Nom de Mode’s Holiday Favorites

Chiming in with some holiday cheer, one of our favorite design duo’s (Hardeep and Mandeep of Nom de Mode) shares their favorite spots to revel in the holiday spirit throughout London this season.


Rococo Cafe on Motcomb Street: our favourite haunt for a spot of hot cocoa (our twin obsession is one infused with fresh mint) and seriously beautifully wrapped treats.; Belgravia


The Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street: evening cocktails here are of the lofty sort –  with London at your feet and the sky at almost touching distance (we like to think, anyway!), East London

Tea at Claridge’s: so at this time of year it is more difficult to get into Claridge’s than a Manolo Blahnik sample sale, but we’ve found fluttering our twin set of eyelashes can work wonders. The scones are little bundles of joy and happiness., Mayfair


Il Papiro: this Florentine gem is our year round source of exquisitely crafted stationery and hand marbled paper; perfect for gifts for your loved ones (luckily being twins we often buy each other same present, so we’re winners all round!), Covent Garden


Alex Eagle: this store is a masterclass in curation; fashion sits alongside beautiful objets, fine jewellery mixed amongst rare books. For inspiration to fill the mind and eye, and to give a gift like no other, we’ll be stalking this Chelsea townhouse right up until Christmas (and beyond)., Chelsea
