From Zara to Living Etc. magazine and the majority of wallpaper&fabrics brands have introduced yellow in their collections…and I’m so happy!!! This colours it’s so summery, full of optimism and bold. It reminds me of my old flat in Romania which had one of the living room wall painted mustard. It’s such a versatile colour – you can make your room look joyful and colourful or using it on small surfaces and in pale tones, it can bring a fresh and calm atmosphere to the room. I created this moodboard for those of you who are looking for an cosy and chic atmosphere for their house. The image is taken from Graham & Green catalogue which I really like. I can see this house near the sea or a lake…although, to be honest I won’t mind having this desk in London so it will make me forget about the weather outside. Thanks for reading!
One of the reasons to leave in London is that you have where to choose from when it comes to decorating your space, furniture stores, home accessories, design fairs… and PUBs of course.. hehehe…because after so much craziness of running from a place to another, you definitely need a good drink. Thanks God we have internet and we have blogs to make our life easier. So, if you are looking for a really special wallpaper, I suggest ARTE International . Their collections are so elegant and vibrant. Somehow, the textures remind me of gem stones or natural textures. The ones that captured my attention were The Alchemy and Mirage collection. You just can’t go wrong with any of your choices.
I also encourage you to pay a visit to their showroom. It’s just stunning! I could easily take it as a place you can leave there. You will find more selections of wallpaper and you are in good hands when it comes to services and interior design consultation. Go for it, what are you waiting for?!
Here I am writing and showing you my last project with Wallpaper*. And when I thought that other projects were pretty intense..this was by far harder than what I’ve experienced before. I really have to mention that, I couldn’t have made it without the help of the photographer assistants and the other interns from the office ..and of course Olly, which I stressed her with thousands of txts and phone calls – thank you all. Although we had one of the biggest studios in London, it seams that we still struggled with space. The entire projects was challenging even from the very beginning. We had only few weeks to get all the products in UK from: Singapore, Mexico,USA etc. We usually have 1 month but because of the Christmas Holidays we had only few time left. Amy Heffernan ( the stylist ) had to change the strategy during the photo-shooting, because some of the products were still on their way. What was very interesting was that we worked in parallel on 2 or 3 sets. Whiles the photographer and stylist were busy with one set, we were already busy setting the next two. Juggling through the boxes and giving things to do to 4-5 people, it was fun and .. I have to use again, challenging ( I can’t find a better word really).
All in all… the result it’s stunning! I love the products and colour scheme that Amy chose and the Richard Foster’s lighting and composition skills (www.richardfoster.com).
I have to say that, the 4 months experience to Wallpaper* was worth it and looking back I realise how many things I learn and what a fantastic team was the Interiors. I couldn’t see myself doing something else and I hope I’ll have the chance to collaborate again with them in the close future.
Today, I decided to share with you some of my little styling projects I’ve done for Wallpaper* magazine. I’m quite content with the results taking in the consideration that we had: limited time, just a small studio with the basic equipment and some background paper. Charlotte Crowston was the photographer assistant and we both pulled out from nowhere materials to work with. I still have a lot to learn and I know that I can do better, but I do recon that I should be proud and share with you my first results and , maybe if you follow me, you can be the witness of my evolution. Ohh, there’s so much desire to work and become better!
