Wow! We LOVE Lego here at Bloomsbury and I am super excited at this concept dreamt up by Access Agency. They plan to build GIANT Lego sculptures as a 'street-level promotion' for our most loved childhood brand.

Here are some photos:

Wow! Right?! For more information here is their website: Access Agency.

"You can't afford the house of your dreams. That is why it's the house of your dreams. If you had everything you ever wanted, you wouldn't have a reason to get up in the morning. Be satisfied with dissatisfaction."

Quote of the Day

"There's nothing wrong with mixing old and new, with combining different furniture styles, colors and patterns. Anything that is in your taste will automatically fuse to form an entire relaxing environment. A home does not need to be planned down to the smallest detail or contrived; it should be an amalgamation of the things that its owner loves and feels at home with."

Josef Frank 1958

We are getting pretty excited here at Bloomsbury Bristol with all the Wimbledon action going on here in the square at the moment. We have a Wimbledon themed Quakers Friars! complete with a giant strawberry selling gorgeous freshly picked strawberrys!

You can catch every gripping set and serve from the comfort of a deckchair in the outdoor grass area, enjoy traditional fresh strawberries everyday and mouth-watering local produce from the weekly Food Market each Saturday. Or sip a well deserved glass of Pimms!

On a serious note, Venus, can I borrow your amazing jumpsuit??

New Hirst Sculpture in Bristol

Before; Charity being lifted in to place

And after; on the RWA balcony

On my way to the shop i managed to catch a glimpse of the new Damien Hirst sculpture 'Charity' being lifted into place at the RWA. And then on my way back she was serenely looking out over the Victoria Room fountains.

Lavender Bods

We have just received brand new colours of our popular Lavender Bods in store. Hand knitted stripey wool bods with button eyes filled with lavender. Pop these cute bods around your home to keep everything smelling fresh like lavender!

Which colour will you choose? You can also buy them online.

Love Bloomsbury xx
