A couple of weeks ago I was invited by Redbrick Mill along to their event in conjunction with Nicola who you will know from The Girl with The Green Sofa. I’ve been to Redbrick a few times as it is literally down the road from me but I often forget how much of a interiors treasure it is. Nicola is an ambassador for Redbrick and is keen on really showing off what a powerhouse the North can be, not everything has to be centered around London! This is a topic I’ve been talking about a lot lately, it seems that over the past year and a half events and opportunities have dried up a little. I’m hoping this is a turning point…
When we arrived you could see Nicola’s famous green sofa pride of place, you almost felt like you’d stepped into her living room. Of course when I was looking around I made a bee-line for the Made blue velvet sofa, this is the one I want and one day it WILL be mine. Manifesting that now. (Thanks Emma)
We toured the whole of the Mill, it was great to see that there are pieces to suit all budgets and tastes. I was drawn to velvet and darker interiors on my wander around, of course.
We were treated to some amazing food from Filmore & Union, I think I tired one of everything. Their food is fresh and locally sourced too. I’ll be stopping by to try some of their fresh juices next time I’m there.
It was great to spend time with other ‘influencers’ who are all about championing the north. Redbrick was the perfect setting and has further cemented itself as THE interiors destination in the North in my eyes. I’d like to say a big thank you to Bo Concept, Heals and Made for gifting us some amazing goody bags to take home. I’ll be sure to drop by Redbrick very soon, I need that sofa ok?
