On a recent trip to Hampstead I was determined to visit the tiny shop Maud & Mabel. Tucked away in the antiques emporium is this little gem of a shop full of the finds of Karen Whiteley. Karen has an excellent eye and has gathered a collection of home wares and accessories that all go together perfectly, a limited colour palette of natural hues combined with the occasional blue all conspire to give a lovely, calm and serene atmosphere. Perfect pottery sits alongside vintage treasures and hand carved wooden chopping boards and spoons. If you’re in the area it’s well worth a visit.
