For a very long time, Becketts stood as one of Southsea’s favourite go to restaurant, building a strong reputation. So, when Soraya and Jason Parker took over the pretty grade II building in 2016 on Bellevue Terrace, they didn’t quite realise the extent of the work they were going to do over the next 2.5 years. The couple both fell in love with the idea of a modern eatery in a great location but what seemed like a small renovation turned into a huge project!
Walking the breadth of Southsea looking for all the interior shops you can visit in one day was so much fun. Then I thought about the interior influencers we actually have that live on our doorstep and what their thoughts were on interior trends and design so I could share all this info with you lovely people. So I spoke to 3 wonderful influencers in interiors right now and this is what they had to say.
Albert Road has a vibe all of its own and describing it as an earthy, urban stretch is just the start. From quirky coffee shops to hair studios that keep their location a secret, lots of fun can be had here. My Interior Trail starts again at the top of the road, in Tango Tea. Talking to Jenni you begin to understand that this place was the beginning of all the eclectic shops we see around this area. Coming from Lancashire, Jenni said she was always one for not following the crowd and had her own style from a very young age.
Round mirrors have been a love of mine for over a year now but who is counting the days? The interior love for this item just keeps getting stronger every day. When you look at inspiring pictures to help you decide on a new room theme, one item that just keeps appearing is the round mirror.
