Vale Stuart Rattle

I was very sad to hear about the death of one of Australia's leading interior designers Stuart Rattle in a tragic fire. He was one of Melbourne's true gentlemen, and my favourite interviewee of all time.

Stuart, you will be greatly missed.

  1. Farm life for successful business people?

    Oddly, it's my specialty.

    Didn't seek it.

    Was hired for acreage.....the rest is history.

    Has a name arrived for that choice of lifestyle/living? Urbals is quite good too.

    Have you read Founding Gardeners? About Washington, Adams, Jefferson and their agricultural and pleasure garden pursuits.

  2. Such sad news - I hadn't heard over here in Adelaide. He was a very talented designer, and it's a great loss to all, especially his family and friends and so close to Christmas.
    Candles.... often the culprit in a house fire. I'm guilty of having accidentally left mine burning at night after going to bed, which gives me horrors the next morning when I discover it. xx

  3. This news is indeed sad - made even more so by the latest news in the papers.
    Stuart Rattle was something of a interior design hero of mine.
    Bye for now,
    I am enjoying reading your blog!


Thank you for stopping by. It's always lovely hearing from The Library's readers.
