Friday's Fabulous Woman: Marion Hall Best

Marion Hall Best was one of Australia's first interior designers in the current sense of the word and was a founding member of the Australian Society of Interior Designers.   She was my heart because of her  bold love of color and graphic design.  Renowned for introducing Marimekko to the country, there is a fabulous feature in the latest Vogue Living by Sibella Court that was inspired by her.

Referred to as a "modernist designer, entrepreneur and artists’ friend" in this article,  she had a workshop and retail business until the mid-seventies.  More here.
