London’s very own Summerill & Bishop has just announced the launch of its new online shop, allowing Notting Hill’s favorite interiors shop to go international. Summerill & Bishop was opened by June Summerill and Bernadette Bishop, ‘choosing things not because they’ll sell, but simply because we love them’.

Summerill & Bishop stocks gorgeous housewares from around the globe including South Africa, France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Denmark and America. I dropped into their beautiful shop the last time i was in london, and as much as I’d like to jump across the pond and shop again in person, it’s quite convenient to now find this lovely shop online!

  1. See now, V., this is just DREAMY fantastic! I’d love to have a little place like this with a cozy lil’ café alongside. Maybe I should move to SFO and force you to go into biz with me? You do decor and I’ll bake and do coffee. We’ll call it “Beefy & The Bay” or “The Bay & The Beef”? Okay… we’ll work on the name. Now, what color to paint the shop door?

    Hey… why’s that “Psycho” music playin’ in the background? ;)

    Lovely post, V. :)

  2. it’s a little slice of heaven, this shop. and if you go to london, and visit this shop, eat at julie’s wine bar across the street – just as lovely!

    U.B. – bring it on! beefybythebay! :)

  3. I almost never fail to check your blog for inspiration Victoria, but $375 U.S. for a wooden ironing board is beyond even my imagination.

  4. Hi – I live here and I had never heard of this shop so thanks for making me aware of what is on my doorstep! Any place that sells lovely baskets of scrubbing brushes is for me! I know its bizarre but I love that whole brown paper and string thing…brushes, pegs, soaps. Love it.

  5. Hi! I just love your blog and hope you don’t mind that I have nominated you for The Sunshine Award on my blog! Keep up the great posts!

    Lexi :)
