London Lights

I love London by night, it feels kind of magical. These Christmas lights have made it feel even more beautiful.
Oxford Street
South Molton Street
Covent Garden...

Christmas Windows - Pt 3

Last, but certainly not least is Selfridges  with their 'Awake the child within' theme...and it definitely did! The festive windows encourage both adults and children alike to revel in the play time scenes. The attention to detail is fantastic, with every corner of the window offering little surprises. Definitely the one to see this Christmas!
 I secretly want this Barbie chandelier!

Christmas Windows - Pt 2

Some more wonderful windows to feast your eyes on. Starting with Harvey Nichols fun and frivolous theme, with each window representing a famous Christmas song...accompanied by the actual music!
Fortnum & Mason's windows ooze class. A collaboration with The National Gallery sees the store reinterpret some of the classic paintings housed in the museum
A nod to a William Claesz still life...
...Canaletto's Venice...
and Hendrick Avercamp's  'A Winter Scene with Skaters near a Castle'
As well as framing some of their wonderful goodies to make a perfect picture

Christmas Windows - Pt 1

One of my favourite things in the run up to Christmas is going to see the wonderful window displays in all the big stores. There are some really great ones this year. Here are two to get you started...
Harrods 'Vintage Christmas with J.M Barrie's Peter Pan'
Liberty's 'Wonderfully Wild Christmas'
