Two words: let’s go.

Next time you’re in London strolling along the Strand, be sure to pop into Bronte Restaurant & Bar. Designed by Tom Dixon’s interiors group Design Research Studio (DRS), the multi-level space features large archways, terrazzo floors, jungle green leather banquettes, two bars (one pink concrete, one pewter), pink chairs, and lots of brass and ombre glass lighting by the designer himself. It’s a bit deliciously deco, and until you step out onto the patio overlooking Trafalgar Square, you may just think for a moment you’re in Miami Beach (palm trees included).

Creative Director

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).
