Born Audrey James, she was a renowned beauty and prominent member of transatlantic society in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Romantically linked to the future Edward VIII and engaged to Lord Louis Mountbatten, she was married three times, firstly to Captain Muir Dudley Coats (d. 1927) between 1922-1927, then to Marshall Field III, the Chicago department store heir, from 1930-1934 and finally to the Hon. Peter Pleydell-Bouverie, from 1938-1946. The ‘Vogue Regency’ interiors that she created just before the Second World War with Stéphane Boudin of Maison Jansen at The Holme, Regent’s Park, in a delicate palette of white, cream, gold, grey and pink, were designed to harmonise with her Impressionist art collection. During The Second World War her collection was moved to Julians Park, where again she worked with Boudin to adapt the Georgian interiors to suit her paintings and furniture, to great effect. The interiors at both the Holme and Julians were published in Country Life, in 1939-40 and 1947, and these, along with the photograph albums and scrapbooks she created, tell the story of a life lived in the glittering artistic, aristocratic and royal circles of society in England, America and on the continent.
