Liberty on the tiles

1970s, bill gibb, Elle, interior design, interiors, James Mortimer, liberty, liberty's, Sarah Campbell, Susan Collier, Vogue
The Countess Emma de Bendern’s dining-room and kitchen, left: Terrace wall and floor tiles to match cotton union curtains, green as green. Paint, Carson’s Grassy green no 7Q. Emma’s dress, a Liberty print Bill Gibb, to order from Elle, her hair cut by Karin of Derek Roe.

Liberty has covered another few indoor acres with flowers and trellis and the acres are acres of tiles made by Fired Earth. Refreshingly pretty as might be expected, with fabrics to match exactly or very nearly. The _project was initiated by the late Blair Pride, co-ordinated by Susan Collier, Liberty’s design consultant, who with Sarah Campbell produced the designs. Here they are in situ.

All tiles in Liberty pattern by Fired Earth, 6 or 8 ins square, from £16.50 a sq metre four days delivery, from 102 Portland Rd, W.11. Fabrics from £2.45 a yd, 48 in wide, at Liberty.

In a Cellophane Sheen

1970s, barry lategan, Hair and make-up, Inspirational Images, Make-up, Ugo Correani, Vogue

If you’ve never seen yourself like this, see yourself now… in a cellophane sheen, warmer, milkier, and pearlier than plain gloss. For the softest effect of all, here, a judicious use of rosy mauves and mother of pearl behind a shadow of pale veiling. The make-up is Gala’s: Barely There foundation in Honey, dusted with Translucent Light Powder. Pink Dazzle Lipstick used to make rosy shadows above and around the eyes, the gloss dusted away with Marshmallow Eye Shadow, and on the eyes, above and below, Shiny Apricot Liqui Tint pearled with Barely Frosted Highlighter. Liqui Lash Brownish/Black Mascara, and Burning Shimmer Super-smooth Lipstick. Imagine Gala’s Affair Perfume Oil Concentrate in the air. The head is wrapped in amethyst with pink veiling and pinned with pearly mauve flowers made in Italy by Ugo Correani.
