trompe l’oeil

wall treatment

hi there, happy thursday! i wanted to share a website that has inspired me for many years called KOZIEL. it’s the brainchild of Christian Koziel and he’s taken the trompe l’oeil effect to the highest level with wallpapers, borders and velvet panels. if you want to transform a plain wall in your home, office or store,  this is the way to go.

his tufts have always been one of my faves.


and who wouldn’t want a mantle and chandelier?

lights out


allo, ca va? day 30. it’s been a month of mulling over and now it’s time to take action. the quote above is helping me not to censor all the ideas and just run wild till the answers come.  that said, it’s time to change up the next month and take the focus off my blathering and bring the camera out into the world. tonight i’m beat and am gonna take a hall pass and pass out. bonne nuit!
