I was invited to Liberty on Monday morning to check out their new Dining and Outdoors collections. Could there possibly be a nicer way to start the week than roaming my favourite department store out of hours to gaze at pretty pottery and eat yummy breakfast nibbles? Nope, don’t think so.

The brand-new Dining Room on the third floor contains a beautifully-curated selection of pieces, from classic Wedgwood and Spode to exclusive Emma Bridgewater ranges. Plus there’s classic bakeware, colourful textiles and some vintage goodies – a veritable candy shop for the kitchen junkie!
I fell immediately for the Edwyn Collins bird-illustrated range of plates and mugs. Even without knowing the story behind the illustrations, these are beautiful delicate drawings that translate ever so well into ceramics.
Pretty in turquoise and cream from Spode Portmeirion and Lisa Stickley.

Mega adorable animal egg cups!
The new Outdoor collection, a ‘pop-up’ curated by fabulous RE, isn’t open yet but will take the place of the seasonal Christmas collection on the 4th floor. RE have created an outdoor living collection including garden furniture, tools and al fresco dinnerware – including both vintage and in-house designed items. Amazingly, they put the entire collection together in under 6 weeks – above is one of the mood boards. Since i’m just beginning to think of ideas for our garden (currently more of an ugly ‘yard’) this was very inspiring to see.
The new Dining Room at Liberty is open right now, and the RE pop up opens on April 6th.
P.S If you fancy going shopping this weekend, grab 20% off at Liberty in this week’s Grazia magazine. That makes it rude not to, right?
