Caravan style


Tomorrow I am going into town to look round some design shops for some blog inspiration. One shop which has always been on my list to check out is Caravan. I saw the owner, Emily Chalmer's home in a magazine a few years ago, and I loved it - these are the photos of it. I can't wait to visit the shop - as if it reflects the below style aesthetic, then it's going to be right up my street.




I love the concrete light bulbs, which are available online.

Isn't it great when a collection of shoes and dresses can make a pretty display on their own? I think the skirts are made from old vintage curtains.

Hi Lynne
Thanks for the post fixing advice, I'll try it.
Love to know what you think of Caravan, it was on our list of places to visit on our last trip to London but we ran out of time!

I am so obsessed with big long wooden tables paired with modern chairs--just like in this loft. GORGEOUS!
