LUMA Arles

LUMA Arles, Parc des Ateliers

On Monday I visited LUMA Arles, the latest arm of The LUMA Foundation whose aims (according to their website) are ‘to support the activities of independent artists and pioneers, as well as institutions working in the fields of art and photography, publishing, documentary and multimedia.’


Soho Farmhouse Design Appreciation

Soho Farmhouse Deli

You know its going to be a good party when your friend chooses Soho House as her wedding venue. Day 2 of our May mini break saw us heading to Soho Farmhouse in the Oxfordshire countryside. I know that the south of France could be considered a pretty foodie place to live, but honestly my local epiciere has nothing on the SFH deli …in content or looks.



The Radcliffe Camera, Oxford

Kicking off a much-needed May mini break, Mr Hope and I landed in Oxford last week for just under 24 hours worth of culture, students and glorious sunshine.


Mini Walking Tour of London, part 1

So, I love walking. I think its the best way to see a city and my recent work trip to London gave me a couple of free afternoons to march around Britain’s capital. For this first walk I got off the tube at Covent Garden made my way to Cecile Court, where two dapper gentlemen were browsing antique maps.
