Ideas from Ivy & Piper
No baby news as of yet, but in the meantime the show (aka my life) must go on…Last night, I perused the latest issue of Ivy & Piper and really liked the range of styles they incorporate in the magazine. Here are some of my favorite images from this issue and ideas that I took from them.
I enjoyed the article called Urban Vintage, it shows the home of Lucy Glade-Wright, owner of Australian on-line boutique Hunting for George.
Idea: Piles of books in an unused fire place. Also: The use of a garden gnome inside (garden gnomes remind me of the movie Amelie) and a giant letter leaning against a wall.
Idea: Leaning art against a wall on the floor. Why hang it all if it looks good standing on the floor? Also: The use of a road sign as wall art. We have a STOP-sign leaning against the wall in our entry, courtesy from the previous owners and I’ve been debating whether I like it. I think I’ll keep it…
I also really enjoyed the articlecalled LA Glam – House of Honey. It showcases the work of Tamara Kay of House of Honey. The house is a mixture of vintage elegance and modern sensibilities. I liked the use of light and dark throughout the house.
Idea: Using a neutral fabric for upholstering a sofa on the inside and a pattern on the outside, and painting the wood to go with the color of the pattern. Also: One solid colored dark wall and a pattern on another.
Idea: Charcoal wall + geometric golden accent fabric + white vintage furniture. Also: A bust as decoration adds classic elegance.
Idea: Use a large stencil on a wall in an area with high ceilings to add elegant definition. Also: Use a lucite or glass (?) table in an already large room for an even more spacious feel.
