Designed by architect Jean-Philippe Nuel and designer Natasha Stojkovic, the new three-star hotel on the Champs-Elysées is inspired by the buildings of the 1960s and 1070s, even from the archetypal facade that deploys an unassuming influence of the 1970s.
An alleyway off Dalston’s Shacklewell Lane might seem like an unlikely location for a luxury fashion boutique, but LN-CC (short for Late Night Chameleon Café) is full of surprises – even when it comes to tracking down the concept shop’s entrance.
London’s concept store offers inspirational luxury products hand-picked by global network of contributors.
The space, designed by Milanese studio Dordoni Architetti, under the guidance by Luca Zaniboni, is flooded with natural light entering the space from the side and from above. The clever choice of dark grey walls and concrete floors creates a dramatic effect – the apartment interior has an almost gallery-like quality, with Pecoraro’s extraordinary collection of furniture and art by contemporary artists and masters of design taking centre stage. Furniture by Jean Prouvé, Charles & Ray Eames, Franco Albini and Giò Ponti, mix with ceramics by Fornasetti and other lesser known artists and makers. source : yellow trace via decordemon

Opened just recently by identical twins from Belfast, Alan and Gary Keery, the Cereal Killer Café sells over 120 different types of cereal from around the world. “If we can source it, we will sell it”. They offer British, American and global cereals all at £2.50 for a small bowl with a choice of milks and toppings such as banana or marshmallows. The journalist from TimeOut asked for the most obscure cereal they have: an Oreo cereal from South Korea – “very hard to source”. A must-see !
