In light of what was and what is going to be – that is the 1920s era and the soon to be released, new edition of the Great Gatsby – art deco will be the interior inspiration for the purpose of this post…
From the flapper inspired Crawley dress sense in Downton Abbey to the plunging waistlines we see in the glimpse of the new film, The Great Gatsby to be released on the 17th of May – let’s take a look at art deco through the ages… It’s true, history does repeat itself.
To have and to hold onto…forever
I choose to define hoarding as: ‘an over-developed ability to store all things good and possibly useful’. This could mean useful for your unborn children, unbuilt house or perhaps useful during a sudden apocalypse. This could also include eggshell boxes as paint holders should you one day become a nursery school teacher and need them in abundance.
Bookshelves with books on ’em – oh, what a feat! I suppose it’s expected, nowadays, that on a bookshelf you’ll find some pots, some souvenirs and one kindle. Get a kindle, it’ll save the trees, they say…
I’ll have you know, and I’ve done the research – the trees books are made of are specially grown to become books when they grow up. So shall we give them the best, most beautiful way to live out the rest of their lives? We shall – especially for the purpose of this post.
As you may know, The Furnishing Touch is sponsored by The Bravo Group of companies, which is home to (among other great decor brands) Grafton Everest. Sometimes we get to visit the show rooms, touch the furniture and dream up completely new posts than what we may have had in mind when we went there in the first place. Last night I had a hot cup of joe while clicking through the Grafton Everest website and came by these gems.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, brass happens to be one of those timeless accents for any home. Maybe I’m biased, but everyone loves a good brass or gold piece, when it’s done well, hey? No thanks to those that have ruined the image of brass and gold in some of your eyes because of the truly sad way they’ve portrayed it.
Well, allow me to attempt to change that perception for those not so convinced and for everyone else – all that glitters is gold for the purpose of this, golden, inspirational post.
I have been trying to find a new and bigger place from what seems like the longest time. Bigger is quite relative in this instance because I currently live in a tiny studio flat so my imagination of “bigger” is anything from a bigger studio to a two bedroom. A few weeks ago I came quite close to getting a bigger studio but after viewing it, I realised it wasn’t worth the money. This disappointment aside, I’m still looking and keeping myself inspired.
Whose home is the most stylish of them all? Why, the most stylish people of course…
I thought we’d take a look at the ultimate influenced-by-fashion homes, those are the homes of the fashion influencers, get where I’m going? If they’re making it in fashion, they’re making it in interior design. We think so…
Here’s a look at some of the finest designers’ homes… From a 1988 edition of Yves Saint Lauren (now Saint Lauren) featured in Architectural Digest, to his excellency, Giorgio Armani.
Waking up feeling like you’ve been floating on a bed of clouds, then glancing out the window to see those clouds is the kind of experience you’ll have in some of the tallest hotels in the world.
Here are a few splendid hotel suites; that may inspire you to travel, oh-so comfortable, renowned for comfort, beds; that may inspire a bed revamp and amazing views, for the purpose of this inspiration post…
Since the cameras, lights and all the action started in New York and made it’s way back to finish in Paris tomorrow, I thought to add a second addition to our fashion-come-décor post, to send off the height of this season’s splendour, in splendour.
I’m sure you can safely agree, none of us will ever hold the attention of visitors for too long by taking them through ticket tear-offs or memorabilia from random experiences. “This is when we went to…” please!
In my opinion, it’s about having what you want in your home but never too much to maintain. If you’ve read and understood that overwhelming cover of most surface areas means a new way of life is in order, then enjoy these tips on the minimalist way.
