NEW WAVE - ELLE DECORATION COUNTRY VOL 6 May 29 2015, 0 Comments
St Leonards rode the wave of pride thanks to the wonderful Summer edition of Elle Decoration Country this week. Thanks to the writer Rachel Ward's interview, her 4-page article highlights a sea change in 4 dilapitated South Coast seaside resorts which now, thanks to a new wave of artists and designers arriving, are seeing a wonderful regeneration. Of course run-down often means deprived but cheaper living costs have always attracted creative souls and it's this amazing creativity,community and sense of something beautifully faded that lured St Leonards' founder "K" to leave London and move down here in 2007.
The article looks at Margate, Folkestone, Hastings and good old St Leonards and as you will see if you can grab a copy, there's an interview asking each designer where they recommend to shop eat and play!
