Rove Concepts


Is it curtains for retro?

Never! Time for our weekly trip down design's memory lane. Drapes darlings, curtains my chickadees. More scanned images from from How to Make Your Windows Beautiful Vol V, Kirsch Company, Michigan, 1974. Perhaps a bit more "tasteful" than last week's? Hard to believe they come from the same book. Oh well I'm a sucker for the over the top awfulness of the era anyway. Note too the ubiquitous indoor plant and they're on their way back!

Long weekend reading

It's Australia Day here in, you guessed it, Australia. A time of the BBQ, lamb roasts, cricket, citizenship ceremonies and a long weekend. No WINKS today, no Jo's place post just a lovely long list of 3 day weekend reading. Some are new, some are old favourites, some aren't in English. All will keep you busy with lots of design lolly. Apologies to those that have to go to work on Monday. Think of me as I'm slaving over a roast leg of lamb for my dinner guests. YUM!

OMG I had to share!

I was just web surfing (as you do, thank you StumbleUpon) when I found these! Beautiful tailor's mannequins by Malinki. Fiona Lewis and Lucy Howard are the women responsible for these sublime dress forms. Not much information on the website, just these stunning images and some contact details and the fact that these are available at Tann Rokka which of itself looks amazing! Take the tours while you're there.
