I am currently reading these. What are you reading?? I would buy most of my books by word of mouth or recommendation so do feel free to share your current reads, below.
I thoroughly recommend reading Fifties House by Catriona Gray. It is a direct – portal into a really important period in interior design history that has been beautifully recorded via British House & Garden. It is visually inspiring… and is definitely one to add to your Christmas list!
Vogue Living Australia is also looking gorgeous this month too! There is a particularly good editorial, A midsummer’s DREAM showcasing the beautiful work of Lisa Cohen (Photography) and Vicki Valsamis (Styling) in the Vogue Entertaining and Travel section. There are recipes, pastel linen tones and edible blooms…. which will absolutely help you get your Christmas baking on.
Thought I would share a few snaps from Fifties House with you, I do love these gorgeous 1950’s UK House & Garden front magazine covers. Some of these issues could easily have been published in 2014; their designs are still amazingly relevant and absolutely fashionable by today’s standards. I credit the vastly talented editors, designers, stylists and photographers from that time, would you too agree? And lastly, can I just say that I love that wall – vignettes were well and truly alive in the 50’s, yay!
These wise words from the 50’s (pictured left) are also quite humorous! “Some” of this advice would totally be fashionable right now… If you try any of these at your home, you simply MUST share your pictures with us.
