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.

KNOCKOUTS! Black Kitchen?

Oh yes. If these kitchens could travel they would be at Fashion Week. These powerful spaces are stunning. Making no apologies for their sleek silhouettes and striking stature. Black kitchens. This is happening.

Color Blush, Rosé

As summer stretches into the horizon the blush of the season beckons even more. The new pastels, including Rosé feel very current and fresh. It lacks the brown quality of  decades old mauve. For some pink is reviled and intolerable. It is a token of a bygone era and symbol of conforming to oppressive ideas. To me it is absolute sunshine.  Choosing to embrace it today for the same reason many of my older colleagues previously rejected it. We are seeking modern and opening new worlds. What we want to see is something different, something imbued with the character of life itself.

The fashion world has wholly accepted these palette and it’s rapidly showing up in interiors. I love rosé with hemlock, nudes, whites and even blacks. best Rose
