The Home of.... Marianne and Kore Yoors... Photographed by Leslie Williamson

Marianne and Kore Yoors' eclectic New York apartment, photographed by Leslie Williamson 

This home encapsulates everything that I love and that I would one day want to achieve with my own home. The epitome of a bohemian artist pad (a successful artist obviously). wooden floor boards, treasures from all over the world, high ceilings with just as high paintings and plenty of beautiful colours and textiles.

The images are by the awesome photographer Leslie Williamson and are of Mother and Son, Marianne and Kore Yoor's New York apartment and are a small part of a selection of Leslies work showcased on the American craft council website here..

Of these photogrpahs leslie Says:

Marianne Yoors, weaver/ceramist: “Marianne and Kore Yoors’ home is one of those NYC
apartments that you just dream about, because it is so bohemian and unique. I originally 
connected with the two of them over a love of Jan Yoors’ tapestries and photography
 of gypsies. (Jan Yoors, Marianne’s husband and Kore’s father, died in 1977.) So my 
original intent was to focus on and support Jan’s artistic legacy. But I have come to 
love Kore’s paintings and Marianne’s ceramic work, which are layered all over the
 apartment, along with Jan’s life-size sculptures and huge tapestries.” — Leslie Williamson

On a separate note, I am sad to say that artist Gisele d'Ailly van Waterschoot van der Gracht has passed away at the very respectful age of 100. Such a shining light will be sadly missed :(
