This is a recent purchase of Sally McGill's lovely ceramic mini tiles. Sally is a talented ceramicist, I love her work for the clean simple styling and great use of colour and pattern. You could say I'm a bit of a fan! @sallyvmcgill  #clay #ceramics #pottery #studioceramics #potter #ceramicart #ceramisist #pottery #ceramicmaker #designermaker #ceramicdesigner #interiordesign ##decorationinspo #interiorstyling #myhomestyle #potterylove #artisan ##artisanceramics #designermaker #handmadeceramics

Tower Bridge is recognised the world over for its quirky Gothic grandeur. It was built at the end of the nineteenth century to ease road traffic while maintaining river access to the Pool of London docks. Built with giant moveable roadways (bascules) that lift for passing ships, it is still considered to be an engineering marvel. It has been opening for ships since 1894, and although there aren't as many vessels on the Thames today, those bascules still open and close around 800 times a year. @towerbridge #gothic #gothicarchitecture #victorian #victorianarchitecture #pooloflondon #bridge #bridges #thames #riverthames #heritage #riverthameslondon #bridgelift #iconic #icons #famousbridge #bascule #basculebridge #history #engineering #london #architecture #londonist #ldn #londonlife #londoncitylife #culturalheritage #streetartlovers #outinlondon

I took this photo last week, with the unseasonably warm October Nasturtiums are still in flower. Not only are they a colourful summer plant they are also fully edible including the flowers and are delicious in salads! #nasturtiums #summerplants #summerplanting #summerarrangement #gardencentre #summergarden #outdoorgarden #plants #jungle #outdoorplants #greenery #instaplants #plantlove #plantdesign #zen #natureinspired #botanical #fresh #urbanjungle #light #outdoorstyling #containergardening #urbanliving #decoratingwithplants #urban

I took this photo on the ground floor of 'The Hive' looking up through the glass upper floor towards the sky. This is the final month that this installation will be at Kew Gardens, Richmond. Designed by Wolfgang Buttress the 17 metre high structure  previously wowed audiences at a  Milan Expo. The massive lattice structure contains thousands of LED lights which flicker in response to the activity of bees in a nearby hive! @thehivekew @wolfgangbuttress @kewgardens @kewgardensphotos #art #artinlandscape #sculpture #publicart #design #creative #ldn #creativeart #londonist #artnet #londoncitylife #outinlondon

This is one of the many stunning tile decorations on the only surviving part of the Doulton Pottery complex in Vauxhall, south London. Southbank House, tucked away behind Albert Embankment is a Grade II listed gothic style building. Apart from it's general presence, what is most striking about this building is its extraordinary range of detailed ornamentation, clearly intended to show off the Doulton product. @royaldoultan #vauxhall @royaldoultanhome #decorative #decorativetiles #history #culture #heritage #listedbuilding #gothic #gothicarcheticture #ornamentation #elaboratearchitecture #pottery #landmarkbuilding #hiddenlondon #secretlondon #londonist #ldn #londonlife  #londoncitylife #culture #industrialheritage #lambeth #lambethheritage #vauxhallheritage #lovevaux #outinlondon #londonlove

I love succulents and cacti for their sculptural forms and low care maintenance regime. The color variation of succulents seems almost endless: blue-green, chartreuse, pink, red, yellow, white, burgundy, almost black, variegated, and more. The leaves can be rounded, needlelike, berrylike, ruffled, or spiky. #cacti #succulent #succulentarrangement #succulentgarden #indoorgarden #plants #jungle #indoorplants #greenery #thepottedcactus #instasucculent #plantlove #plantdesign #zen #natureinspired #botanical #fresh #plantsindecor #urbanjungle #light #interiorstyling #containergardening #livingroomdecor #urbanliving #decoratingwithplants #urban

It's good to see that The Conran Shop in Brompton Cross, London is taking a stand against cyber-bullying. Over the past week I have been watching this bold, colourful mural grow just in time for the pre-launch of 'Be Cool Be Nice', the new book full of little reminders to be kinder and more civil, aimed at children and adults. This is a small section of the mural which runs the length of the windows on the Sloane Avenue frontage of the store. @theconranshopofficial @becoolbenice #becoolbenice #bcbn #quoteoftheday #quote #motivation #becool #benice #antibullying #antibullyingcampaign #live #positivity #happy #major #kindnessmatters #cyberbullying #stopbullying #kindness #sharelove #jointhemovement #londonist #ldn #londonlife #mural #londoncitylife #culture #artwork #creativearts #outinlondon #londonlove #instafame

With summer all but a distant memory, this is a flashback to a very hot sunny day on the beach at Rottingdean, near Brighton, West Sussex. I particularly like the way the sunlight is glistening in the ocean. @brighton @rottingdean #ocean @westsussex #beach #beachday #beaches #beachscape #sea #seaside #greatoutdoors #summer #coast #coastguard #coastguardflag #swimming #seaswimming #seasidebeach #sunnyday #relaxing #relaxingday #daytrip
'Illustrated Songs & Other Work' is an exhibition at the For Arts Sake Gallery in Ealing. These are the artworks of Martin Grover a south London painter, printmaker and fellow Brixtonite. It was a love of collecting old 45s that first led Martin to create a series of tributes to the golden age of vinyl. His bold screen prints of record covers and illustrations of the lyrics of some of his favourite tracks pay tribute to the artists and also to a passing moment in time. This acrylic work is titled 'Set of Four' (tiny canvas). @martingrover__

'Quantum Cloud' by Antony Gormley is a 30 metre high elliptical cloud sculpture sitting in the Thames adjacent to Greenwich North Pier on the Greenwich Peninsular. It is made from lengths of square tube that somehow generates a 20 metre high human figure at its centre. This art installation is definitely worth a look! @antonygormley #quantumcloud #sculpture #art #publicart #contemporarysculpture #artinthecity #artinstallation #artistsoninstagram #design #creative #ldn #creativeart #londonist #artnet #londoncitylife

Preparations for Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Light are in full swing. Rangoli as seen here is usually made during Diwali or Tihar. Elaborate patterns are created on the floor using coloured rice, dry flour, pulses, coloured sand, red brick powder and even flowers and petals. Designs are passed from one generation to the next, keeping both the art form and tradition alive. @diwali @diwali2017 #rangoli #rangoliart #hindu #india #hindufestival  #rangolidesignart #indiantradition #indiantraditions #rangolipatterns #rangolidesigns #indianculture #hinduism #folklore #hindutradition #londonist #ldn #londonlife  #londoncitylife #outinlondon
