NOT TO MISS
Lorna Simpson’s inaugural exhibition at
Hauser & Wirth London, Unanswerable,
features new and recent work across three
different media: painting, photographic
collage and sculpture. Simpson came to
prominence in the 1980s through her
pioneering approach to conceptual
photography, which featured striking
juxtapositions of text and staged images
and raised questions about the nature of
representation, identity, gender, race and
history. These concerns are reflected
throughout the exhibition to present the
artist’s expanding and increasingly multidisciplinary practice today.

FAITH
Based on writer Guleraana Mir’s real
experience of interracial and intercultural
relationships, Coconut will embark on a UK tour this
summer. This fresh new play challenges dated Asian
female stereotypes with an honest portrait of the
contemporary British Asian experience. With its
unremitting humour, Mir explores the impact of
religion and faith – and the lack of it – in
modern romance. Coconut will see
the professional debut of Kuran
Dohil as Rumi and will play from
11-28 April at Ovalhouse in
Kennington.

KIM WILDE ON….
Her brother, Ricky
“Working with Ricky is wonderful. We’re so
close in age it’s a bit like being a twin.
There are places in our heads where we’re
very different, but when it comes to music
we’re on exactly the same page.
We grew up together, had all the same
musical influences and both absolutely
love pop music. It’s been our big passion
since we were kids.”
Kids in America
“I absolutely love performing it now, but
there was a time when I really didn’t enjoy
it and that was when I took a step back,
got married, got into horticulture and had
babies. I’d had enough of singing Kids in
America at that point. I was 36 and had
been living with the song for 16 years.
It was a relief to give it a rest, pursue other
interests and put my family first.”
Touring with Michael Jackson
“When they asked me to do the Jackson
tour, I couldn’t believe it and I remember
saying to my mum: ‘This is ridiculous!’ But
she gave me that conversation that
mothers have with their daughters and
told me that I was the best thing since
sliced bread, and I fell for it!
I was completely inspired by watching him
when he was at the top of his game.”
Advice for her younger self
“Listen to your instincts. People often go
wrong when they ignore the voice inside
their head.
There’s a lot of wisdom in there, if only
you’d listen to it. And follow your dreams,
follow your passion, don’t put it off too
long. Life passes by very quickly – don’t put
things off.”
The music industry
“I think the music industry is as vibrant as it’s
ever been. The social media aspect,
streaming and downloading is all really
exciting to me.
The fact I can walk across the field and
talk to my phone and say ‘Hey Siri, play
me some David Bowie’ and all of a
sudden a track pops up on my phone, I
think it’s fantastic. There’s something really
magical about the way you can access
music now.”

THE QUICK LIST
Don’t miss out on some of the hot new
openings for this month
Forget the chocolate eggs! This Easter, it’s
all about chocolate drinks for the grownups. The traditional Easter egg hunt has
been ousted by the search for the perfect
chocolatey cocktail – enter Be At One’s
new limited-edition Easter cocktail, the
Honey Bunny, as they have partnered with
award-winning chocolate liqueur brand,
Mozart, to create the ultimate cocktail.

Bluebird Café will open its doors on
11 April in the heart of the mighty
£8b Television Centre regeneration.
The café’s vibrant interior has been
designed by David d’Almada’s
Sagrada and incorporates a mix of
British styling from the 1960s and
modern Bluebird Chelsea glamour.
Alongside the café and bar, there
will be a spacious terrace looking
over the Television Centre’s famous
circular core.

Delamina, an 85-cover Eastern
Mediterranean restaurant from
husband and wife team Limor and
Amir Chen, is now open in Marylebone.
Delamina follows its older sibling, Strut &
Cluck, which opened in 2016 and has
already become something of a
Shoreditch favourite.

Embark on a journey of discovery at
The London Coffee Festival,

ever. Over 250 exhibitors and 35,000
coffee lovers are expected from

The recently opened United Chip has
been reeling in even the most discerning
fish and chip devotees since it opened
recently in Clerkenwell. And now there’s
another reason to visit: the insanely
delicious Soft Shell Crab Burger has arrived.
A heavenly combination of tempura soft
shell crab, lettuce, pickles and Bangkok
mayonnaise in a wonderfully soft brioche
bun, it really is a thing of beauty.

