Contemporary Buzz n°7 "Terrarium"

I know that it is not obvious what I'm doing here. I have to explain it.

Doing these "trendboards" is like giving myself a theme to play with. It is a way of organizing ideas according to the current decoration trends and thus creating a "Leitmotiv".
You give yourself a target, you categorize ideas in order to make it simple to "view" your designs.

I will follow these themes once I'll begin to create new designs. It is very helpful to create imaginative places with special colourways and atmospheres based upon trends. There is always a certain synchronicity throughout the world concerning the need of colours or shapes.




Contemporary Buzz n°7 "Terrarium"
coloured rubber-coated wall lamps, candle-holders and sofas, baroque furniture with a crazy touch, monkey-vegetable-peelers and high-heeled laquered pumps, mulitcoloured stripes and dots. The little guy on the lower right edge is a creature designed by famous french fashion designer Christian Lacroix and his name is "Monsieur Doudou":)

Andrea this room makes me laugh. I love the shoes hanging on the wall and Monsieur Doudou. Now, there you go. Invent an icon to get yourself known.

Thanks for your detailed answer to my questions. I think I'd have to take a course of some kind to understand even an eensie the technical software options. I have nothing not even photoshop. Old fashioned. But you are doing marvelous and how wonderful to return to school to explore what you love. Have fun creating. Suki

Suki hi, I'm glad this makes you laugh! You know, you can get to know photoshop in an evening course, it is really interesting and fun to discover this tool, you just need time and a computer to practice...

And that fish swimming peacefully in this fun room reminds us of the fact that even in the craziest moments of our life,there is some meaningful point...

The painting framed in the middle looks like one of Elizabeths paintings! Is it?
