Show and tell — a couple of things: I am excited about the April 2019 issue of AD. Reason? Its story about the London pied-à-terre of Laura Sartori Rimini, one half of Studio Peregalli, the transcendent (yes - I lie not!) Milan decoration firm known world-wide for its delightfully rarefied but exuberant rooms, in which colour, texture, fantasy, vitality, historicism, maximalism and uniquely perfect taste are the key components. @miguelfloresvianna took the beautiful photographs. A couple of books on the Bloomsbury Group. Perhaps you didn’t know that many of its talented and outrageously high-minded members — Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Lytton Strachey, Leonard Woolf — had close and, in some cases, longstanding family ties to India and Ceylon, and in particular Calcutta (Kolkata). The Vogue is old but it may as well be new as some of the photography is so fresh. (This April 1966 green-dream cover was shot by Irving Penn.) As for the white muscari, don’t go nuts. You buy ‘em and you plunk ‘em, on any ol’ table. And, finally, regarding the watcher at bottom right, she told me the giant chrysanthemums remind her of that bewitching photograph of Yayoi Kusama, when a child.
