Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: An ode to the classic Spanish-style houses of Santa Barbara. " Spanish Colonial Style" celebrates an extraordinary tradition in architecture whose hallmarks include whitewashed stucco and plaster walls, wood-beamed ceilings, dramatic fireplaces, and, above all, mystery and romance. Homes in this much-loved style of architecture welcome the visitor and embrace the resident, and architects James Osborne Craig and Mary McLaughlin Craig, early proponents of the style and influential disseminators of it, were masters of the form. Their work, until now, has been largely underappreciated and little seen.The Craigs played pivotal roles in the development of the Spanish Colonial Revival and of other styles of architecture in Santa Barbara, and the influence of their work spread much beyond that. In addition to shining a long overdue spotlight on the rich career of these tremendously influential architects, "Spanish Colonial Style" also heralds Santa Barbara as the small city of international importance that it became in the first half of the twentieth century."

Drawing inspiration from the natural world, as well as British folklore, Finch mingles fairytales and reality to create a magical world all his own.

Many of these pieces were born of treasures lost and forgotten: velvet curtains from an old hotel, a threadbare wedding dress and a vintage apron become birds and beasts, looking for new owners and adventures.
