Florence Broadhurst

My dear friend Vanessa gave me a book about Florence Broadhurst for my birthday. I love her designs and now I am going to enjoy reading about her life, and mysterious death.
"florence broadhurst was a world-renowned wallpaper and textile designer. she combined hints of the orient with europe’s 1930s-style modernism. her patterns, with shiny surface and sophisticated, very vibrant motifs are extremely elegant. she fused english floral patterns with splashes and swirls, bamboo and willow, kangaroos and peacocks...
