Waiting for Lulu

While we are waiting for the release of Lulu, the first book from textile designer Lulu de Kwiatkowski, here's a little preview. Remember, the focus of the book will be not interiors, but de Kwiatkowski's surreal handmade collages inspired by her 1970s childhood and her worldly travels. (Lulu's background is in fine art.)

When it finally does hit shelves -- hopefully in September not November -- the large-format volume should be lush since art house publisher Ammo Books is behind it.





I love how Anne Coyle used Lulu DK fabrics ("Porcupine" and "Chant") to bring a fresh edge to a trad Chicago family home, above; photos by Bob Hiemstra for O at Home, spring 2005.

Thanks for the heads-up on this book's release, Courtney. I have admired Lulu's work since I first came across her apartment in an issue of Elle Decor 7 0r 8 years ago. I will definitely keep an eye out for this book!
