Discovering Carolyn Quartermaine was like that for me. Her taste and aesthetics for beauty captured my imaginings. I purchased her one and only published work that I know of, it is called Carolyn Quartermaine Revealed. There is another title this book is published under, Carolyn Quartermaine Unwrapped. One version is from a British publisher, the other from an American one.
This book has been the one book I go to over and over again for inspiration. Her design style is refreshing and pure with an opulent flow of color and light. She is truly an artist’s artist.
Vogue Living Australia just recently featured her home in their beautiful magazine. (UPDATE: I had previously posted where I was able to locate a copy of this magazine. I have removed that information as it was a personal friend and not meant to be a source for others to order this issue from. Thanks so much for your understanding).

I also found this wonderful YouTube interview with her by Trendease.
A small update: A comment was left by a Trendease representative with a link to more Carolyn Quartermaine. It is a fantastic link. Please check it out here.
