Keep calm and carry on! Timothy Oulton is in Hong Kong

To be honest I have never heard of this brand before as a Brit because it is a relatively new brand that came out earlier this year in March 2013.

When I first saw the name Timothy Oulton, it also reminded me of Royal Doulton!

I was walking past when I was drawn to the window by the huge pillar made of real hard back books.

Then at the front of the shop, they had these mechanical displays which were hollow drums with bags that moved up and down.
A video of the mechanical displays:

Near the entrance there were two bed of real fresh roses in a metal holder which looked like a bird bath of some sort.

I did not intend to go in but when I saw the huge jars of liquorice allsorts, wine gums and dolly mixtures, I couldn't help myself but go in.

I was greeted by these two friendly guys, one was French which confused me because the shop was seemingly British but then I realized he just worked there.

Everything in this Vintage designer shop was amazing!!!

From the Union jack curtains to union jack sofas, it was just iconic!

Huge ball!!

The display of fresh roses around the store are romantic which are changed every two days and here and there you will see Timothy Oulton's classic black hat.

On one of the floors I loved the leather boots that were used to grow grass.
Although I would have expected this shop to be located in Sheung Wan or Central, the structure of this building was really suited for them because it had staircases just like British buildings.
On the second floor, I loved the HUGE leather back books which were real as well called Blenheim books!

Then there was this amazing glass table with a propeller as a base.
I don't normally like restored items but this one was amazing.
This place is definitely inspirational!~!
I loved the small metal trophies inside the glass dome.
The elegant chandeliers were inside a lovely ball frame.
For the not so modern, I liked the candle style lights in the gyro frame.
On the walls, there were some really nostalgic wooden tennis rackets.
When I can afford these amazing pieces of artsy furniture, I will definitely get them from here!
My wishlist so far would be the Blenheim book, Union jack sofa and propeller glass table.

Chic Chanel No. 5 bag

Thanks to my Pretty friend for sharing this photo with me.

It is a gorgeous Chanel No. 5 bag and not a bottle!

There is black version too, but personally I like the clear version.

If I get my hands on one, I would put mini bottles of Chanel No. 5 in the bag for a nice contrast.