MIX IT ALL UP
Roundhouse offers their insight into the top kitchen trends of
2018, from textured metallics to vivid colour
Words BETHAN ANDREWS
hat better
place is there
to do the
mixing than in
the kitchen? Gone are the
days of banks of sterilelooking kitchens, because
today’s kitchen furniture is
more about mixing it up. The
big trends include:
introducing layers of texture
using metallic finishes and
highly textured surfaces; using
pops of vivid colour and
cabinetry that looks more like
furniture and integrates better
in open plan kitchen spaces.
And another trend is to work
with structural elements, like
RSJ’s (rolled steel joists) and
rather than box them in, use
colour to bring them to the
fore, a look particularly
favoured in new kitchen
extensions.
We asked Roundhouse,
the award winning bespoke
kitchen company that has
been instrumental in
introducing texture and
developing unique metal
finishes, to tell us more about
the metal trend. Director
Jamie Telford said: ‘Matt and
high-gloss lacquers in kitchens
will always be popular but
metal wrapped doors and
panels and textured surfaces
for cabinetry in the kitchen
are an emerging trend –
people are moving away
from uniformity and looking
for more individuality and
we’ve developed an
exclusive range of metal
wraps in matt-sanded Brass
and Copper, Antique Brass,
Antique Copper, which work
alongside more traditional
finishes like painted matt
lacquer.’
Finishes such as metal
wraps are reflective and rich,
with depth and texture and
when used with matt or gloss
lacquers, beautiful book-

matched veneers or textured
finishes, they can create a
layered effect. As they age
they acquire a natural
patina, which adds to their
beauty and richness. Other
glamorous metallic finishes
include Burnishes Copper
and Bronze, and Hammered
Silver, which gives a more
textured look.
Look out too for highly
textured finishes like rough
sawn Oak ply, or a deeply
riven river-washed finish and
use them in unusual
combinations with simple
hand-painted matt lacquer
or beautiful polished
concrete that acquires its
own patina with age.
With many choosing to
open up their kitchen, dining
and living areas into one
large space, kitchens are
much more than utilitarian;
they’ve become a social hub
as well as a food factory. This
preference for open-plan,
which accommodates zones
for cooking, dining and a
general living area means
that the kitchen furniture
needs to look as good as it
can, as it often extends into,
and becomes part of the
general living space in many
homes. Using cabinetry in
unusual materials and finishes
echoed throughout openplan spaces means the lines
between kitchen and living
areas can be effortlessly
blurred. Freestanding furniture
such as the beautiful
Nightingale cabinet can be
employed to display favourite
china and glass.
New kitchen extensions
often involve structural
elements like RSJ’s but
another emerging trend is to
make a feature of them and
paint them to work with the
kitchen colours rather than
boxing them in and hiding
the structure away.
Whatever trend floats your
boat, with judicious thought
and planning and the help of
a good designer, you can
create a stunning kitchen that
will last the test of time.

WHAT’S COOKING
Kitchen appliance makers have cottoned on to the
fact that their clients are prepared to be more
adventurous with the hues they choose for key
pieces such as freestanding fridges or range
cookers, like this Everhot, which comes in a range of
14 colours from neutral to bold.

SPRING GREEN
A pop of colour along the handle rail of this kitchen is a neat
design detail and a more subtle way to introduce a bright shade
if you are not yet ready to take the plunge with coloured units.

HOMES
INSIDER
The latest in interiors by Kara O’Reilly
How to make a house your home
Kate Watson-Smyth, the journalist behind
the popular – and influential – interiors blog,
Mad About The House, has collated all her
knowledge with regards to the process of
creating a home and making it your own into
her new book. Written in a likeable and
approachable way, it’s an easy read, as well as a useful
resource for those who love interiors, but aren’t quite sure
how to go about introducing new decorating ideas or
styling tricks into their own domestic arrangements. A
sourcebook to help everyone make the most of their
home – whatever their taste.
Buy your copy of Mad About The House (£20, Pavilion) for
the special price of £16 (inc
p&p) by calling 0844 576 8122
and quoting offer code CH2014

Colourful bedding is back in vogue and Piglet is one of
the specialist companies that have sprung up to sate our
desires for lovely dyed linens. The new kid on the block,
former fashion and luxury goods PR Jessica Mason,
founded it just over a year ago. Having worked for
brands including Christian Louboutin and Ray-Ban, it’s
no surprise then that her boutique bedding brand is
very much on-trend, as well as being made from
French flax, which gives it a lovely lived-in quality
that just gets better with age. The latest
addition to the range is, but of course,
some trad-style PJs.
From £32 for a pair of pillowcases;
£40 for pyjama top, all

HOT OFF THE PRESS
Well crafted
Make a slot in your diary to get
down to the new crafts
showcase, 67 York Street in
Marylebone, at the end of the
month for a look at Collective
Invites. It’s a selling exhibition of
the work of eight designermakers who have all been on
the Craft Council’s Hothouse
Scheme. From textiles to furniture,
it covers most modern craft
disciplines and I defy you not to
be tempted to invest in, say, one
of Hannah Tounsend’s fabulous
overscaled vessels or Jackie
Puzey’s show-stopping
embroidered pieces.
