Andrew and I have had cafés on our mind lately… I thought I’d share with you a favourite find from my inspiration files… the Deptford Project Café.

Located in Deptford, South East London, this is the brainchild of graphic designer Morag Myerscough. Taking 4 months to prepare, it opened in June 2008.

I love the airyness (despite it being only a train-carriage wide space) and the WHITE, WHITE, WHITE-ness of it all. It truly allows the tabletops and the pendant shades to “pop” in this space.

I love it!
Glossy white walls.
Round walls.
No art.
Table colours.
No chairs to fight with the tables.
Sometimes stools, sometimes chairs.
Bright.
No curtains.
Bright.

And the toilet? A shrine to Elvis!

    I've been reading your blog for over a year now, but my lap top stopped getting internet access for a while and I lost my feeds. I just "rediscovered" you and as I was going through some old entries I saw this one of the Deptford Project Cafe!I was really surprised to see it here because I live about 500 metres from it and regularly walk past it / pop in for food (amazing cakes btw). The interior has changed a bit since these photos – they rearranged a bit. Maybe I could take a photo to show you?Melissa

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
