The Radziwill Bedroom
Pressed for time, I think over the next few days I'll simply share some iconic rooms as captured by Mark Hampton. (Anne Harwell is a great fan of Hampton's interior watercolors and has already written some lovely blog posts about the man.) Above is Lee Radziwill's bedroom in England decorated by pattern maestro Renzo Mongiardino.
In a May 2004 article penned for Veranda, design journalist Marion McEvoy listed Renzo Mongiardino among her six all-time favorite talents. She described Mongiardino as "the world’s number one over-the-top decorator," and added, "He’s responsible for demonstrating that 'less is more' is no fun at all."
domino introduced a younger, wider audience to the Mongiardino-Radziwill projects of the swinging 60's. Above more pattern and more layers in her London drawing room.
