I wanted to share just one last picture from my visit to @annabelsmayfair
in London last week.
This sumptous yet ethereal room called to mind stories I have heard of Syrie Maugham - the celebrated British decorator of the 20s and 30s (married to Somerset Maugham) who made her early mark with glamorous rooms decorated entirely in white, and accessorized with luxurious use of mirrors and mirror panelling. Her schemes are said to have inspired some of the lavish sets of Hollywood movies of the time, and they must have seemed supremely modern following the remnants of heavy Victoriana.
Like all the rooms at #annabels
this space is newly created by @Martinbrudnizki
. I wonder if it was an homage to Maugham's talent and the glamour she created for the beau monde of her era. You can see the same Silver Room in another elegant configuration on Mr Brudnizki's own account.
