[Nature morte au bougeoir (The Candlestick), Edouard Vuillard, circa 1900. Oil on millboard. National Galleries Scotland. Larger view here.] This post is a sort of test run for a new blog I might start next year. The idea is to scout textiles based on the richly patterned fabrics, rugs, and wall coverings seen in Vuillard's work. Sometimes I might do deep dive research into a particular painting and attempt to find doppelgänger textiles. But I'd also likely share picks just loosely related…
Mix and Chic
Check out the Lucky Brand executives' power couple Dave DeMattei and Patrick Wade's stylish five-bedroom, 5,000-square-foot Beverly Hills residence below! via What a beautiful home! Each room was renovated and decorated by themselves without the help of a decorator. Got to love their sophisticated style and incredible talents. The dining room, kitchen and the pool area are my favorites, which room are you drawn to?
What's new At Frame By Frame
There’s so much to love about this space and the custom framed abstract art featured in it… But, our favorite component is the deep, black matting. With a white background, and white frame, it would’ve been easy for these pieces to get “lost” in all that brightness. The dark tones of the black frame design components ground everything. Not to mention that fantastic rug, which mimics the frame design. Way to design a space around favorite custom framed art pieces!
Paterson “Barn” – Home Tour
Today we visit the "Paterson Barn", as Craig and Jade Paterson's friends refer to the young couple's Houghton cottage. They've been renting the quaint little house from Jade's father for the past 3½ years. The main house on the property is an old Herbert Baker house. It was built in 1900 and the Paterson's cottage used to be the stable and cart house.
