Recent Post -  Patmos Garden From the Archives Desert Island Discs

It was a pleasure to receive an email from a friend who photographed the San Francisco room she was staying in [above].  I had quite forgotten the two coordinated fabrics - one for the walls, the other for curtains with an 18th Century Blackamoor as a motif [I asked the talented artist Konstantin Kakanias to design these fabrics for the room.  he is the author of  the hilarious cartoon book 'Mrs. Tependris: the Contemporary Years' , which was commissioned by the Greek Ministry of Culture to create a book for the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens ].

Note the red and white striped fitted carpet we had made - a foil to the grenadine background of the fabrics.  The house contains outstanding antiques bought by a great collector with encyclopaedic knowledge and outstanding flair.
Ann Getty 'Interior Style'  is available to order now.
