Mid-Century Home Revealed on

Mid-Centry Modern

I was so inspired by our trip to Los Angeles this spring!  One of the highlights of our visit was an evening tour of The Stahl House.  Built in the 1950's, it became an iconic representation of modern architecture.  This particular home has been the setting of many films (Why Do Fools Fall in Love, Playing by Heart, the Marrying music videos and many print ads).  We were lucky enough to have our tour during sunset.  Watching the lights start twinkling on was magical.

My piece includes commercially printed cotton, hand-dyed and overprinted cotton, and strips of men's shirting fabric from the 1960's given to me by a high-end window dresser from Worth Ave, Palm Beach (my tip of the hat to Mad Men everywhere)
