the last few weeks i’ve done several posts on carolyne roehm. i’ve always been a little obsessed with her, with her beauty, her style (she was a fashion fixture in the 80’s and 90’s), her homes and of course because of our mutual passion for blue and white.
from the looks of things it looks like i’m not the only one obsessed with her, whether good or bad, the posts i did on her recently have gotten so many comments….there is something about her that people really respond too- personally, i still think it’s because of her love of blue and white.
i featured carolyne’s bird room in her new charleston home last week. someone commented that there were more pictures of the bird room on carolyne’s blog- of course i checked it out, however, what i found more interesting was what inspired the bird room- claydon house.
i had always seen pictures of claydon house- those rocco and chinois rooms are unforgettable, absolutely breathtaking. john fowler most recently touched the rooms in 1970, he introduced the peacock colored paint. claydon house is in buckinghamshire and dates back to 1757.
enjoy a peek into the inspiration of carolyne’s charleston bird room, yet another reason i’m just a tad bit obsessed with her!
