Blog Buzz: Anne Harwell and Nancy Drew
Above, mirror images: Anne Harwell's delicate rendering of a Louis XV bergere, top, and what appears to be her inspiration, below, an orange-upholstered chair from Pieces, which is now sold.
Have you seen Anne Harwell's lovely work featured recently on design blogs including: Absolutely Beautiful Things, decor8, Unruly Things, and Design News Blog? Her portraits of rooms and chairs seem to follow in the tradition of Mark Hampton (see Bibliostyle for more on Hampton's work) but she has her own fresh vibe.
Harwell's room paintings also remind me of renderings that decorator Charlotte Moss collects and groups on walls in her homes. (Visit New York Social Diary to see her NYC residence.) Since Harwell accepts commissions, I'm already tempted to have her paint my "Imperial Trellis" chair--if I ever finish it.
Changing the subject to Billy Haines and Chinoiserie, Leah of More Ways to Waste Time wrote a great post today on the sets in the new Nancy Drew movie. Check it out.
