I stumbled across this image again recently but, I never seem to tire of it.
Take a close look.
A beautiful collection of textiles and wonderful antiques. A prime example of classic "country design." An expansive space, but full of intimate emotions. If by chance you're unfamiliar with the image, take another look.
It is the work of visionary California designer Frances Elkins.
And was designed in 1918. Seriously.
I recommend that you all read this amazing book. It's a retrospective of her spectacular work. But, be prepared to be impressed. It always reminds me of the important power of design.
