Alan Campbell

Alan Campbell makes these charming faux naive prints, which I've always liked and enjoyed. Parish Hadley discovered Alan, and launched his career. My friend Louise in Atlanta, a designer, and her mother Susan, along with Dottie Travis, also a talented decorator were also instrumental in helping Alan along with his brilliant career. Sister Parish loved using these on her fine french furniture back in the seventies, and I recently saw some of his pillows at the Lars Bolander shop in West Palm Beach.

On another note, I adore this room from John Tacketts blog, The Devoted Classicist, from an old house in Palm Beach called Montsorrel...this room has marble walls! Stephane Boudin and Bunny Williams have done work on the house. All very intriguing. Enjoy the day! DF *****
