Her idea is to come up with five "things" you'd put in your shopping trolley if money were no object. And it can be anything! House, car, piece of art, etc as long as it has a modernist/retro/vintage vibe.
Hmmmm...just imagine the possibilities...
Anyway, here is my current list (I see it as a fluid thing, constantly changing as I discover more and more lovely, interesting, covetable stuff)
1. The Iwanoff House
here it is in all its concrete glory
designed by Iwan Iwanoff, for his family in 1966
I have written about my love for Iwanoff buildings on this blog before, here and here. This is one of my favourites, what an incredible home it would be to live in and call my own! Sigh. Just one little hitch though...it's not for sale! However, if money were no object I wouldn't let that stop me! I'd march up to that front door, make a wild and crazy offer and Voila! It would be mine!
More info and lovely interior pics here and ten more Iwanoff's to perve at here. Do have a look - they're awesome.
2. A vacation in Palm Springs (can't get more modernist than that!) I'd go in February so I could attend Modernism Week and stay here
Ace Hotel, Palm Springs
3. A Paul Davies painting (this one would be quite nice...)
a snowy Seidler House
4. A Wembley Ware dhufish vase
I have a few smaller pieces, but I have always, always wanted one of these!
5. A little vintage Australian-made caravan like this one:
1965 Globe Trotter (same vintage as me btw)
a cubby house for me to play in and it would make running away easy too!
O.K. that's my list and apart from the Iwanoff, not too pricey either (and even that when it sold last year, wasn't waay out of reach. If I won Lotto i.e.)
What I'd really like at the moment is someone to do all the prep work for our kitchen reno (we've decided to make do and mend) I have been patching and sanding all weekend and (to put it nicely) I'm over it!
