The Taft Hotel
The Taft Hotel is a WordPress blog I set up in 2013 to reflect my growing interest in mid-century design, ephemera and movies.
I was inspired by rediscovering many of the picture books I had enjoyed as a child, including Miffy, Topsy and Tim, and Gwyneth Mamlok’s Candy series from the mid-1960s.
The Taft Hotel is named after the venue for Benjamin’s assignations with Mrs Robinson, in Mike Nichols’s The Graduate, which is my all-time favourite movie.
The Taft Hotel was closed for a while, but it reopened in 2017 and my New Year’s resolution is to post there more often.
Thanks for reading!
