“General Dynamics Undersea Frontiers” by Erik Nitsche 1960.

I am pleased to announce that we will participate in Coastal Living’s Showhouse on Coronado beach (off the Coast of San Diego). The Showhouse was designed by Burnham Designs an LA based design firm known for marrying classic with the unexpected. We met Betsy and Max at LA Modernism two years ago, and have enjoyed working with  them on various projects since then. Last year Betsy spoke on a design panel at Dwell on Design with Trina Turk. The house will open for tours  July 16th– September 30th, and will be featured in the October Issue of the magazine. 

 

“We really wanted to highlight artwork in this gem of a home, but it can be difficult to do on spec. Vintage European Posters is our ‘go-to’ for original vintage posters and it was easy to choose good things that show sail and sport from their website.”

-Designer Max Humphrey

Burnham Design and Elizabeth Norris  looked for posters with water, sport and travel themes for this loveley vacation home. Burnham ultimately chose 5 posters, including a beautiful and rare Air France Map, as well as the stylish General Dynamics poster featured above,  .

We encourage you to tour the house and enjoy the pleasures of island life, paired with good design, and great graphic design.
