A real doll house!

This quaint little house really looks like a doll house! But from the outside only! Because inside we are in a decorating magazine, everything is selected with care and taste, arranging the furniture. It is the work of architect Edwards Moore and the house is located in Fitzroy, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia.

If the icon of luxury Silicone Could Talk: Tzuri Gueta

The nobility of the craftsman's gesture

There are magical encounters.
And there are blog notes difficult to write.
Not because I have nothing to say, quite the contrary. But because I'd like to share and transcribe the moment of grace I experienced yesterday. I admit, I thought the whole evening. "Will I find the right words? "

In this summer period where you find the indescribable pleasure of letting slip the sand grains between your toes, imagine that you are walking on a gold mine? The silicon found in the sand (and to be used for creation of the glass) is the natural most present after oxygen (O2) When heated in the presence of carbon, it becomes a resin flexible: silicone. Yes, the one that you find in your cake pans and your bathroom joints.

Ewald marketing the colored silicone (which I have already mentioned) and for which I had a favorite, harasses me and said, "You liked the product, you should meet Tzuri Gueta. "Silicone is the noble material at the base of his work.

The appointment is made in the show room Tzuri the Viaduct des Arts, 1 Avenue Daumesnil in the 12th.
The Viaduct is dedicated to crafts and creators, the address is as promising.

I push the door ... And suddenly ...

The intoxication depths over me, Here caught up to me in a dream world, magical, transforming me nymph or mermaid, yes, that's what a Dragon Mermaid, it's me ...

The beauty of the objects, fine detail, carry me as rarely before. I met a ARTIST, a real ... for whom creation is natural and reflects such a deep and innate feeling. A knowledge of the sea, mother and source of all life. I dive in total apnea, time stopped. The loop is closed, the silicon converted to silicon, Tzuri recreates a marine world, organic, plant.

wonderful jewelry, dancing lianas, sumptuous fabrics ... my eye is captivated. My hands explore my mind and imagine a thousand creations I wish he invents. I visualize a creepers curtain here, extravagant lighting there ... I would like him to take possession of apartments that I renovated at the moment, he realizes unusual ideas at the height of his talent.

Then comes Carole, left the workshop hidden behind a curtain, his smock tells the hours and attention to detail creations. Her blouse is a work of art in itself. A pointilliste decor made of silicone droplets. She deserves to be exposed. Tony, he shows me marine sculptures, cushions, lampshades ... These pieces will be presented to House & Subject in September. I caress them with pleasure because they evoke the sensuality and softness. I shiver. I am drunk.
Tony arranges the wise, do not imagine the frustration I no longer hold them in hands ... Or would he identified my greed and fear it than I hang indefinitely?
I time line, the image of the material to which Tzuri gave nobility and measured his imagination.

High fashion made eyes at him, Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Christian Lacroix were recognized his talent which is exposed to the Grand Palace Botanical Garden Plant for Marriage.
Pending the official presentation of the collections Interior Design, I'll offer me some jewelry (from 70 €) but I will let fall the excitement, because on a whim, I could offer me the showroom.

You understood, and you know me, when I have such a favorite you know I'll talk!
highly House & Object!
Tzuri THANK YOU!

5 errors Deco itchy eyes

Yes dear reader, the decorating mistakes, we could make an encyclopedia. What is in fashion one day, goes out of style the next day.
If the wall frieze separating a bi-color wall'm talking 90s, what about the stickers 2000s? But the drama did not end there. There are errors that sting the eyes. Those that make you tears burning you cornea second degree.
Yes, I like when things sound relaxing to the eye. Coming home after a tiring day and the risk of dying of a seizure, I would wish on anyone. Yet there are people that the did not seem to bother ... until they finally pilloried bad taste. Here are 5 mistakes itchy eyes and I invite you to denounce with your friends!

 

 

triptychs
At best they are painted chain by Chinese artists at worst they are printed (always in China) to flood the market stores deco low cost.
We had enough tables 3, 4 or 5 parties that represent nothing original.
Once purchased, immediately obsolete.
At best you can retrieve the wood frame to turn on the grill!

5 errors Deco itchy eyes

 

 

Tables staggered
In line triptychs, there are tables staggered. To hide it is not easy to align the tables with a line or to fill a void, or lack of taste altogether. Create a framework composition requires thought and if you lack ideas, I invite you to watch the video at the bottom of this article.

2935104651_1_13

 

 

 

 

The chairs of different colors
Chairs of different colors, the message is not clear. Why two shades? Either it's a late stock the store has sold off, or you are color blind (this does not excuse everything)
The decoration requires a minimum of reflection and originality NOT through 3 chairs of color and 3 of another. This is also valid for chairs or cushions. You are warned dear reader.
Ditto for 6 chairs of different colors. Unless you're alive in a caravan in which case you do not have space for 6 chairs.
In short, you're in lasseras quickly and you regret your purchase

5 errors Deco itchy eyes

(C) The Redoute Interiors

 

 

A strip of wallpaper on the wall lost
The wallpaper is a wall, or pan, but NOT a lé himself lost on a white wall (or worse ...)
Again this is end of stock, there remained a roll and I did not know what to do.
Either you have the means to offer a pan which has the mouth or you have enough will to let this roll in the tray "Everything for Euro" in your DIY store on the corner.

5 errors Deco itchy eyes

(C) Belmon

 

 

The false…
The fake brick walls in non-woven wallpaper, fake wood paneling, false industrial aspects ... well bad impressions on bad media.
In short, whether you put a wall naked and you discover bricks that you operated in an industrial spirit, or you forget and you make a nice wall in a nice shade. Even Rene did not dare put it in his bar PMU Armentières.
Again, this is not because it is exposed in your DIY corner you have to buy it.

 

5 errors Deco itchy eyes

(C) Chantemur

If you can separate yourself from these bad habits, find your inner peace and harmony. You'll love to come home and no longer will risk cardiac arrhythmia.
Thanks WHO?

And as a bonus as promised, the video that tells you all to show your frames on a wall.

Norway: Fjords and traditional houses

 

Norway: Fjords and traditional housesFollowing my summer Norwegian spree ... And if you disembark, then I invite you to read my post Welcome to Norway.

After a first stop in a facility of Historic Hotels group in Europe, Solstrand, I propose a small boat trip in the fjords. The marine life suits me, or perhaps even that of fisherman. In any case, all these houses at the water's edge are charming. What do you think ?

Then we will go to Balestrand and in the historic village of Flam. Already in the 19th century, many travelers flocked to enjoy the magnificent sight of the cradle of all the fjords: the Sognefjord, Norway's longest and who is registered in the World Heritage of Unesco.

Hop, it left the road, we'll go boating, train ... and get to impress: forests, waterfalls, fresh air!
