Hi MLE,I just discovered the most amazing shop! It's easy to miss, as it is hidden in a beautiful Grade I listed church right in the middle of busy Shoreditch, near our studio. The church itself (a maze with its mezzanine and chapels), is the perfect backdrop to the gorgeous 18th and 19th century architectural items from around Europe.It's actually more like stepping into the back room of a museum, where pieces are getting ready for presentation.It's fun to walk around and imagine what what the residences and owners of all these items must have been like... I discovered it on a walk back from lunch and ended up getting stuck in there for over an hour!On my way out, I found this plaque near the door:IN LOVING MEMORY OF GEOFF WESTLAND, 1940 - 2013FOUNDER OF WESTLAND LONDON"There is a need for our civilisation not to trash and rationalise everything. Once the soul departs from a concern and it is viewed only as a brand or a product and left to the blinkered herd of fiscal or commercial professionals - the game is over."Westland London. Let's go when you're here next,Suzan

I am so pleased to say that Brigitte's site is now live. Her work is amazing, Brigitte herself is absolutely lovely to work with. The gorgeous imagery is showcased in a fluid fashion that is easy to access for busy directors and agents.
Well, back to work after one of our busiest summers...

Hello the MLE,Exciting news this week: my beautiful Boston Terrierist Beatrix made her debut at the studio. It went well! You can see in the photo above that she just slept. I have included a photo of Chad when he used to come to work with me. You can see that he was much more productive. Less lazy.I was reading this scholarly article from the University of Southern California regarding the benefits of bringing dogs to work. In sum:- Spending too much time too close to a project, problem, or other work can inhibit productivity and cause unnecessary stress. Pets remind people to pause and step back from whatever they are involved in.- Pets can create camaraderie within the workplace and trigger interactions that may not have happened without them. Better communication leads to more trust, a key component in a successful work environment.- Pets at the workplace make employees happier, lower stress levels, and create a comfortable, flexible environment. Reduced stress means less stress-related ailments and the healthcare costs that accompany them. So true.Have a nice weekend!Suzan xx
