Book of the Week: Lulu by Lulu De Kwiatkowski

I was reading the Design 100 list in this month's Metropolitan Home and when I came across #46, my heart skipped a beat! It's the new book Lulu by artist Lulu De Kwiatkowski. Described by Met Home as "enormously colorful and energetic, so totally larger than life, that we give it the joie de vivre award for sheer affirmative exuberance." Get a glimpse of her fantastic autobiograpical collages featured in this book...

A little about the author; Lulu is an acclaimed designer that is well known for her textile line, Lulu DK, in addition to being the purveyor of fine furniture, fabrics and wallpaper. She has a background in painting, textile design and the decorative arts. This book displays Lulu's autobiographical, handmade collages, which are a blend of her paintings, drawings, photography and writing. I can't wait to get my own!!!

  1. oh, her name is enough to make me love her, but her work is even better! i'm a sucker for birds, so the bird collage is my favorite. they're all so vibrant & full of life!

  2. This is definitely a great book! :) And thanks for your sweet comment, Jules. :)

  3. I have to say that the very first photos remind me of design school... did everyone have to paint those colour theory rings?

  4. Looks like a great book! Thanks for your comment on the Living post - sorry about your last day, but looks like you have many more opportunities ahead. Good luck with the design business, such a neat idea! Let us know how it goes.
