Hello! Meet Mimi Berlin Senior and Senior. Obviously they are twins. They aren’t amongst the living anymore. But they still are in our thoughts and inspire us everyday to create, decorate and collect everything. #collectingeverything
We love that they wear the same outfit! And look at those pied de coq checkered tops splatting from your screen. We can’t keep the apart! (not true)
Have a nice day xoxo Mimi
Danke Schön Aunties P & M for this wonderful image!
Mimi Berlin’s Vinyl Library: Whipped Cream and Other Delights
Look what we found: not in the atiic but on our Photobucket library (which we forgot about to be honest). Images we took of some of our favorite record sleeves: front ànd back, (that must have been a stress-releasing action; we can’t remember) Anyway, the cover below is one of the true gems, in our opinion. Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Bross; Whipped Cream and Other Delights is, for the title only but also for the girl in a bridal dress made out of whipped cream (imagine the fun ‘they’ must have had creating that image!)
Textiles heir Stephen Courtauld and his wife Virginia bought Eltham palace, in the south east of London, as their main residence in 1936. The Courtaulds lived there from 1936 until 1944. Before the couple moved into the palace it was transformed (and revamped) into a 1930s design dream in combination with the remains of a royal, medieval palace. The Courtalds hired the architects Seely and Paget for this job. We guess you have to see it in real life to appreciate this palace….Anyways it’s decadence galore!
The Courtalds portrait painted by Leonard Campbell Taylor in 1934
Virginia Courtauld’s bathroom, one of many original interiors to survive from the 1930s. The walls are lined with onyx, with gold mosaic tiles in the bath niche.
The interior of the entrance hall, created by the Swedish designer Rolf Engströmer
Royal heritage: The Great Hall of the palace was refurbished in the 1930s, saving what had been the childhood home of Henry VIII
