Well the weekend is upon us once again - and blessedly a couple of days away from the office and some time to relax and enjoy time with friends - and another Sunday morning at the flea market - and some time to peruse the sales at One Kings Lane - and a few moments to revel in the fantastic designs of the fantastic Joe Nye.
Now when I started working on the "Love Letters" series - my plan was not to include any specific designers. But HOW could I let the letter "n" pass by without highlighting Joe's beautiful work.
I love his great flair with colour.
And his pitch-perfect ability for mixing styles and patterns.

And a few more shots from "Flair."
A few images of Joe's home in Los Angeles - from House Beautiful.
And his wonderful work at the Kip's Bay Showhouse last year.

Something a little more rustic -
from the pages of House Beautiful.
From the same project -
"And the curtains are positively some of the most beautiful you've
ever seen," Nye says. "They're a parachute-weight taffeta, with
a luscious crunchy-soft look."
And. frankly, anyone who keeps a few pieces of tartanware displayed in
their home is clearly alright with me - lol !
If you haven't ordered Joe's book - it is just marvelous.
GREAT photography - and great entertaining advice.
Cheers - and best wishes for a great weekend,
