Ahhh, what a retro, graphic, textured, natural and eco way to say hello to thursday. This weeks ‘blast from my past’ is one of my favorites ( I know, I say that every week, but seriously!) I was very involved in this piece from painting birdies on tables, suspending above staircases, painting every nook and cranny of brick walls (not an easy task!), creating ghost like apparitions on the stairs (yes thats me!) and noting that open space shelving in a kitchen is not always an easy area to work with…eek. BUT after all the pain that went into the shoot, years on I still think the outcome is gorgeous. Sally Conran brought an eco style to life through a seamlessly blended style of modern graphic posters, sixties furniture, Orla Kiely-esque nature and old school masters paintings. Plus independent designers du jour –from beautiful Catherine Kullberg laser cut lamps to gorgeous ginkgo leaf wallpaper. All this freshness with some tan, brown and yellow paint–who knew?
