    Earlier this week , we brought you news of Alice Temperley's new Mayfair home, complete with six-foot bronze palm trees and a secret-access VIP salon, which we're 99% certain is where Duchess Kate will head to pick up some royal maternity gear.

    Here's what Alice had to say, when we checked in with her about the exciting expansion of the Temperley brand: “I wanted to create an effortless and timeless environment with a touch of decadence to complement my collections, in the heart of the city. The store is truly British, with a sumptuous French Salon feel that I hope is inspirational but accessible. This is a real milestone moment for the Temperley brand and I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved.”

    We're thrilled that we can now share photos of the fabulously decadent interiors in question — all brimming with antiques picked out by Alice herself. The resulting space boasts more fairy lights and gold than we've had hot dinners. And we like it.

    Click through for all the pics, and we guarantee you'll get into the festive spirit!
