridge's glamorous arcade; Liberty's extravagant windows; and the thousands of lights setting the streets aglow; but my absolute favorite inspiration was the Fortnum & Mason pop-up Lodge cafe at Somerset House…. simple, yet…. oh, so inviting with bowls of clementines and walnuts waiting to be cracked; offerings of mulled cider and fondue to warm you up from the cold (with pieces of bread served up in one of those great little 'hampers' I was lusting after); and charming decorations creating the coziest of settings….

… if you had given us some books or a board game the girls and I may have spent the day there!  Good news is we might get the chance as I'm on a mission to replicate these easy ideas at home… with a roaring fire, comfy throws and a 'pajamas preferred' dress code to boot. :)

Anything inspiring you lately?


  1. We are all about the Lodge and the Apres ski sort of fare, fondue, hot broths and fresh cozy jammies. Love simple pop up shops that fill the air with inspiration!
    I am inspired by all the citrus and want to have big bowls full of mandarins and walnuts.....

  2. Omigosh that beanie-clad bell jar is just too darling!! I'm stealing this idea STAT! ;D
    Thank you for visiting sweets, would love to get your thoughts on my latest!
