Over the Easter weekend, we took a trip to London. Its been quite a few years since we were last there and the city seems even faster paced and more exciting than ever.
Although I’ve been to London many times in the past, I have never been to Liberty on Regent Street and had heard so many wonderful things about it, that it was on the top of my list of places to visit this time.
The building itself is a thing of beauty, with it’s mock tudor exterior and dark wood interior carvings and the most dramatic vaulted ceiling I have ever seen.
The array of merchandise is fantastic, with an outstanding designer vintage department, stocking the most exquisite pieces. I could have spent hours in there, but with my two children on board, I had to prioritise my time and I couldn’t wait to get to the fourth floor where the interior department is housed. I wasn’t disappointed, the range of stock was so eclectic with mid century modern pieces, nestled amongst eastern carpets and wall hangings and quirky accessories such as Abigail Aherns dog lamps.
My favourite section was the RE concession which was an amazing mix of recycled, up cycled and vintage style pieces from far and wide. There was also a lovely garden section with beautiful artistic visual merchandising displays.
I left clutching my purple and gold carrier bag containing my purchases, a tin sign with a large red number 2 on, a small rusty Eiffel Tower ( you know my love for all thing Paris?) and some red and white bakers twine, always useful.
I think next time I need to go without the kids and with a pocket full of cash?
