To get you in the spirit ūüėČ

Is your tree up yet?

Wicker; trend to be left in the Golden Girls’ home? Or on its way back?


Remember the Golden Girls? Off course you do. We just sat through ALL seasons again and loved them. And not just for the stories. I absolutely loved seeing that decor again. I remember loving those pastels when I saw the show first as a kid. The pale blues, tappid greens, peach pinks, matte beiges and the wicker… the wicker everywhere. But I want to bet you that wicker is hard on its way for a massive come back if it hasn’t arrived yet. And¬†I think there will be enough room for a serious nod to the shoulder pad days. And¬†I even think some relatives of the same pastels will be joining….

So maybe not exactly like this………

 

But more like this…

 

Yes I know, not wicker but ratan. Who made you king of woven furniture?

Don’t remember or know Lloyd Loom yet? Make a note of that name. It’s coming back!

 

Want to join me on the lanai?

Now where did I see these chairs before…….

Aah, yes….

 

In that case……

There you go….

I wonder what’s next…

Pink arches, glass beds, white high gloss tables and beige leather anyone?

 

 

Yves Klein blue


Yves Klein (28 April 1928 ‚Äď 6 June 1962) was a French artist who was an important member of the¬†¬†Nouveau r√©alisme¬†movement. He was instrumental in the development of performance art. But he is also known for a well-known series of ultramarine blue monochrome paintings he first exhibited in Milan in 1957. This deep, lapis lazuli like, blue became known as International Klein Blue. He later used this same colour for his famous ‘Anthropometries’ series for which he covered women’s naked bodies with IKB and had them jump or fall against white linen and canvasses.

Today the colour is used in both contemporary and classic interior designs.
