ALIDAD IN LONDON


I published this post in 2010, but have had so many comments and questions about who Alidad is, I thought I would repost.  The first image below, posted yesterday, was loved by many and led to this.



I really am not that familiar with Alidad, but I have an enormous weakness for anything British.  Just look at these wonderful rooms designed by this designer.  Some of the rooms remind me of the work of Miles Redd, and since I haven't seen any new Redd rooms lately, I went searching for rich color!  ENJOY!










See you soon,
Teresa

For those of you that love New York, this is the book for you.  It is also a book for those loving design.  Few books have shown me this much beauty!

Buildings created by the best architects and interiors created by the most talented and sought after designers such as Henri Samuel, Robert Corturier, Piet Boon, Michael S. Smith, Natalie and Virginia Droulers, George Yabu and Glen Pushelberg, William Sofield, Thomas Jayne, Charles Pavarini, Joe Nahem,  Bunny Williams, Cullman and Kravis, Delphine Krakoff, Katie Ridder, and Tom Scheerer and others makes for a stunning book.  I would consider this a go-to guide for those wanting to make their world more beautiful. Absolutely stunning. 

Judge for yourself from the few images I have shared below.  ENJOY!
