A spiraling Serge Roche-esque column pairs with chalky Regence inspired console. Dense mocha walls offset intensely colored oil paintings. Unmatched chairs become sculpture (swipe.) All spells style with a capital S in Brooke Metcalfe’s South Oxfordshire house in this month’s AD. Then a grace note—a tripping line of buds by Flowerbx on a dining table (please establish a foothold here!)—and a realization: synchronicity of ideas that align with their time. Or, perhaps, a Cathy Graham moment. Swipe to see Cathy’s singing floral tablescapes. And see more of her flowers, tables, paintings, and artistry in her book Second Bloom. Great ideas know no bounds.
The incredible 1951 "LeSabre" GM design car created by the legendary GM design chief Harley Earl. This and the "Y-Job" are currently on display at the Blackhawk Museum in Danville, CA, for a limited time as part of a display curated to show the public some of the cars featured in Donald Osborne's fabulous book "Transatlantic Style". This is a rare chance to see these significant cars in person! #lesabre#harleyearl#transatlanticstyle#blackhawkmuseum#designcar#conceptcar#classiccar#vintagecar 🏁
Was thrilled to have Donald Osborne sign my copy of his book 'Transatlantic Style' during the opening of the exhibition today at @blackhawkmuseum .
