Gaëlle's 10 So British inspirations

Do you like the cozy atmosphere of English pubs? Popular excitement? The calm of a square hidden behind colorful facades? We are on the same wavelength! Welcome to my world which combines the typical England of Jane Austen and the ultra trendy London of today. A world where Chesterfield is king and essential cocooning. A So British atmosphere to discover with this slideshow.

A place: Tom's Delicatessen


Tom's Delicatessen Planning to spend a few days in London? Here is an address to remember! Tom's Delicatessen is a café where you can have a delicious English, European, vegetarian or simply balanced breakfast, but also eat throughout the day. Ideally located in Notting Hill, the café offers a surprising decor and above all a small balcony that welcomes you on sunny days. Tom's Delicatessen: 226 Westbourne Grove, London, W11 2RH

A destination: London!


Urban Pixxels Retro, trendy, lively, the city of London is exceptional. We love it for its shops, its architecture and its unique and multicultural atmosphere. There, dare the quaint B&B and treat yourself to an English evening with dinner in a pub.

An object: the globe


Maisons du Monde If there is in my eyes an essential object, it is the terrestrial globe. But not just any globe! The globe of ancient aspect which offers us the world in a shades of brown. The advantage of the globe is that today it is available, it can be found in the form of a bar or a lamp. A boon !

Atmosphere: English cottage


Laura Ashley A comfortable fabric sofa and a leather sofa is the winning duo of the living rooms of English cottages. I love the cushions galore, the tapestries, the carpet and the curtains. The whole offers a warm and cozy atmosphere.

A piece of furniture: the Chesterfield


Cromwell Inseparable from an English decor, the Chesterfield is both chic and retro. The models are very numerous, you can fall for a traditional Chesterfield in brown leather or for an ultra modern white Chesterfield. The latter also makes all the splendor of the hall of the Murano Hotel in Paris. Murano Hotel: 13 Boulevard du Temple, 75003 Paris

A brand: Laura Ashley


Laura Ashley At the same time romantic, colorful, traditional and current, the Laura Ashley brand is simply brilliant. The label offers furniture, decorative items and linens. Something to create at home, a So British atmosphere!

One color: white


Dulux Valentine Because it highlights wooden furniture, old-style parquet floors and diffuses light, white is the ideal color. My decorating tip is to vary the shades of white to obtain a variation that is as sober as distinguished.

A designer: Sir Terence Conran


Fovea Sir Terence Conran is an English designer, we owe him two essential brands: Habitat and The Conran Shop which showcase the creations of the British. It is to Sir Terence Conran that we owe the famous Matador armchair. A genius !

An exterior: the English square


DR The city of London is dotted with squares. Some are private, others open to the public. All offer a beautiful green and natural lawn, but also full of flowers and in particular a multitude of roses. The benches are made of wood or wrought iron and the picturesque lampposts. An atmosphere to recreate in any city garden.
