Christmas Berry

This year, instead of a Christmas tree, I decorated Christmas berry branches with fairy lights and white ribbon. It is so festive and vibrant to look at and doesn’t leave a carpet of pines beneath it. What a perfect alternative to a tree!

Chinese Painting V&A

The Chinese Painting exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum which runs until the 19th Of January is extraordinary. It is a lesson is reading visual poetry; an inspiring and fulfilling journey into a different world.

Beyond El Dorado

Beyong El Dorado; Power and Gold in ancient Colombia, is an exhibition at the British Museum and a must see. The sumptuous and rich coloured gold artefacts of Pre-Colombian artisans are stunning – I wished I could wear every piece in this ancient collection. The exhibition runs till the 23rd of March.
