Open HouseThis is the kind of shop that comes to the rescue when you're out and about picking plants on Columbia Road. You may just have loaded up on enough greenery and flowers to make your patch of grass more botanical than Kew Gardens when you realise you've got nothing to sit on to enjoy said nature retreat. Open House will be your first port of call in such a crisis and, once inside, you'll find a whole host of things to furnish your home, both inside and out, that you thought you never needed but now can't quite believe you lived without all this time. This is generally the effect of English country scrubbed tables, rustic garden pot holders and even a wooden basket (for eggs!) on those who in the all-consuming zone of making their house and garden look pretty. Open House is a charming hotchpotch of new and antique furniture and co; stuff you just won't be able to resist, especially if you love that country cottage feel.
