min hogg 1938-2019

Min kept two special files in her office drawers, and during 19 years as founder and editor of Interiors had ample opportunity to fill both. ‘REALLY NICE LETTERS’ overflowed with appreciative correspondence from professional and amateur design devotees whose eyes had been opened by the magazine’s unique coverage of everything from taxidermy squirrels to minimalist apartments. ‘RIP-OFFS’ was even more crammed, this time with pages torn – crossly – from titles that had copied WoI’s stories and styling features. As a journalist determined to remain as interested in what she published as her readers, Min never understood why editors submitted to plagiarism: ‘Why can’t they get their own ideas?’ But fresh thinking came more easily to her than most. It’s what allowed her to create a magazine that changed the…

borders sans frontieres

AS WITH so many great ideas, the inspiration behind Rebecca Cole’s latest collection was incidental and unexpected. It started with a hat. About nine years ago the textile designer had taken a step back from fabrics and was living in rural France with her two small children, concentrating on painting while her husband jetted between their half-built house and his native Nigeria. ‘We lived a sort of idyll,’ she says, ‘DIY, painting and childcare all rolled into one.’ But then she began to reflect. ‘I thought: I trained in textiles and yet I’m not doing anything in textiles.’ It was around this time, while talking to her father-in-law on one occasion, that she noticed his hat.

When the venerable French candlemaker Cire Trudon was looking for somewhere to shoot its first-ever campaign recently it knew just where to look. About 800km southwest of Paris, in a commune close to the border with Andorra, lies the historic 94-room Château de Gudanes, a romantic relic whose Australian owner, Karina Waters, likes to do things the old-fashioned way – not least lighting. With only a rudimentary electricity supply in a handful of rooms, she and her husband, Craig, are almost wholly reliant on tapers to find their way around after dusk. It is then that the atmosphere in their historic home becomes truly magical, with scores of flames gently flickering and shadows dancing like phantoms across the boiserie panelling. Here, then, was the perfect setting for Cire Trudon’s fabulous new…
