my smug shelf

[soliloquy id=”18140″]

yesterday i was invited along by lovely blogger/stylist tiffany of curate & display to a blogger brunch and styling session at my favourite islington haunt, smug. being greeted with a cup of steaming black coffee and told that i have free rein to run amok and style up a storm in such a treasure trove of quirky delights is my kind of sunday morning activity (when i’m not nursing a hangover from the night before – then i’m all about the pancakes in bed). so, like a kid in a candy store, i set about pulling together the most citrus-hued products i could find to style up my very own #smugshelfie (see what they did there? hehe)

if you’ve ever visited lizzie evan’s lifestyle emporium on camden passage you’ll know how difficult a task it is to pull together just two shelves of goodies to style, but in the 30 minutes of allotted style time i was able to create the little vignette above, which i’m pretty darn happy with. what do you guys think; is it worth the self-awarded certificate of awesome i’ve included?

on my smug shelf: rifle paper co. journals, ruled letter opener by izola, lemons to lemonade print,  vintage steel scissors, ballpoint pens, green moss candle by izola, scholten & baijings ceramics, long john vase by lenneke wispelwey, card wallet by charlotte filshie, le cahier notebook & certificate of awesome notecard.

  1. Loving your work! I’m going to be down in London in a few weeks time and this sounds like the sort of place I could lose many an hour to, so I’m putting on my must-visit list. Thank you for posting.

  2. Wow, that sounds like a great Sunday morning! Great people and playing around with design. I think your smug shelfie turned out great.
