Maybe you didn't know it, but you've seen some of Florence Broadhurst's designs. Fashion icons like Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney have used her patterns and prints in their work. Helen O'Neill gets down to the nitty gritty business of detailing the things you probably don't know in Florence Broadhurst: Her Secret & Extraordinary Lives ($17). Juxtaposed with the gorgeous wallpaper patterns Ms. Broadhurst is known for is the story of her life and her mysterious murder at age 78. It's a great read, and makes a wonderful display in your fashionably decorated home!
