‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’ exhibition by Tim Walker
Mimi Blogger Team went to the opening of the exhibition ‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’ by photographer Tim Walker and setdresser Shona Heath, who also designed the exhibition, at the Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch. This was at the beginning of November. Due to busy work days we weren’t able to post earlier on this must-see expo. We think Mimi Berlin’s Blog is not your only way of getting to know what’s going on, so you probably know all about this show: we won’t elaborate more on how wonderful we thought it was.

sets by Shona Heath were also on show.

PREGNANT, HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN?! Amazing! That’s the best cliffhanger for a tv (reality) series we have EVER seen! Now we certainly have to wait for season 3000 of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ and watch them all become grandmothers!

Textiles heir Stephen Courtauld and his wife Virginia bought Eltham palace, in the south east of London, as their main residence in 1936. The Courtaulds lived there from 1936 until 1944. Before the couple moved into the palace it was transformed (and revamped) into a 1930s design dream in combination with the remains of a royal, medieval palace. The Courtalds hired the architects Seely and Paget for this job. We guess you have to see it in real life to appreciate this palace….Anyways it’s decadence galore!
The Courtalds portrait painted by Leonard Campbell Taylor in 1934
Virginia Courtauld’s bathroom, one of many original interiors to survive from the 1930s. The walls are lined with onyx, with gold mosaic tiles in the bath niche.

Royal heritage: The Great Hall of the palace was refurbished in the 1930s, saving what had been the childhood home of Henry VIII

A couple of years ago we found clips of Royce on You Tube. We, at Mimi Berlin, posted a few and here is one more: Quando, Quando, also featuring Marilyn.
Royce Reed and Marilyn Hoggatt; “two of the most unusual ladies ever to grace downtown L.A.”
The makers of these clips are Bill Geerhart and Andrew D’Ambrosio. They filmed the ladies from the 1990s until 2010 at the Hotel Stillwell in downtown Los Angeles and later residences. They planned to make a documentary from this material. Bill Geerhart and Andrew D’Ambrosio’s campagin on indiegogo is closed. But the full-lnght documentary is nowhere to be found…. Maybe you know if they ever finished it or otherwise where to find it? If you do know more please let us know!
Thanks! xoxo Mimi
