Deco Off

When I came across these street scenes I was taken back by their beauty and originality. This stunning lighting display adorned Rue de Mail in Paris to promote Linen & Hamp during Paris Deco Off in January. The collection of drums in all their printed fabrics and papers is simple but impactual.

LOVE.

Neon

I thought I’d add a neon touch to today’s post with a lighting extravaganza. The only way you’re going to get your point across is by saying it in neon, after all!

A few weeks ago I wrote this post looking at adding an extra dimension to your home with marquee lighting and this is another added extra to give you inspiration.

What do you think? Would you have something like this in your space?

On Display

Do you ever have cute notes, favourite looks, inspirational quotes and photos that you treasure but have no where to put them? This might be the solution!

I really like the idea of creating a hanging inspirational wall. All you need is some lengths of wire or string and you can fasten your postcards, magazine tear outs, invitations onto it.

Simple but effective.

Dusk

I recently stumbled across this amazing artist, Rune Guneriussen. These are by far my favourite images that I’ve seen in a while! There is something capturing about the subtle light within these images, almost romantic. I have always been a massive fan of light installations as a medium too.

Guneriussen is working in the transition between installation and photography. As a conceptual artist he works site specific primarily in nature, but also with more manmade structures. The isolation of objects are turned in to installations, most of these are not seen by audience, but only photographed. As an artist he believes strongly that art itself should be questioning and bewildering as opposed to patronising and restricting. As opposed to the current fashion he does not want to dictate a way to the understanding of his art, but rather indicate a path to understanding a story.

I don’t know about you, but the light of these images makes me crave winter walks!
