  • Meet Lil Caldwell of Grandirosa

    flowers

    Lil Caldwell of Grandirosa floral design studio is the woman behind the beautiful blooms that you'll see in all our Cowshed x Mary Katrantzou images. We asked her how she came to work with flowers, the inspiration behind the Cowshed shoot and for some expert tips to get the most out of your own arrangements at home.

    'For the shoot, we predominantly used big blooms for impact and texture. The design of the bottles was perfect inspiration! Matching the vibrant colours of the packaging, we selected English roses with the most perfect scent, different varieties of dahlias, delphiniums and stems of flowering dill, freesia and crocosmia. Very much the best of summer. Dahlias are having a 'moment' at the minute - the variety you can get in colour, size and shape makes them perfect for creating really impactful floral design. They feature in many forms in the images - blush Cafe Au Lait dahlias which are huge (sometimes they are called dinner-plate dahlias), pom-pom dahlias in vibrant corals and orange and Withy Pitt dahlias which are grown by a specialist grower in West Sussex.

    Anna Hart runs South Molton St Style, a fashion and lifestyle blog packed with beautiful images and helpful tips for anyone seeking a bit of style guidance or inspiration. We sent her along to our spa at The Ned to try our new Detox Pedicure - the perfect treat for post-summer feet before they go into their winter 'hibernation'...

    'It’s easy to forget about your feet when the colder months arrive with them being buried in shoes and socks, but after a summer of bright coloured nail polishes, sand and welly-clad festivals my hooves are looking anything from presentable by the time autumn comes along. Even though I go for regular massages to treat aches and pains in my back, neck and shoulders I hadn’t considered offering the same TLC to my feet.

  • Spa of the Month: Clarendon Cross

    cowshed_sign

    Tucked away in a tranquil, leafy enclave of Holland Park in West London is Cowshed, Clarendon Cross. It's known for its delicious dishes as much as our ever-popular pedis, with people popping in and out throughout the day for coffee, cake, treatments and chats creating a bustling but relaxed vibe. Spa manager Liz explains the charm of this true neighbourhood spa.

    'Clarendon Cross was the original Cowshed spa [in London] – it’s been here 12 years and a lot of our clients have been with us that whole time. We have a lot of locals who see the same therapist that they’ve seen for years. We work closely with all the local businesses and have really good friendships with the residents. Clarendon Cross and Primrose Hill are the only two Cowshed spas with a café so that makes us unique – you can sit and have avocado on toast while having your pedicure. It’s quite a social hub for the community.'
