The Color of Ink -New Decor Trend

A new decor trend that has an enduring classicism – black and the deepest of charcoal greys, we might even count the inky blues in this category. Whatever the hue, dark moody colors decorate walls, fireplaces and even furnishings. You can select one area in your living room to create depth and elegance, and a bold swash of serious grown up beauty or you can go full in with a nigh sky wall…Enjoy our gallery of exceptional decorating ideas using these deep shades…

This room makes me so happy, the herringbone wood floors, amazing lacquer like black details, and white woodwork. A traditional space that becomes contemporary and yet maintains a profound respect for the beauty of traditional handicraft and home building. Stunning use of black…

Citrus + Warm Brights -5 Tips for Revitalizing Decor

A certain way to add life to your space is by adding depth of color. Paint an accent wall or woodwork, table or chair brights. Add a refined sofa in bright blue, yellow, or orange.

Beautiful brights like orange and yellows with white walls and eclectic accent pieces… I have a special affinity for orange, although I know it can go terribly wrong in decor …too much can leave one feeling a little overwhelmed, and orange has an awful habit of just not looking the same out of its paint can.

 

1.Velvety Brights

My love of orange clearly comes from my grandparent’s house where they had a lovely orange couch covered in itchy wool. There was lots of relentless complaining about its texture but I spent hours sitting next to my grandparents on this couch, as they talked with their friends, often falling asleep in my grandmother’s lap as she argued with someone about the merits of Dylan Thomas. Whatever it is you want to debate it can be accomplished in comfort in an overstuffed updated model of the orange couch –cozy comfort courtesy of Loaf. Or add bright pillows from Ragged Rose (pictured above).

3. Embrace the 1970’s Look

This is such 1970’s perfection, so much great orange and those omnipresent non exotic house plants that just filled everyone’s homes in that era. And yet, there is exquisite balance in this vignette. I love the patterns of Orly Kiely but find too much of a good thing can be overwhelming.  The textile designer shows us how to get it just right in this picture of her home -so cozy yet with lots of retro fun!

Decorating Ideas -Swans

 

MyLove Affair with Swans

I never really thought about swans -as a decorative element, or a favorite animal until my daughter requested a stuffed swan for her birthday -and I was astounded by how hard it was to find a nicely made one -I had to order one from Germany. I realized in fact they were the perfect bird for the animal crazy primary schooler -and they can add a touch of sophistication and the vintage as well. I hope you will be absolutely inspired by this collection of beautiful artistic designs, antiques, and eclectic swan decor items.

edgy sexy decor: katja’s house

meme design

recently i got to do a really amazing project for a spiritual healer, katja. she has such amazing light, passion and energy but loves mostly black and white for decor. her huge garden provides most of her food, and flowers from this glorious backyard fill the house

Photo by Dmitry Nevlad.jpg

 

ever the sexy archetype, she loves wolves, like i do. i recently helped her rethink her home and this blog is a kind of mood board for her aesthetic and vision….

our discussion began with the idea of spirit animals, and the bad reputation of wolves, and how there is a lot of manga style silliness out there, and paint by numbers looking nonsense pictures of wolves, and very little that really honors the fierce, wild and independent spirit of these animals.

but every once in a while you come across an artist whose depiction of the idea of wildness, of the spirit of the wolf is superbly powerful, sensitive and evocative, like that of the talented photographer katerina plotnikova, her portfolio is so beautiful it can be almost overwhelming, such a rich saturated gothic appeal.
