Hello Autumn!

September is already upon us. Instead of mourning the loss of the summer, let’s make crisp and colourful Autumn something to look forward to.
Firstly, why not treat yourself to a delicious meal and cocktails at Notting Hill’s latest new offering, Haya. Drop us a line and we’ll book you the perfect table. Haya is a glorious new Mediterranean restaurant, taking influences from Tel Aviv.
Now you are back from soaking up the sun, what better time to think about refreshing your home and bringing those exotic and colourful vibes back with you. Maya Glass Studio can do just that. Maya’s stunning stained glass window designs are something to behold and incredibly unique. Get in touch if you’d like her to work her magic in your home. Alternatively, try your own hand at her upcoming workshop and create your own.

Whilst you’re revamping your home, Melissa LaFave’s creations cannot be missed. Her vibrant and stylish glass lamps and trays add a vivid touch of colour and class to any surroundings. Her trays are also the perfectly stylish gift anyone would love to receive.

Fancy awakening your senses and treating your taste buds? Try some French madeleines like you’ve never tried them before. How about goat cheese, walnut and lemon zest? Yes, SAVOURY madeleines, as well as deliciously sweet. Perfect as a gift, or how about a tea party, baby shower or pop up event.

Perhaps you’ve finally returned from your travels and realised London is no longer the place for you?! We work with a superstar bespoke company who will sort your move abroad from start to finish.

We look forward to hearing from you.

This September, HAYA, the neighbourhood Mediterranean restaurant taking influences from Tel Aviv will open its doors in the heart of Notting Hill. Inspired by founder Victoria Paltina’s visits to the Israeli city, HAYA is born of the lively, spirited culture she found there and will be open all day, with a focus on simple Mediterranean sharing plates and nutritious, seasonal ingredients.

HAYA will act as an all-day restaurant for the colourful West London neighbourhood, opening its doors early to welcome residents, and visitors alike. Daytimes at HAYA will take their cue from the informality of Mediterranean dining culture, while the menu is inspired by Head Chef Oren King’s Tel Aviv background. On weekends, HAYA will open for brunch with dishes including shakshuka, and fried polenta cakes topped with shaved parmesan and fried quail eggs.


Maya has a master’s degree in Product Design, from Sarajevo Academy of Art and Design. She subsequently studied stained glass techniques and before opening her own studio, worked at the studio of celebrated glass artist Danny Lane, helping to create a glass staircase in the Glass gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
With more than a decade of experience, working for a wide range of clients, Maya has the ability to deliver projects at the largest scale and with the greatest creativity.
She combines contemporary design ideas and the latest technology, with traditional stained glass techniques.
