At Home: A Studio Room in Rome, 1970s

Photobucket

This spacious room has big windows which are ideal for an artist. It has been simply yet imaginatively decorated.

Photobucket

Light and interchangeable pieces of furniture have been specially chosen so that the can be moved around easily, according to the needs of the moment. Even the cupboards, normally a fixture, have been fitted on coasters to enable them to be moved around and to vary the aspect of the room as the designer intended.

Photobucket

In front of the big window, two Artemide tables are placed for the work area. The Zanotta sag bags clustered in the middle of the room make a congenial choice of seating which can be moved at will. Near the door leading on to the terrace is the sleeping area which consists of a simple bed, small storage and shelving units and brightly-coloured laminated cupboards fitted on coasters. The metal 'Palm Tree' by Schifano, pictures by well-known modern artists, various posters and other objects combine, sometimes with unusual combinations (like the juxtaposition of Lenin and Superman) to create an unusual and highly personal arrangement.

Photobucket

A white plastic dummy sits astride the water-heater. Rope and wood sculpture is by Cintoli. The necessary electrical fitments, which are usually concealed, have been exploited as a decorative feature in this interior.

Joan Crawford at Soda Fountain with Editor Alice Thompson, 1939.

Just found out from the lovely Jennifer Brandt Taylor that this was taken at C.C. Brown's, a soda fountain in Hollywood, which was also a late-night favorite of Marilyn's - and where the hot fudge sundae was supposedly invented!

Sadly it was demolished about 10 yrs. ago - I will never get why things like this are allowed to happen!

It's so cold! Even though this really hasn't been a horrible winter compared to others, I definitely think I'm ready for it to be over. How are you feeling about it?

Biba Heaven

Photobucket


"On the bed the model is wearing an Edwardian type cotton nightie (£8.50). She uses Biba make-up. Barbara Hulanicki started doing make-up quite early on - she thought that a girl who wore Biba clothes should have a face to match, so she used to produce "looks" to match each season's new designs. But the new store will sell "every colour under the sun." Biba's make-up artist used yellow foundation and china doll No. 3 loose powder to make the model's face pale and she made her eyes dark and smudgy with blue No. 4 and black powder tints plus havana brown water colour (prices from 17p)."


Photo by Julian Allason and text by Brigid Keenan for The Sunday Times Weekly Review, September 9, 1973.

At Home: Small but Perfect in Madonna di Campiglio, 1970s

Photobucket
This small interior (53 sq. m./ 63 sq. yds) in Madonna di Campiglio seems much larger than it actually is. This may be because it is on split levels which break up the living space and give it a new dimension.

There is a communicating hatch between the small, practical kitchen and the dining area.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Some steps lead from the entrance to the living area, which is much larger than the other areas. Abundant light comes through the two sets of modern windows at either side of the fireplace area.

Photobucket
The beaded ceiling with exposed beams is an important feature which follows the slant of the roof. Its volume contributes to the strong feeling of warmth prevailing throughout this little house.

Photobucket

Photobucket
The polyurethane units which make up the corner sofa in the living room are covered in shaggy, synthetic 'monkey' fur and can be converted into two additional beds, bringing the total sleeping accommodation to seven.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Next to the day area and quite independent of it, is the night area with two rooms (the very small one contains only a bed) and the bathroom.

Photobucket
Apart from the master bedroom, there is enough space for three beds in the children's room. Two, aligning the wall, have large drawers underneath, while the third, at right angles to the other two, is slightly higher and rests on a lacquered white wood storage unit with drawers and shelves.
