Shelf Life

Jennifer Boles at the Peak of Chic recently posted about how fresh Albert Hadley's work is.  Even ten years after his apartment was published in Elle Decor it appears current.  Timeless.

As I have been having a fantasy love affair with "Trixie" - the Red/Black on Off-White has been on my desk for months - I have noticed Hadley's wallpapers popping up hear and there.

Here is Trixie in chic black and grey in Kate Rheinstein Brodsky's New York kitchen. 

Splatter in Eddie Ross's window at Bloomingdale's.

Reddish Rose in Elizabeth Mayhew's daughter's bedroom.

And local designer, Ann Egan's, kitchen in the December/January issue of Spaces.

Christopher Spitzmiller has a stylish lamp named "Hadley," and while I love it in this matte finish

I can't help wondering what it would like like with the "Miro" pattern applied tone-on-tone
