IN WITH THE PALM PRINT TREND

Monday, 14 August 2017

Wow wow wow! It’s been a while since my last post, which felt like a decade since I last wrote. I took a break from blogging for a while to help rejuvenate and now I’m back and ready to share!!!! 

So it seems that the palm prints are actually BACK and TRENDING! It's a trend from the late 1930's that keeps cycling back every few years. Here's a little history lesson, it all started with Dorothy Draper. She was one of the few that birthed interior decor. The first noted appearance of the leaf print was designed for the California Arrowhead Springs Hotel. After Draper's first success of the leaf print, Don Loper went on to challenge Draper and designed one of the most iconic wallpaper print - the Martinique (which you'll see below). Once again, the palm prints are everywhere!!! They're back in retail stores, shoe store such as ALDO, on phone cases, mugs, swim wear and the list goes on. I’m even quite sure that there are palm print undergarments :O I haven’t personally seen any but give me a shout out if you have! 

I’ve gathered my favorite botanical prints of home décor that I’d love to share with you all!!!!


First off we have the Bree Madden For Deny Tropics Duvet cover that can be purchased directly from Deny or from Urban Outfitters. I love this palm print in particular because of its sunset color palette. It makes me feel like I’m in the tropics… hahah they all do but this sends me away to a beachfront Jacuzzi suite on the white sands of Costa Rica.



WHY SHOULD I CARE ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY?

Thursday, 19 January 2017

Hey friends!!!! It's finally Thursday and the weekend is almost here! 

Off topic question but I must ask, SERIOUSLY, Who cares about sustainability

Why should I care about sustainability?

I always felt that "sustainable people" were somewhat "aliens". I don't mean the reptile textured animal species that are from another planet (I actually just giggled because I thought of ET), I just mean like foreigner. They're always parading around about recycling and "going GREEN". "Save our planet and GO GREEN". I'm sure you've heard it before and even meet one of those "sustainable people". 

Even in my early years of studies in interior design, I didn't see the importance of sustainability in interior space. I wasn't fond of the idea of "reusing" materials. It seemed like a downgrade or simply a cheap project. 

Don't get me wrong I DO recycle. I recycle EVERYWHERE I go but it isn't something I wanted to parade about or associate myself with until this past year. 

HELLO 2017!!!

Let's give it up to 2016 and welcome 2017!!!!
