Furniture Fetish

There is a long list of movies with inspiring interiors but in 50 Shades of Grey the furniture stole the scenes. I found myself drooling over sconces and heart racing over sumptuous upholstery. Although the spare living area was better suited to a dance party, the individual pieces were stunning. I found my favorites from Koket design. http://www.bykoket.com/home.php

This dreamy upholstery is in Anastasia’s bedroom. A tease for the next movie might be to see this room redecorated. If there was ever an argument for reupholstery this is it. This piece by Koket is aptly named Desire.

It’s lounge chair counterpart shown in grey and silver.

The sconce that stole my breath is named Cloe.

The mirror is an edgy composition of points. Cheekily named Guilt.

And although it doesn’t appear in the film it should. I am smitten with the bands of steel in contrast finish and smoke glass. Koket titled the piece Intuition.

Ceramic Lighting

Ceramic lighting has an organic enveloping warmth. I have designed  a few pieces and have found many others who have embraced the material with incredible results. Once you have seen it, you will crave it.

Go for the Gold

The SLC Olympics were incredible. I attended the opening ceremonies and many of the events. At the opening ceremonies I felt in sync with such a broad collective, participating in unison was a very profound experience. The state was celebrating and all of the party guests were interesting people.

In the spirit of the Olympics, and in support of the dedication and commitment the athletes,  I give you the gold.
