London had a bus strike last week and it was a shambles. The bus companies were advising that you take a tube, the tube companies were advising that you take a bus and I just got so fed up with the whole thing that I ended up walking what felt like half way across London. It turns out that walking to work is pretty awesome as my route takes me along some of the most breath-taking sites and buildings that London has to offer. One such building is Hotel 41 near Buckingham Palace. The black and white chequered floors with the dark wood panelling in the lobby immediately caught my eye – it just looks so warm and inviting and… actually quite British! It turns out that the rest of the hotel is just as elegant and chic. I am particularly fond of the simple monochromatic colour schemes in the bedrooms and the beautiful light fittings throughout!
