My Design Weekends

london revisited one sunday afternoon

Deirdre Brennan - Sunday, April 22, 2012


Sitting here in the Southern Highlands on a gloomy Sunday afternoon.....skies grey and misty rain falling....I am transported back to London.  I am always reminded of London in this sort of weather.... for obvious reasons and I absolutely adore it!!!! Very strange indeed for a Queenslander.


I thought I would reminisce by flicking through my London experience that would be so much more enjoyable had I printed off actual photos and put them in an album.  Nevertheless, I searched through My Pictures file on the computer and found myself lost in the memories of my home away from home.  Any number of hours have elapsed and here I am still indulging both myself and you with my favourite buildings.....the ones that just capture a moment or a mood.


Rows of elegant white terraces, Georgian townhouses (or Annabel's nightclub for those in the the beautiful Berkeley Square) or Claridge's Hotel in Mayfair for afternoon tea.



I have always loved the Michelin Building in South Kensington .... not just for the building itself but for the activity that surrounds it...Walton Street, Draycott and Sloane Avenues, the V&A and on it goes......what I would give to be there right now !!


There is always something extremely comforting about the London Pub ...  particularly after a day shopping.

Or just head for Somerset House on the Strand and spend a lazy Sunday afternoon exploring the Impressionist collection at the Courtauld Gallery .... that's what I would be doing if I were there right now !!
