1. Take inventory on your belongings and decide which are functional, beautiful, and which are just stuff. Recycle, donate, or regift the superfluous!
2. Create fresh vignettes in eye-catching spots around your home. Group a treasured object, art books, and some greenery on an entry console.
3. Connect with loved ones. Invite family and friends over to enjoy your newly revived space.
All Roads Lead To Rome.
I am inspired anew by my love, bell’Italia. During a Fall visit to this magical land, I visited Palazzo Fendi to reconnect with old colleagues and toured the recently remodeled 17th century space. This chic, avante-garde room looks toward the future while maintaining historical roots, with its geometric lines and boiserie a deep teal. It exemplifies a design philosophy that our homes keep us grounded while giving us the space to thrive.
I was excited to find this light’s designer Tom Dixon listed in Boutique Design magazine’s “Heroes and Mavericks” article.
Upon this backdrop, both the Museum of Modern Art and the New Museum of Art exhibited shows that were anything but bleak. The joyful, bold and bright palette of Matisse’s Cut-Outs at MoMA and Chris Ofili’s sensual, warm, bright and textural works at New Museum, were both infused with unexpected, free and experimental interactions of color in art works masterful and rich. New York City’s Winter Colors.
No surprise then that my palette is experiencing a shift. I can’t get enough of warm, rich and bright jewel-toned colors around me. In various combinations and layers. An interior cycle is said to last 10-15 years while a fashion cycle for 2.5-5 years. 2015 is off to a very bright start indeed!
