A great Interior book. Lili Diallo

We had the great pleasure of having Lili Diallo come to our home to style it for the Living etc shoot back in December. 

She made us all feel very relaxed and fun to work with.

She is a New York props stylist who used to work at the much missed Domino magazine and now she has a book out.

Details , A Stylist's Secrets to Creating Inspired Interiors.

The Royal Wedding!

Getting very excited about The Big Day on Friday.

Being British and living in New York means that if I want to see the events I have to be up at 4am. !!!!
Going to be watching with my girlfriend Deborah another Royal fan.
 It seems we are the only ones.
Will probably Skype Charlotte also in England.

                                                          So lets get the Bunting out!!

The term Bunting came from a type of fabric from the turn of the 17 th Century used to make flags for the Royal Navy.

Today it’s a term for any festive decoration consisiting of colourful triangular  flags.

The Fabulous Tim Walker

I had the great privilege of working with the Vogue photographer Tim Walker pre marriage and children when I had a career doing shoot production.
His pictures always make me smile and just dream about living in Tim Walker Land.

This is one of the prints he gave me from the shoot we worked on.
It was great fun working with never knew which unusual prop or set he was going to need next. So creative.

These are just a few of my favourites.

 I had to show the Pastel cats shot!!

Sadly I missed his first major show at the Design Museum in London in 2008 when the publication of his first book 'Pictures' came out. PS. It's on my wish list!!!

Beautiful creatures.

I met the very talented Tamar Morgendorf at a Bubble Trade show in New York a few years ago.
She later moved into the Brownstone we had rented for 5 years and made the children's bedroom into her studio for her much needed growing business.
Everything is handmade using vintage fabrics.
We love to pop in on the way home from school and see this magical place of creatures hanging everywhere.
