The dreamy interior of @theraleighhotel Miami Beach. Out of all the interiors I accessed it was one of the best that had preserved its original fittings and features. I love that fabric curtain wall πŸ’΅πŸŠπŸ’›

It's the last day to see This House for Building @thetetley @t_barandkitchen - work from my residency in their studio earlier this year. It's also the last day of their #TetleyWeekender of performance art,  music, food and drink.

This House for Building explored the architectural history of The Tetley, and the wider period of art and design during the buildings construction in 1931, focusing particularly on printed textiles and wallpaper. 
Pictured: Almost.... A hundred more years of progress, 2017, screen print digitally printed on silk, 60cm x 60cm, Edition of 25.

Great to revisit Stonehaven Open Air Pool today, built in the 1930s, one of the two remaining outdoor heated saltwater pools in Scotland. A refreshing swim in 14Β° weather πŸ’¦πŸ‘

This was my favourite residential property, four streets back from the beach in Miami South Beach. The pink coral rock is stained, which I saw a few examples of, mainly on hotels. The 'eyebrows' painted green, are designed to shade the small windows, to keep out the heat and sun. A feature we could do with today, its schorchio! Yesterday was hotter than Miami, hard to believe! πŸŒ•πŸ”₯ -

The Greystone Hotel is currently closed on Miami South Beach for refurbishment, but I managed to view an original postcard of the hotel during one of my visits to the Wolfsonian Museum archive. -

It was wonderful to meet the design historian and author Lesley Jackson this morning in Hebden Bridge. Lesley wrote the fascinating and dense book, Alastair Morton and Edinburgh Weavers - Visionary Textiles and Modern Art (published by V&A) amongst thirteen other books on 20th century textiles, furniture and design. It was so interesting to talk to Lesley about her research and her views on the fluidity between art and design during the 1930s and after. Pictured is Ashley's Abstract by Ashley Havinden, 1937, screen printed glazed cotton.

Another amazing afternoon looking at examples of curtains, samples and chair covers by Marion Dorn and Eileen Hunter. Unfortunately I am not permitted to share any of my photographs!

Had a really interesting morning @vamuseum in the archive looking at photographic documentation of interior furnishings by Eileen Hunter from 1930s. The curators have been so helpful.
