Lights, Camera, Action!

I've always had a thing for stage & production design having worked for a film and television production company in another life. I'm always fascinated with the way film sets are staged and the final design. They always tell a story. 

This one below is from the movie 'Somethings Gotta Give'. The wicker chairs are wicked! and black. Very clean and smooth lines accentuate this set design as well as the neutral colours used.

Next one up is from the 'Adjustment Bureau' movie. The ceiling lampshade

Happy 150th Anniversary London Underground Map

It's the 150th Anniversary of the London Underground Map. Can you believe it? Is it really that old! Wow. But you really can't do without it. I keep on finding old version here and there around my home. They are definitely here to stay!

I love this beautiful London Underground Map Edition of Blue Marmalade's

To expose or not expose?

Exposed building materials? Are they your thing? I've always had a thing for a bit of difference. Bringing the outside in type of thing. It creates a unique and rusty kind of ambiance. Country-Cottage feel mixed with contemporary pieces of furniture.

The industrial feel is making a big comeback. People are now more interested in sustainable and green living. Upcycling is becoming the order of the day. In with the new and out with the old. 

Loving the old rusty chairs too.
