A new shoppable gallery has popped up in Notting Hill - Mrs & Mr Bateman

Ingrid Rasmussen

The boundaries between fashion and interiors have been blurring recently as more and more big sartorial names open their houses up for scrutiny on Instagram, renowned architects get publicly commissioned for celebrity house renovations and new store openings come with gallery-worthy art collections. This blurring of lines is true also of galleries and hotels becoming retail spaces in a non-traditional sense and changing the very nature of both spheres. Latest to (re)enter this arena is the installation Mrs & Mr Bateman, back for a second time and now on Notting Hill's Blenheim Crescent.

Mrs & Mr Bateman is the brainchild of interior designer Natalie Tredgett, artist Selena Beaudry and vintage fashion dealer Clemmie Myers. They have combined their areas of expertise to create and curate a gallery-style installation, designing the world of a fictional couple: Mr & Mrs Bateman. The result is a riotous wonderland of colourful furniture, design pieces and clothes in a space filled with art, embroidered chairs, bespoke beaded dresses by Clio Peppiatt, wallpaper by Ottoline Devries and Konig Paints (including a bespoke 'Mrs Bateman' shade which is the perfect blush pink). Every single thing in the space is available to buy, including the wallpaper and paints, but you won't get your items until the installation shuts in three weeks.

It's the second time the trio has created such a space, with the first one existing for three days on Bateman Street in Soho. It was such a runaway success that this time around, they decided to extend it to a three week period, starting today. Hurry before it sells out.

'I Am Bateman: The Relations' can be found at 2 Blenheim Crescent, W11 from 26 April - 11 May.
