Today Kathy hits the half century mark. It got me thinking about the year she was born, 1961, and how so many of the design trends from 50 years ago are back in vogue today. One of my favorite films from that year is The Parent Trap (the original one with Hayley Mills — not the Li-Lo version from the late ’90s). The sets in the movie were very hip and I remember thinking how, if I were the twin living in London and saw that cool ranch house in California, that I wouldn’t want to switch back either (but the London pad wasn’t too shabby, either).
Happy Birthday, Kath! Wish I were there to celebrate properly with you!
