what do you do with those bare walls, here are a few options.....


hanging up intricate rugs or a wedding throw like this one.

wrought iron art that comes in lots of different designs and shapes

funky mosaic tiling

cutout screen panels

space age fiber glass with lights

hanging plates up on the wall like this Moroccan brass one

writings on the wall- literally or a picture mural

felted artwork, also comes in individual shapes that you can apply to the wall in cool patterns

this would be my favored option:beautiful bissazza

phillipe stark

Here are some more examples of his work this year. He is so brilliant, he comes up with the most zany designs but they work. How about the chandelier on the picture on the ceiling. I also love the extensive use of white and glass.

design pics from LA

these photos were taken at the london hotel in LA where we stayed the last night, glamorous interior with lots of gold, these two are of gordon ramsay's restaurant in the hotel. Since i am a strict vego, i did not eat there as he is the biggest carnivore i know! but i could still appreciate the retro cool deco.(or is it hollywood regency style, i am still learning)

these are by far the most delicious things i tried in nyc, donuts from the donut plant, many interesting flavors including the rose petal one, although my favorite one was chocolate and all egg free!
