HOT SHOP: Supernice

December 21, 2009

Pottering around Shoreditch in London the other day, (as you do, dahling), I thought two things. ONE: I really need to get down with the trendy East London yoof of today, which clearly involves wearing a checked shirt, a pair of skin-tight skinny jeans with braces, pointy little Victorian-booty-style vintage shoes, a cool, lop-sided hair-cut (art-student-stylee), draping yourself in handmade Tatty Devine-type trinkets (such as anchors, moustaches, etc), saying ‘LOL’ when amused, nibbling organic seeds and reading a vintage poetry book while cycling on a retro Pashley bicycle. TWO: I really should visit Supernice more often! It’s one of Columbia Road‘s NICEst shops.

There are funky melamine trays and plates from Thomas Paul, hundreds of Blik wall stickers on display, as well as some very cool stickers from Inke, needlepoint kits from Jonathan Adler, and fabulous monochrome ceramic tiles from Big Tomato. These tiles (just £3.95 each) were impossible to resist…they’re great for bathrooms and kitchens of course, but they’re gorgeous enough to prop up on a mantelpiece spelling out a word. I bought four of the anglepoise ones (top left!) and super-glued squares of felt to their bases for quick and easy coasters. I keep them stacked beside my anglepoise lamp…how pleasing! (To me, anyway. Boyfriend – not so much. In fact, didn’t notice styling touch, or congratulate. As per. Wasted, I say, wasted.)

ANYWAY, here they are for your delectation, all laid out in a super-nice way. A lot of the wall stickers are perfect for decorating children’s bedrooms, but the chandelier one would look fabulous in a glamorous grown-up dining room…

Right, I’m off to practise the whole poetry-reading-on-a-Pashley thing. I may be some time. – Ellie

  1. oh my goodness! I never know big tomato made these tiles! I love them, and I can just spot one at the top of your pic with a bike on it which would be perfect for my boyf!
    argh, I’m never gonna make it to Columbia Road before Fri!!


  2. Lovely – I have the “Curiosity killed the cat” sticker you featured above my bed. It spans the whole wall and looks really dramatic. Love the tiles with letters though, need to get down to Columbia Road again!
