The Secret Arcade was featured in October's issue of The Resident Magazine - a substantial guide to all that is of interest to the culture aficionados of West London. As it was for the interior section Turner Pocock was singled out and the Louise Body window selected from The Secret Arcade's Home Decoration passage to illustrate an internal view - we are sure this piece will have found its way into the little black books of many of its discerning readers for future reference.
Honourable treatment for the littlest room in the house
Louise Body gets a second mention this week. She was commissioned by UBM the organisers of Decorex to design some bespoke wallpaper for the rest room foyer area. Designing the toilet wallpaper at first sounded like a dubious honour but it was incredibly well received and they are now planning to add it to the collection!
To view all of Louise Body Wallpaper designs and Interior accessories visit her shop in the Home Decoration passage of The Secret Arcade.
Find winter refuge at The Secret Arcade
Winter nights are drawing in fast and we have been thinking of ways to spend cosy evenings indoors. As new knitters and sewers we don't need much encouragement to spend a happy hour or two (or three!) with a bag full of gorgeous wools and fabrics. One of our new favourite shops is Ray Stitch - an Aladdin's cave of fabrics and wools. They have a lots of new treats in store this month ready for you to dust off the knitting needles and sewing machine to create something stylish for the autumn wardrobe? Maybe you're already thinking about getting ahead of the game for once and having a few beautiful hand made presents ready in good time for Christmas? And what about seasonal parties and social events? It's never too early to start thinking about that. Are your party outfits lined up and looking tickety-boo!
You can view a whole host of haberdashery delights in the Ray Stitch shop which is located in the Fashion and Accessories passageway at The Secret Arcade.
