The Skirted  Roundtable


We have a new Skirted Roundtable discussion up – with guest Annie Kelly.  Kelly who writes books with her husband, photographer Tim Street-Porter talks about their latest collaboration, Rooms To Inspire By the Sea.  This book is the latest in a series that includes Rooms To Inspire in the City, the Country, and just plain Rooms to Inspire.

For this newest book, they have picked a variety of houses near the ocean to show here – some fancy like Richard Shapiro’s gorgeous place in Malibu and some not so fancy like Chris Mead’s house in the Hamptons.  Other houses shown are Joe Francis’ in Mexico and India Hicks in the Bahamas. As always, the photography is stellar and the choice of houses shown is a most interesting mix.

The latest in the series.





I love the cover of this book and keep it out on my coffee table.



Love this fireplace – the color green mixed with blue and white.



And the original series of “Rooms to Inspire”

The couple also have two books on Mexican interior design and one on Litchfield style homes.  To order their books, Amazon has a special Annie Kelly Books page HERE.
