I felt very privileged to be invited to an installation of festive photography by Barbara Chandler last week at the Kings Road branch of Habitat.
Barbara (for anyone who isn’t familiar with her work) is the author of Love London, which was published last year and contains 180 photographs of the capital, and her photographic work has featured in a series of London exhibitions. She has also worked extensively as a journalist, writing mainly about interiors and design for many national newspapers and magazines including the London Evening Standard (for over 20 years), and more recently Homes and Gardens.
Last weeks exhibition also marked the launch of her ‘stars’ collection for Habitat which features her photographs digitally printed on cushions, aprons, tea towels and tote bags. The tea towels are shown here.
I haven’t known Barbara for very long but in that short time she has shown tremendous support for us humble bloggers and I’m proud to be able to call her a friend. She also (and I don’t think she’ll mind me saying this) looked stunning in one of her own ‘stars’ aprons and black high heels. Such amazing legs!
