Shoreditch – A Visual Diary

March 19, 2015

I’m always amazed how quickly everything changes in Shoreditch. While out and about there last week I kept seeing things I wanted to snap a picture of. So, I thought, why not do a visual diary of an afternoon out in Shoreditch?

The wonderful Ace Hotel. Cool, chilled with a great co-working space. But look at their green Urban Jungle? How cool is that for an entrance.

Ace Hotel main entrance.

Some great interiors touches. Beautiful lamp next to a hanging planter. Fab!

Yep, gorgeous Dachshund on the wall.

I’m a little in love with this green cabinet.

Hattie’s gorgeous flowershop that leads onto Ace Hotel’s Brasserie.

These daffodils definitely smell like spring, right?

The fabulous Mast Brothers are now on Redchurch Street. Got to love the packaging.

Stumbled upon Recletic in their pop-up shop on Redchurch Street, now sadly closed. They transform furniture with a pixelated twist on tradition, by fusing art, pattern, history and technology.  Spray painted by hand, their pieces are unique and really well priced. Love!

Fab night side table drawer by Reclectic.

Totally cool pattern on a beautiful side table – Reclectic.

You see some of the most inspiring wall art and graffiti in this part of town.

And for a bit eclectic fun, I loved this treatment of wired off spaces. Very inspiring indeed.

    Hi Tina,
    Great post. Made me want to wander around Shoreditch, which I haven’t done this year yet.
    I’m intrigued by that green furniture. Looks lovely. Is it made from tiles which have been painted over? And what are those bits on the top?

      That green furniture is like a cabinet from the other side. I suspect it is used by a DJ on weekends.
      The top bits are covers with hinges that one can lift. It looks purpose build and I do somehow believe it’s a music station. x
