The Two Icons

That was the subject line in the email I received with this picture of me and my BFF Bev at my pre-birthday celebration on Sunday, October 28.

The Two Icons
Bev is a Graphic Designer and is one of the most talented and creative people I know.  She gave me this beautiful book, The Iconic Interior, by Dominic Bradbury, which will be a magnificent resource for me.  Bev and I both agree that we are, in fact, "The Two Icons."  The two icons of design that the world is just getting to know.

A closer view of the cover of the book.  A little information on the author:

Dominic Bradbury is an interior design writer who contributes to numerous publications, including House & Garden, the Daily Telegraph, the Sunday Times (London), and Wallpaper. He lives in Norfolk, England.

The Iconic Interior features 100 of the most important and influential interiors from around the world. Designed by a broad spectrum of fashion designers, artists and architects, set designers and decorators, these private spaces represent a wide range of styles, periods, and aesthetics. Here are such unforgettable spaces as Billy Baldwin’s design for Diana Vreeland’s New York City home; Edith Wharton’s famous New England house, The Mount; Coco Chanel’s legendary Paris apartment; Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House; Tony Duquette’s California estate, Dawnridge; and Piero Fornasetti’s Villa Fornasetti. Organized chronologically, many of the interiors have been photographed specially for this book. Along with the lush photographs, each description is accompanied by a short biography of the owner/designer. The Iconic Interior is a complete guide to 100 years of influential, gorgeous design.
