Were it not for my Mother..... I would not have such strong interest in design. In my opinion... my mother has impeccable taste and an extraordinary eye for aesthetics. In a way she has been a guiding force in the worlds of fashion and interior design. In the 1970s and 80s she worked in fashion design... and I've heard from a number of reliable sources that she is the original designer of the "sleeping bag coat" ... (the long down-filled puffy coat)... and as one of the owners of the shop Ruby Beets, she has helped in shaping the aesthetics of interior design over the last 20 years. It's amazing to think back on her wardrobe and homes over the span of my life. She always manages to be totally current and yet totally timeless. She has managed to avoid following short lived trends, and has herself instigated important and lasting trends.
I suppose I am biased .... since she is my mom.... but it is her unwavering eye that gives me faith and confidence in my own design practice.
Her name is Honey Wolters..... and here are some amazing images of her from the past few decades.[gallery link="file" columns="4" orderby="ID"]
