Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

East End resident Meryl Fernandes has owned this tiny square of a shop for about 8 years. Its first incarnation was a vintage showroom; now, it’s been treated to a Scandi-style redesign complete with whitewashed walls, minimal fittings and a new, spellcheck-baiting name. What it lacks in square feet, it makes up for in Instagram potential. A painstakingly curated edit of geometric-print stationery, stylish beauty products and tiny vases line the walls, and the central table resembles a blogger’s flat-lay come to life. Some of the brands on offer are local labels, from just down the road; others, like Korean snail-slime skincare brand Mizon and Cosette Jewellery from Japan, are completely new to London. In this corner of the capital, prettily turned-out boutiques are ten-a-penny, but this one has style and substance.
