Shelley Klein tells the story of her designer father’s life through the rooms in his beloved High Sunderland, the house created for the family by Peter Womersley. A stunning modernist building incorporating huge glazed walls & open plan living (hence the nomenclature of the title), which very much divided the Border residents when built in the late 50s.
Bernat Klein’s fabrics were bright and colourful, perfect for the swinging sixties and were used in many haute couture collections from Chanel to Dior and Balenciaga. All were inspired by nature and the colours of the border land surrounding his home.
