A Day of Silence

Today, many fellow lifestyle bloggers are joining in a day of silence for Newtown. This is a tragedy, I believe, that we all feel personally.  Our hearts go out to the victims, their families and loved ones, the first responders and those who are, still now, sifting through the aftermath.  Most of us have felt this so deeply and hugged our own loved ones tighter, appreciated the moments more and wanted to send comfort, love and support to all those affected.  Our hearts, love, thoughts and prayers are with the Newtown families — today and every day.

Wedding Belles

Recently, I was reading CNN and came across an article featuring colorful wedding dresses which featured Texas-based fashion house St. Pucchi. Not only are their dresses exquisite, but the locations they choose to do the photo shoots are as well.  Let’s take a look.

Love the glazed backgrounds below…

Great textured & papered aged metallic background above and I looooooove the rusted beams and background below. Modern Masters would be able to help me out with both!

Do click on the images above to enlarge them a bit. Very cool finish for the right space!

Such creative and loose ornamental scrollwork above – very nice lilac-gray colorations, too.

Although I commented on the backgrounds, I do think each and every dress is beautiful — there’s something for everyone! Please do take a moment to see the St. Pucchi website – they have glorious dresses and lots of eye candy.  If you’re shopping for a wedding dress, do note they have boutiques in the US and internationally. I also enjoyed reading the story about the designer, Rani Totman, and the success she has enjoyed since launching her company in 1985. I hope you’ve also enjoyed seeing her designs amongst these beautiful backgrounds. Which would you say is your favorite dress and background?  Stay inspired, gorgeous ones!

I’ve Just Seen a Face…

One of my Top 5 Favorite Beatles song is I’ve Just Seen a FaceLove that song.  I’m also very fond of faces in Interior Design so imagine my pleasure at spotting a few more.  Shall we?

(above) This is a beautiful wall mural that Amerikka Design Office specified for the of Chico’s restaurant in Finland. It was featured in both La Boheme and The Contemporist.

(above) A Chinese restaurant, Mr. Wong, in Sydney, Australia and the decor is decidedly 1930′s glamour.  Beautiful portrait, no? The restaurant was featured in We Heart.

So many fantastic artists leave their indelible marks in public places.  Above, you can see the emotional work of Andrea Michaelsson in Barcelona and below is the unique work of El Mac.

(below) We finish off with a particularly famous face, that of Jean Harlow (the Pop Art version, of course).  At one time, it was the façade of the influential London boutique Granny Takes a Trip. I didn’t know it then, but it was the inspiration for an interior mural I shared in a 2008 post.

I hope this has proved enjoyable, gorgeous ones.  Do let me know if have created a similar work of art for yourself or a client as I’d love to hear about it!

Fashionable Stencils

Hello!  I wrote a guest post today entitled Fashionable Stencils for the lovely Design Amour, one of the incredible blogs by Melanie Royals of Royal Design Studio.  (In fact, it’s one of the first blogs I ever read and subscribed to — I’ve been faithfully following it for about six years now.)  The post is about the direct line from Fashion to Stencils — at least for me.  Here’s a sneak peek at one of the inspirations, a gorgeous Dior gown.  Do click here to read and see more…
