Jesus, times flies. It´s already October, soon mid-October. After a long and warm September, fall has finally arrived. I'm still in the transitioning faze, having trouble dressing for the colder weather. Wanting to wear skirts and high heels one day and the next big comfy knits and sneakers... My wish list for October is somewhat ambivalent in the same manners as my state of mind for the time being. Give me a couple of more weeks and I'm sure I get a hang of it.
Earlier this week I did a styling of an one bedroom apartment. I think you can guess it´s a guy living here. The lack of color, lack of personals, lack of flowers, lack of decoration. Not very much of anything... The mission were to make it more appealing to a broader crowd of potential buyers. Check out the before and after. I think we succeeded! I´ll let you know when it´s out for sale.
One of the trends spotted on the runways these last weeks are metallics, gold, silver and all in between. Metallics in fashion makes me think of spectacular looks and usually makes my mind wander to New Years festivities. But metallics can also be really beautiful as accents in spring and summer, think sandals, clutches and why not a swimming suit or bikini in silver? A great accessory to sun kissed skin. Interior wise we´ve seen the metallics for some time now but they are still hanging in there.
In our hallway I´ve used mirrors in different shapes and sizes to create something fun and inspirational to a space usually not considered high priority. Which is too bad since it´s the room you first enter when inviting someone home. Please don´t pay any attention to the sofa, it´s my next make over project...
