For The Love Of Pink, London's Stylish Restaurant Sketch Grabs Our Attention

This Week's Favorite Restaurant 
Around The World,
Ingenius Design at Sketch in London
 Designer India Mahdavi (recently made Architectural Digest's AD100 list) created the space--a monochromatic, super modern interior.  It's one part classic another part modern and channels a space age sensibility. A friend just returned from London and dined at Sketch, and came home offering rave reviews.  It's topping our list of "must visit" restaurants next time in our favorite city.  Not to mention the entire space is swathed in pink (my favorite shade of this color), and we love the avant-garde approach to dining, as well as the thought that went into every detail in the restaurant from the art down to the wait staff's uniforms.  Every two years the restaurant dedicates the entire space (even tabletop) to a celebrated artist.  The artist in-residence currently is David Shrigley who tranformed the gallery space into a beautiful array of his works, and created funky sketched tableware. With 239 illustrations and works lining the walls, this is the largest group of original Shrigley has exhibited.

fashion designer Richard Nicoll designed uniforms for the wait staff which completed the aesthetic.  If you score a reservation while in London, please send us a photo so we can dream.
Happy Nesting
