A few weeks ago we flew to London for a few days with the American Express team for Frieze, an annual art fair in Regent’s Park. I love London in October. The air is crisp and the color in the parks look like a painting. Coming straight from back to back trips from California and NYC where the weather hadn’t quite caught up to the fall season, it felt good to arrive to some coat weather. We only had about 40 hours in the city, but we made sure to make the most of it. When we weren’t checking out art galleries, we were out exploring our favorite neighborhoods (Notting Hill and South Kensington), strolling through parks and checking out restaurants for some good eats with the rest of the crew.
London has always been one of the cities I love most, so I jump at any chance or opportunity to visit. Whether it’s in the spring, summer, fall or winter- I’ve loved every trip we’ve had. You can see some of my personal favorite posts from previous visits here, here, here, here, here, here and here. But I have to say, there’s something really special about the fall. I think it’s because London has so many cozy spots to curl up and enjoy the change of the season.
Years ago, on our first trip to London together, Thomas and I visited Sketch. Chances are you’ve heard and/or seen this place dozens of times. It’s famous for its incredible pink decor, out of this world bathrooms (seriously) and delicious afternoon teas. You might remember this post from our time there in 2014. The Amex team planned a lovely afternoon for us all here and I was so happy to be back (and getting major home decor inspo again). This was actually one of the main inspirations for our pink couch!
On this trip we stayed at the beautiful Rosewood London (where we actually stayed on our trip in 2014, too!). It’s such a gorgeous hotel, and so glamorous. If you happen to stay there, be sure to check out the Library Bar, too! It reminds me of something from Harry Potter. Just reminiscing from these photos makes me want to go back, but with more time to spare!
