Inspiration: Dark Walls

Hello Lovelies,   It's been a while since I posted here... LIfe's been busy.Which is a good thing!   So... back to my timeless love for dark, dramatic places. I found this beautiful space shared by a couple of creative people on the French IKEA website (they have a great "inspirational ideas" page): I like that it's set in the city of Berlin, and that two bloggers/artists live there.

In The Mood For Dark Wood

Hi, I'm happy to be back in town! ;-) I'm glad to discover I'm not the only girl into dark, masculine wood. Check out Nina's apartment on AT! I've always been into dark wook and masculine flair. I believe it derives from my genuine love for Art Deco and the Thirties style, esp. Hollywood's Golden Era! Here are a few examples I stumbled upon last week on the blogosphere: an amazing collecting of Danish and German vases (unknown source). Pernille Vest is the stylist for this photo. Check out her amazing portfolio! ... [Lire la suite]
