KRICKET, Brixton

Hi All,

It’s been a while! Luckily for me I have been inundated with styling work for the last six months so my blog has been put on hold for a short while. We have a good friend of ours from Brazil staying with us at the moment and she said that her friend follows my blog and had mentioned to her that I hadn’t blogged in ages and I thought ‘What? people actual notice if I don’t blog?’ I was happily surprised and now I will be back on it 🙂

Our second baby is due in 8 weeks so I will have to take time off from styling and more time will be able to be spent on blog over the next year so keep watching, peeps!

This post is dedicated to the amazing new restaurant called Kricket. It’s in Brixton, South London and been built under the arches.




Award-winning London-based consultancy Run For The Hills is delighted to reveal their design of the interior of the new restaurant. Run For The Hills has a long history working with the brand on Kricket’s creative identity, website, and designing the interior of its first Central London restaurant.





The restaurant features a signature communal sharing table (I’ve always loved the idea of sitting next to a random person at dinner and hearing some else story! Though understand it’s not everyone’s cup of tea..) surrounded by an eclectic mix of vintage bentwood style chairs, (you can pick up these chairs at most vintage shops or online like Gumtree- they are everywhere!) 70’s inspired metal framed banquettes make for a surprisingly comfortable and cool place to kick back and enjoy Kricket’s punchy, Indian-inspired cocktails & sharing plates.

Now, Kricket has also released a stunning cookbook based around the kind of Indian inspired cooking that they serve in their restaurant. The Kricket cookbook shares over 80 recipes, combining the essential spices of Indian food with modern, seasonal ingredients. Drawing on inspiration from all over India – Goa, Bombay, Hyderabad – Kricket reinvents Indian dishes that are perfect for sharing with friends and family. You can buy the book at Waterstones, here

My favourite part of the interior is the clever use of corrugated iron panels o the walls. This is one of the textures that is on my ‘dream home’ wish list. I’ve always loved the look of it- perhaps because it’s one of those materials that I feel is quite Australian and has been used in country homes/barns and sheds for decades gone by. You can buy the PVC version cheaply from retailers like B&Q to use in your own home or office.

I love it and hope you do too!
