Oh Hi There….

It’s been a while hasn’t it? I apologise for the silence, I’ve been a tad busy here at Love Frankie Towers, but hey, who isn’t these days? I thought a nice easy welcome back to the blogosphere would be to share a little interview I did for Style Squeeze. Run by three kick ass, super cool chums I met through instagram; Pati Robins – Photography whizz, with possibly THE best home on Instagram,  Nickie Kelly…

Colour Makes People Happy

Colour Makes People Happy is an independent paint retailer in South London. Here at Love Frankie Towers we couldn’t agree more. Founded by Simon March as a middle ground between the two extremes of the paint buying retail experience. Neither a hardware nor a stuffy interiors store, he has create a place dedicated to colour and a personal service that allows people to make decisions based on what they like and not what is considered…

Naughty Forty

I have been thinking of numbers a lot recently. Specifically, the number 1976 subtracted from the number 2016. Despite a prolonged period of denial and repeated checking of my passport, phone and calendar it would seem that the answer remains 40. Does this mean I have earned the right to begin a sentence with the words “In my day”? And would it be a better investment at this point to transplant my whole head onto…

Peace In The City

London’s Zone one. Frankie and I misspent most of our twenties here, partying up a storm and generally delaying the responsibilities of adulthood for as long as we thought we could get away with. We lived in ultra-urban Vauxhall and were often found doing the Lambeth Walk of shame through Kennington after a long night out. Respite from the hard living and urban sprawl would come in the form of a stumble along the river,…

the revenant

Congratulations to Leonardo Di Caprio on finally taking home a hard earned BAFTA award this week for his performance in The Revenant. And hard earned it was indeed. Here at Love Frankie Towers the mere act of watching that film rendered us horizontal and in need of a cup of tea. So we can’t imagine what actually filming it would have done to us. And we could have sworn we saw him take a bite…

Reading with the Small Fries

“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.” Roald Dahl Childhood is not easy. Books can offer a refuge from the challenges of being a small person in a complex world. A place to retreat into fantasy or learn from…

Grey and yellow are best buds.

Consider if you will, the constituents of the colour wheel as characters from Winnie The Pooh. Each with their own hue; from earthy and wise old brown owl to blushing, naive and jolly pink piglet. The characters that create the drama of polarity the most and whom we love to watch getting into a tangle are Eeyore and Tigger. Grey and yellow (Ok, Tigger got given a tangerine spray tan by Walt Disney but go…

Half Term Craft Off!

Around this time of year, the Love Frankie team start thinking about half term and wondering what we’re going to do with the nippers while they’re off school. A good dose of inspiration for adventures beyond the front door comes from Pippa Small and her wonderful weekly round up of what’s going on in London for small fries Urban Explorer But it’s October and there will be some days when venturing out does not appeal.…

Cop A Load Of This!

Here at Love Frankie Towers we are positively blushing with excitement at our new favourite material combination. Picture the scene if you will: hard, grey, masculine concrete against soft yielding pink hues. Finish it off with a flash of raunchy burnished copper and our knees are truly wobbling. Check out our haul of weekend goodies found at our local garden center and at the Crafty Fox Market . We especially love the beautiful handmade houses and…

Love Frankie has had a face lift!

Well hello there. Coo- ee! You. Yes you, with the intelligent eyes and the oh so discerning taste. We couldn’t help but notice you were looking at us. Positively checking us out, in fact. And why wouldn’t you? Here at Love Frankie Towers we are feeling rather gorgeous though we say so ourselves *twirls around coquettishly* And we love to be looked at. So if you haven’t already, please do have a gander at our…
