A Burst of summer

On my way to the Oscar de la Renta Home launch I walked through Berkeley Square  and got the full impact of Dale Chihuly’s fabulous 14ft glass installation, The Sun. Ten or more years ago I went to Seattle to interview Chihuly about his home and work and was accompanied by The Times Magazine Picture Editor Graham Wood who did the pictures. Graham got on like a house on fire with Chihuly and it was a very enjoyable shoot – so seeing the brilliant orange red and yellow sun brought back many memories.

Then there was the trip to The Bargehouse behind the Oxo Tower to see Habitat’s Autumn Winter preview. I had a guided tour with creative director Polly Dickins, who was on Woman’s House a few days later talking about Habitat’s 50th anniversary this year.

Also a shoot with James Balston at the new home of budding designer Amber Jeavons. We featured her studio flat in The Times Magazine about three years ago, but she has moved up a rung on the property ladder to a one bed flat taking with her all her style and wonderful ideas, so we were happy to catch up with Amber and to do a shoot that will hopefully appear in the magazine sometime soon.
