|Natural light pours through the Tord Boontje lightshade|
giving the space an ethereal feel. So pretty!
Kirsty made the bedspread from fabric sourced at
Fabric Fantasy (sadly now closed) and has added

|There's such a great story behind this cushion. Kirsty's grandad |
gave her an old copy of 'Motels, Hotels, Restaurants and Bars'
featuring modernist buildings in the USA.
Deciding she'd like to stay in one, Kirsty found The Parker Hotel
in Palm Springs in all its revamped glory. Complete with gift
shop selling these cushions!
If ever in Palm Springs, The Parker looks incredible.
And if not, just the website is worth a visit.
When Kirsty found the couch it was in a very neglected and
smelly state (petrol and wet dog apparently).
She painstakingly restored it and now it's worthy of it's cushion!
|Kirsty's moving to New York. |
Farewell and all the best Kirsty. And we'll be inviting ourselves
over to see what you do next! xx
