I've been scanning a pile of papers I ripped from magazines years ago and I found this rather gorgeous apartment from Elle Decoration from some time in the early 2000s. The London flat of Shaun Clarkson, a nightclub designer, and his partner, Paul Brewster, a fashion forecaster, is a symphony of purples with splashes of oranges and reds.

Illustrations by Matthew Gouig from Robert Anton Wilson's Right Where You Are Sitting Now, 1982.

While staying at my parent's friend's farm in Massachusetts last week, I was wandering around their large library when I came across this book. Immediately drawn to the psychedelic futurism of the cover, I borrowed it and when reading it realised that it was full of the most remarkable illustrations.

Serve 'Em Hot


Photobucket

Scanned from Cosmopolitan, July 1978.

After a very odd week that started with my first earthquake and with my first hurricane raging outside right now, I am more than content to hole up in my apartment watching Dynasty all day- though I wish I had a heavily mustached man to make Mexican "tortilla pockets" with!

Her Name is Lio

Photobucket
Lio is a European pop sensation! She is pure candy... an irresistable confection! Almost too, too sweet. And if the chilly British libido doesn't warm to Lio tout de suite, then something's very wrong.

At Home: On the Yacht, 1972

Photobucket

"Building boats is building your own way of life afloat. Yachts have been thought of too strictly as just a means of transport, a kind of basic spartan object with no reference to style and true human dimensions. A boat should be practical and comfortable. Everything in design whether on a boat or dry land should help towards that feeling of security that one's living place should give. With most designing, there's a cross-fertilisation of ideas - techniques used in houses, hotels, company offices can be applied on boats although of course special finishes and building techniques have to be developed too." - Jon Bannenberg

Spending the weekend in New Hampshire at the 100th anniversary of the camp I went to for five years as a young girl- my first time back here since I was 13. Just as gorgeous as I remembered- and luckily this time I am not being forced to wear brown and white polyester seersucker!
