Liberty of London … Christmas windows 2014

I am spending far too much time reminiscing about this time last year in London … the Christmas windows, the shopping, the Christmas lights and catching up with friends !!  I couldn’t help but take a peek at Liberty’s windows this year.

Harvey Nichols, Harrods, Fortnum and Mason and Liberty excel with their window display and they simply must be seen to be believed.  In Paris it is without doubt Hermes who win the prize.

They sparkle like jewels and are surrounded by crowds of admirers and adoring children, all rugged up against the winter chill.

All this is made that much more atmospheric with the shorter days … the evening closing in by around 3.30pm.  This is the cue to head to somewhere smart like Claridges or Browns for High Tea or .. simply champagne.

This is without doubt my favourite time of year to be in London … they do Christmas like nowhere else and I can’t wait to give you a glimpse of London this time last year.
Christmas 2014 is the beach for us … and I can’t wait but am reminiscing !!

Liberty london sheer opulence

Liberty London is unique when it comes to nearly everything in the store !!! Such an Aladdin’s Cave.  This bedside table is covered in the most beautiful velvet.

Such a divine concept…..and other furniture in the collection as well.  Who ever thought velvet would even be available in such cute patterns and colours.

I can’t seem to find out the origin or designer of this range however will be on the case.  More images from Liberty tomorrow…..it is without a doubt my favourite store !!!
