Ashcombe: The Story of a Fifteen-Year Lease

This morning I received an email about Cecil Beaton's 1949 Ashcombe: the Story of a Fifteen-Year Lease. If you are searching for a paperback copy or hardcover first edition, Abe Books has both. Prices range from about $8 to $40. Amazonhas vintage copies too.

As The Peak of Chic mentioned the other day, Annie Kelly’s review for 1stdibs indicates that both of Ashcombe’s most famous occupants – Cecil Beaton and Madonna – will be featured in the upcoming Vogue Living: Houses, Gardens, People.

Wow, I just can't wait any longer, Courtney! Hurry up Amazon!

I think I need both books! I have to admit, though, that I'm more intrigued with the way Beaton designed his home rather than the current Madonna version!
