The 20’s are in the air

19 Sep

Yes, that’s the 1920’s. It must be serendipity as the current 1920’s obsession creeping into everything from fashion, film and interiors is right up my street. What with William Tempest’s design debut for River Island and a new film adaptation of The Great Gatsby coming out in December it seems Art Deco style is having a moment. Having just re-read some F Scott Fitzgerald and The Paris Wife by Paula McLain I’m looking forward to immersing myself a little more!

Nice,Hotel Negresco, 1912

The Hotel Negresco in Nice is 100 years old this year. This original advert from 1912 heralds the opening of this classic art deco gem. I’m sure the surrounding area is slightly more built up now!

Selling at St Gemma’s Vintage Fair, Leeds this weekend…

4 Sep

I’m currently preparing for the St Gemma’s Vintage Fair this weekend where I have a stall. Lots of framing and preparation going on here! I have bought some fab eau de nil coloured mounts and they are really enhancing the pictures.

The fair takes place on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September and is at St Gemma’s Hospice, Harrogate Road, Moortown, Leeds with lots of stalls full of gorgeous vintage goodies. Come down and say hello!
