London Style Guide

London is starting to fill up with visitors to the Games. But there is (and it's hard to remember right now) more to London than special traffic lanes about which to build local news vox pops and giant Olympic banners everywhere. Perfect timing for an antidote: here's a beautiful new book full of London's most stylish shops, bars, restaurants and hotels to ogle. 

Even if you can't visit, there's lots of inspiration to be had from some of these interiors... The London Style Guide (Murdoch Books), by Saska Graville, is out now.

Love the simplicity of the pale walls, the great dresses and this beautiful portrait. (If you are in the market for an affordable portrait to buy, check out this previous post about an excellent Etsy shop.)

The London bar/arts venue takes a pared down – and pretty achievable – approach to the idea of a living wall. I like it.

As Saska Greville writes in her description of this place, "Eclectic doesn't really cover it...less of a shop than a garage sale..." Marvellous.

Below, a couple more of the places featured in the book...

The Zetter Townhouse, Clerkenwell

Drink, Shop & Do, King's Cross
This shop/cafe/craft activity hang-out with a dancefloor in the basement is a fantastic place. Read more about it here.
