STORY DELI | LONDON

Inspiring place to eat in London: Story Deli Read on www.karinecandicekong.comMy favourite place to eat pizza in London is Story Deli because visually, I think it’s one of the most inspiring places to be. As a lover of white interiors, textures and vintage, Story Deli feels like a second home to me. Over the years, the Deli has moved around East London and is now located at the end of Bricklane on Bethnal Green Road. The new Story Deli is a lot more pared down than it used to be, like a more balanced, grown-up version, yet still so beautiful (you can glimpse the old one here). It has less tables than it used to have, the distressed white floorboards at the old location have been replaced by a concrete floor, the space has still heigh ceilings and as today was a nice day, I particularly enjoyed the natural light flooding from two large sky windows.

We (Steve, Mila and I) usually go there at weekends which is always packed so it was a real treat to have a late lunch today (Thursday) with my friend Catherine and share the space only with a couple of Dutch girls at the next table. The organic pizzas cost £17 each and are just scrumptious, made with a very thin base and lots of fresh, organic ingredients. I had the parma ham one which was superb (see menu)Inspiring place to eat in London: Story Deli Read on www.karinecandicekong.comInspiring place to eat in London: Story Deli Read on www.karinecandicekong.comInspiring place to eat in London: Story Deli Read on www.karinecandicekong.comInspiring place to eat in London: Story Deli Read on www.karinecandicekong.comInspiring place to eat in London: Story Deli Read on www.karinecandicekong.com

It always reminds me of the style of my design hero Jacqueline Morabito but of course, the owner Ann Shore, a freelance  Stylist, has very much her own style. Over the course of the years, Ann collaborated with Vogue Italia, British Vogue, Vanity Fair etc and the shop she used to have nearby the old Deli was like a cavern of Ali Baba to me. Ann was there today serving us. These days, there is still a space next door which is a creative window of her amazing style but nothing is available for sale except these great & practical cardboard stools that we have in our lounge.

  • The small but gorgeous flat of Agathe Perroy | BODIE and FOU Design, Interiors, Fashion & Life

    […] In the the kitchen, Agathe had the work area made to measure from exotic wood — the oven is tucked away on the side and the hot plate is also used as a cutting board. A butcher’s hook is used to suspend pots while on the wall are two vintage Jieldé lamps (you can source brand new ones from here and here). She then added textures and colours with an African oiled rug on the concrete floor.Luckily, this unrevealed perfectly preserved oak beams which she kept as a feature. With the agreement of the owners from the other flat on the ground floor, she took over the communal stairs and integrated them into her new space. The stairs now provide a visual separation between the bedroom & the open-plan kitchen/living area, Agathe created at the top of the flat. To gain space, Agathe fitted the bath in her bedroom, opposite her bed (see above). On the right hand-side, between the windows, she used vintage metal racks from a milk company to display her bath and beauty products.When it came to decorating her home, Agathe sourced a lot of objects from her family’s attics, junk shops, flea markets and even building sites.In her bedroom, the quilts on the bed were found in her grandmother’s house (Anthropologie has some pretty quilts too) and she uses banana cardboard boxes to store items from the previous season. You can find similar cardboards in Bricklane’s food market near Story Deli. […]

  • House tour: A small (42 sqm2) but gorgeous flat in Paris | BODIE and FOU Design, Interiors, Fashion & Life

    […] Dans la cuisine, Agathe fit faire un comptoir de travail sur mesure — le four est dans un coin de la pièce et la plaque de gaz est cachée sous une planche à découper. Les pots et casseroles sont suspendus avec des crochets de boucher et sur le mur, il y a deux lampes Jieldé vintage (vous pouvez en trouver des neuves ici et ici). Elle ajouta un peu de textures et de couleurs avec un joli tapis sur le sol en ciment.Avec l’accord des propriétaires du rez-de-chaussée, elle intégra l’escalier communal dans son espace pour lier les deux appartements. Ces escaliers séparent maintenant la chambre et la cuisine open-plan qu’Agathe a crée à l’étage supérieur.Pour gagner de l’espace, Agathe a positionné la baignoire face à son lit. Sur la droite, entre les fenêtres, elle utilise des vieilles étagères en fer pour ranger ses produits de beauté. Quand il s’agit de décorer son apart, Agathe aime chiner et a trouver de nombreux objets dans le grenier familial, aux puces ou sur des chantiers. Dans la chambre, les plaids sur le lit viennent de chez sa grand-mère (Anthropologie a également de très jolis plaids). Elle utilise des boites en cartons de banane pour ranger ses affaires, ce qui ajoute une note d’exotisme à la pièce. Vous pouvez trouver des boites similaires dans les marchés de fruits et légumes et au marché de Bricklane à Londres, près de Story Deli. […]
