Ted Yarwood

Posted on Fri, 31 Aug 2007 by KiM

Let me introduce you to the outstanding photography of Ted Yarwood. Please have a look at his portfolio for more eye candy – there were so many amazing photos to choose from. I love the photos below because the lighting in each is just perfect, and he focuses on the most beautiful elements of each space. Oh – and I would give my right arm for those pink tufted leather chairs.

Windows and walls

Time for another trip to the retro vault. This time a look at wall coverings and window treatments. Images scanned from The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, Vol 17, Greystone Pres, 1971.

Atelier September

Posted on Thu, 30 Aug 2007 by midcenturyjo

I’m drawn to the Gustavian look. Love the Scandinavian take on distressed antiques, monotones, simple ceramics and hemp and linen fabrics. I’m particularly loving the grey on grey. Just a peep inside this beautiful Danish antique store, Atelier September.

Ruthie Sommers

Posted on Tue, 28 Aug 2007 by KiM

Somehow neither Jo nor I have posted about Ruthie Sommers. She is hugely popular in the design scene and as everyone knows, was on the cover of Domino’s first issue. She is a design goddess and her style rocks beyond words. She only has a few pics of interiors on her site but had many fab photos in her store’s (Chapman Radcliff Home) gallery. OH LA LA. I want it all.

Her husband, Ashley Hicks, an architect and designer of interiors, furnishings, and textiles (and son of late decorating icon David Hicks). It’s a dynasty in the making. Although not as flamboyant as her father-in-law the influence is definitely there. Check out her website for all its lovely bohemian eclectic but luxury lifestyle products. The Allegra Hicks lifestyle is easy, stylish, individual, fun and enduring.
