House & Garden – June 1970 by Olivia Hantken

I picked up this treasure whilst shopping with my mum in Brunswick many years ago. There was a big stack and I regret that we only bought two! They float between her bookcase and mine as we not only love the beautiful images, but enjoy the time warp we enter when reading them.

Whilst not strictly gardens, below is a series of images from this issue featuring alfresco living ideas and interior design.

House & GardenMy favourite is without a doubt the bean bag room. This was taken from the penthouse of french actor Francois Perrier (on Boulevard St Germain of course!). He was aided by interior decorator Francois Arnal, who also painted the black and white composition on the far wall.

Along with the Zanuda bean bag chairs, the feature cactus and amazing ash trays make me conjure images of some of the amazing parties Francois must have thrown.

Artist and ceramicist Kim Jaeger has been creating these super cute ‘potheads’ since 2011.

PotheadsHistoria Films (a collaboration between photographer Mike Smith and blogger Laura Quattrocelli) have made a little film about Jaeger’s work. You can also check out an interview with her on The Design Files.

My mother has a vase at home which reminds me of these potheads. It’s by Arab Australian artist Salwa El-Shaikh.

I love the plants (and clothes, and styling) in this lookbook for (now defunct) English brand Aubin & Wills’ spring 2012 collection. The photographs feature Blur’s bass guitarist Alex James and Romanian/ Canadian model Irina Lazereanu.

My best mate and a bunch of her friends live in a beautiful old terrace in Redfern. Their house has three meandering levels, and the garden is surrounded by leaf covered brick walls. They’ve only been there less than a year but already it feels so homely.
