I am totally smitten with this month’s issue from the UK mag called LivingEtc! I know exactly why I am drawn to drool over this mag … it’s the unique details showcased within the homes! You know the kind, then ones that make you say “ooohahhhh”, or “that’s sooo cool” or “what the heck” … the details that make your heart smile. Like in the above photo I LOVE the swirl side table! And, did you see the console table’s base?
Unique details like the painted dining table ….
Try to picture the space without the red/orange dining table, and you will see how the table gives the vibrancy in their space. I luv.
Unique details like the floor lamp (on the left side) ….
At a quick glance it looks like a submarine telescope coming out of the ground (yes, I have a vivid imagination!). I luv.
Unique details like in the walls …
The bricks, the wall paint, the glasses-hole in the wall (next to the tub, did you spot it? It used to be a hole with a cover to allow ventilation for the room; the owners added a stained glass and voila -> creative uniqueness!
Unique details like the painted rug in the floor ….
Actually, it is NOT painted! It is a rug, but at first glance I thought it was painted. And that, my friends, is what I call an inspired thought = when you can look at something (rug) and be inspired to turn it into something else (paint). Hmm, now if I can only find a client who will allow me to paint their floors!
