floor to ceiling walls

hi all, how’s life tonight? darn, it’s already late again.  i’m ready to tune out and turn in but wanted to post a couple pics from the maison objet show. i’m honing in on the pieces that are on my wishlist to bring for the a/d show, but of course not everything happens like we want so i’ll put a few hooks out there and see what ends up in the mix.

these were some of my favorite lighting fixtures and would be happy to have any one of them center stage. they’re radical in person, all handmade with clear or opaque glass beads.

phone pics, sorry so blurry

it was random to find this one with such a nutty display but it was a beauty made of superfine metal mesh. it reminds me of something from the 30s, they used to make something with this but i’m not sure what…it’s like teeny chains. you see it on the bottom of antique purses sometimes.

these by the bed or vanity

and for the walls, i’m working with koziel who is sending some great architectural pieces. at least that’s the trompe l’oeil effect that they achieve with their images on fabric, like this door. it’s a quick change for a a plain box. i was into this last year and am glad to see it being done on a really fun level.

they have wallpapers too.

and these fabulous decals of window guards from old french architectural renderings.

and this is not from the maison but i’m throwing it in as the floor cause i need to start from the ground up. anyway thanks for indulging me, it’s good to come here and lay it out or at least throw it out there and see what comes together. we’ll see is right~for now, good night!

    Love that wallpaper, so cool, and all the lighting, especially that sconce. It reminded me of a sconce from Circalighting that I want to put in my master bathroom if I ever get to re-do it:

    Clare especially liked the chandelier made of little chains.

    Can’t wait for the AD show. The girls are already picking out what dresses they want to wear!

    The black and white color combination really makes me wanna change my room color, it looks so clean. I also love to see those different wall papers. The lights design also makes it stunning.
