Love Bloom is all about moments that feel romantic, almost magical. You can find it in fashion, architecture, food, and when you explore London you’ll start to see it everywhere – in its parks, its intimate restaurants and its palaces.
Pretty in pink – soft shades can make the entrance to your home feel fresh.
Love Bloom takes inspiration from English landscape gardens, summer-evening strolls and impromptu picnics.
Adjoining the royal residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Will and Kate to you and me), Kensington Gardens is a suitably romantic spot.
Try afternoon tea at sketch Gallery (left), with its fantastical, high-ceilinged interior of pastel pinks for a contemporary dinner à deux. With garlands of flowers hanging overhead, Clos Maggiore (right) is more traditional – this year, Architectural Digest declared it the world’s most romantic restaurant.
Love Bloom has a certain sweetness to it, one that’s complemented by food. Dainty cakes and desserts are best – here we have Aida Mollenkamp’s Hazelnut mascarpone French toast sandwiches, ideal for sharing with someone special.
