From Mod to Modern
On this Friday August 31st… I cannot properly concentrate! In just a few hours, my life will change forever with the airing of the first EVER episode of Sauvez les Meubles on Québec’s Canal Vie. I have barely slept a few hours and I have been inhabited by a nervous energy since then.
So, while I do the happy dance all over my house, I thought I would let you bask in some of the great designs by Daun Curry. I love the way she integrates form and texture in a seamless manner. Her profuse use of white and cream tones is also very refreshing don’t you think?
Although I think I have made it clear over time that I am not a very law abiding “design” citizen, there are some unwritten ones that I do follow (somewhat). Transparent anything makes a space look larger. And it makes sense right? As your eye is not distracted by the chairs, the table and its surroundings can take the center stage and become the focal point to the room.
Another one is to never hang mirror, that can shatter if they fall, over beds. Well let’s rewrite that rule and simply say that mirrors over beds look great, just make sure that you have them put up to resist a 8.9 earthquake!
As for the wallpaper thing, I know it’s been said that it is not a good idea to install them in the bathroom… I kind of agree. Moisture will make it peel over time and worst mould at the seams. But then again that too looks fabulous and so I have some to terms with its use in spaces where there is only a soaking bath (low moisture) and installed over bathroom gyprock (again to reduce moisture). See, I do follow SOME rules!
On that delightful note, let me now return to my dancing in my living room with joy at seeing (finally) my show on the tube. May it have a long life. Yé!
