On route to Portobello Market in London I came across a fabulous little shop called Jensen and Ballentine full of French and Swedish antiques, lovely artwork, and unique decorative items. There are also fabulous vintage and industrial items mixed in-between. My kind of place, this was one of my absolute favorite shops in London.
|Gorgeous store front. Love the Swedish colors against the backdrop of this richly colored, deep navy store front. I love that dresser in the window and the mirror on top!|
|So many pretty things to choose from like French, antique chandeliers. If only I lived in London, this would be a regular destination for me.|
|Beautiful mirror atop a marble fireplace surround.|
|Weathered shutters next to shimmering artwork-- playful contrast|
|They have great factory lights and many from Belgium|
|Funny (and comforting) to see an American flag in Europe|
|Soothing paint colors on the walls and furnishings.|
|I wish I could stay!|
The sweet and smartly dressed shop owner was kind enough to let me snap a photo of her and her lovely wares. Thank you!
