Home for Now + Thornback & Peel Launch Party!

Home for Now & Thornback & Peel Launch Event

I’m delighted to announce that, to celebrate the launch of my book, Home for Now, I will be holding an exclusive launch event in the super-lovely Thornback & Peel! Having been big fans of the brand since their early days, first discovering them at a Cockpit Arts Open Studios event, it’s been lovely seeing them go from strength to strength and make the move from online to bricks and mortar retail. Famed for their quirky graphic prints, showcasing classic British motifs in striking colourways on crisp white backgrounds, their first retail store, in the particularly charming area of Bloomsbury, London, is as quintessentially British as they are. When I first started thinking about what I’d like for my launch (quirky shop selling handmade British goods that I could slope into the corner of, centrally located but nowhere too hustly-bustly, intimate yet enough room to swing a cat/book) it soon became apparent they were the perfect fit. And luckily, they agreed!

Inside Thornback & Peel

So on Thursday 24th April I’ll be playing shop for the day. We are turning the back wall into a ‘living’ version of the book cover, and decorating the space and windows throughout with some of the styling ideas showcased in the book. Signed copies will be sold on the night for a discounted price of £15, and there will also be a prize drawer to win a copy including a goodie bag packed with home-for-now-friendly treats for your home (psst – this competition will also be duplicated online on Mon 28th April, so come back then for more info!)

The display will remain up in-store until Friday 2nd May, so if you’re in the area whilst it’s on, do pop in and take a gander – the shop is stunning as are its surroundings, next door to fabulous homewares emporium Ben Pentreath and just off from the olde-worlde cobbled Lamb’s Conduit Street, home to a number of fascinating independent shops including Darkroom, Persephone Books and Folk. Find Thornback & Peel at 7 Rugby Street, London WC1N 3QT; nearest tube Russell Square and also walkable-in-flats from King’s Cross or Holborn.

If you’re a member of the press or an interiors blogger and would like to attend the launch, please email publicity@cicobooks.co.uk or jo@joannathornhill.co.uk for a place on the guest list.
