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 💵🏊💛
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.

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.
