Florence Broadhurst

A while ago I was zigzaging through the shops on Abbot Kinney and stumbled upon this great book on Florence Broadhurst, an Australian designer, performance artist and all around amazing woman who is best known for creating beautiful wallpaper from her own designs (see above). She also led a pretty eccentric and fabulous life in the early Twentieth Century and the book, Florence Broadhurst, Her Secret & Extraordinary Lives by Helen O’Neill goes into all kinds of details about her and the whirlwind adventures she created for herself. I love getting introduced to someone like this out of the blue. I am sure she is not news to interior design fans the world over but for me this was a fun find. The book also has a red floral fabric cover and is full of all kinds of inspirational stuff.
