Weekend Guide

by Lucy Bryant, Thursday 24 September 2015

As the autumnal equinox marks shorter darker days, we at YOUhome thought our weekend guide should suggest ways to brighten up your weekend and we hope you agree with our choices! 

What better way to welcome the weekend than with cocktails at local hotspot the KPH in Ladbroke Grove! The traditional pub serves a variety of cocktails ranging from English Rose to Tequila Sunrise and accompany the weekend perfectly. If you’re peckish then KPH also serves up tasty American-diner style snacks and food which are sure to help you cosy up to autumn!

On Saturday, the Victoria and Albert museum are presenting their free to enter “What Is Luxury?” exhibit. The exhibition presents exceptional examples of modern design and craftsmanship as well as conceptual projects which all dissect fundamental ideas and concepts of luxury. The pieces exhibited aim to address the ways in which luxury is made and understood in a physical, conceptual and cultural capacity.  The exhibit only runs this wekend be sure to head to the V&A before Monday!

If all that culture has made you hungry then made sure to make you way over to Gail’s Artisan Bakery on the Kings Road for heart-warming handmade loaves of bread as well as delicious cakes and sweet treats! The café offers beautiful breakfasts of blueberry pancakes, a range of scrumptious pastries as well as fruit compote, granola and Greek yoghurt which can be enjoyed alongside freshly squeezed orange juice and freshly ground coffee. The lunch menu is equally as tempting featuring goats cheese and leek quiche, roasted pepper, feta and olive brioche and if those mouth-watering dishes aren’t enough to get you through the door then their afternoon tea is sure to. With loose leaf teas, mini sandwiches and cakes such as chocolate pecan brownie, Gail’s tea time treats is the perfect accompaniment to a culture filled morning at the V&A.

On Sunday the Book and Kitchen are hosting a ‘Sunday Sounds’ afternoon. This means that you have titled excuse for heading to a bookshop to drink coffee, listen to music, browse books and engage in relaxing conversation. To us, this seems like the perfect recipe for a Sunday as London musicians come and go from the venue playing their own music and also improvising together. This new lazy Sunday experiment is definitely worth getting involved in as the combination of music, reading and excellent coffee is (we think) a fantastic way to see the weekend off!
