Holland Park

Establishment neighborhood
Summerill & Bishop
100 Portland Rd., Holland Park
Born out of a friendship between June Summerill and the late Bernadette Bishop, their store is one of Holland Park's hidden gems, worth venturing a few minutes out of Notting Hill to visit. With an eye for hand-crafted home goods - June & Bernadette forged relationships with many international ceramicists, textile artists and glassblowers - and merchandise their goods in their own style. The best hand painted tablecloths, in an array of patterns all designed in their in house studio, handblown glassware, plus essential kitchenware round out the offerings. This is a dreamy, beautiful store that is 24 years strong. They've also recently opened a second store in Belgravia at 58 Elizabeth Street, and sell internationally through their website summerillandbishop.com
Cowshed Holland Park
119 Portland Rd., Holland Park
We love Cowshed for its minimalist yet cozy vibe and deeply therapeutic treatments that always deliver. The Holland Park location, which has an organic café, is probably our favorite. The Signature Facial is intensely skin-clearing and includes steaming, exfoliation, extractions, and a killer scalp massage. Pro tip: Supercharge it with a 15-minute cryofacial add on, in which your face is whooshed with chilled air to smooth, detoxify, and energize skin.
