boutique hotel em Londres com charmosa decoração

There is a boutique hotel in London which is a bless for the eyes and soul. It’s called 40 Winks London this eccentric hosting with a magical atmosphere. Full of charm and personality, the decoration is signed by Mr. Carter, award-winning interior designer and owner of the establishment.

The more 300 years house was working as backdrop for celebrities and fashion editorials and in these photo shoots always had models and photographers asking if they could not stay overnight in place. So Mr. Carter decided to not only accept guests but also welcome then with style.

If you are a little tired of minimalist décor like me, leaves of white color aside and come delight in these chambers filled with details, surprises and elegance.

I thought amazing  the tulle PomPoms as highlights. They are proof that good taste doesn’t mean spending a lot of money, but have the eye to the potential and the sensitivity to capture what passes each piece.

This PomPoms arrangement brought irreverence, fun, a delicate touch and fluidity, maybe for remind us the ballet costumes.

The cheap and expensive can Yes walk together, since well harmonised.

Textured paints, wallpapers, Oriental references, velvet, dark colors, hats, cane, toys. Phew! How much wealth! All these details gives a mystery and fantasy vibe . Where’s Johnny Dep offering a cup of tea?

Mr. Carter aesthetics and his eye to details is apparent everywhere you look. The mixture of different objects, textures, aesthetic and materials result in this captivating and alluring hotel.

And if  you’re crazy to do that clean and exterminate some objects from your house (support unconditionally), train the eye and think about it if something could be a beautiful decorative object. 🙂

colorful and surreal design pattern print

Yupiiii, today I inaugurate the new blog´s section where I will show you prints that I designed and what inspired me to create them. The inspiration to create a print or another kind of art can come from various sources. Today I start showing the Circus collection, wich I designed to Trevisan Concept. The inspiration came while I was visiting the Maison & Objet in Paris (I’ve talked about this incredible fair here).

It is realy important to be always watching everything around us. Creativity does not come out of nowhere, the ideas are always connections of our repertoire that are stored in the brain plus our interpretation. Magazines, covers, packaging, fashion, posters, blogs like this (Aháá), everything goes into our information box and as the repertoire grows, easier it is to create new ideas.

When I visited the Maison & Objet, a huge home decoration fair that happens in Paris twice a year, I have observed that many stands had the circus-themed decor, or even some products like wallets and purses. Added to this a lot of memories of carousels images that I saw in Paris. It didn’t take long and all that information became the mood board above (ok I compiled just a little bit:P)

I also associate the Christian Lacroix designs, which I’m a big fan and I identify with his aesthetics. In the image above are examples of the designer’s art, surreal, colorful and irreverent and jolly.

All this information on the brain added to my interpretation of all of it,  resulted in the collection below. 🙂

The prints were applied on some home decor objects. I loved the collection and I was realy proud to see the interpretation of what is around applied to design.

vestido de tule rosa antigo

So obsessed with these photos! And for these dresses! Created by designers Silvia Chiteala and Laura Cazacu, Chatronette is a brand based in Romania, that makes beautiful dresses, different, creative, with lots of embroidery, flowers, tulle and colors. Frida Kahlo and art nouveau are just some of the many inspirations of the designers. With an amazing art direction, the pictures have a concept inspired by Sophia Coppola, Tim Burton and Frida Kahlo, and are filled with dream, magic and surrealism.

“We create these imaginary worlds, because the world needs stories and see ourselves as Visual storytellers.” – they say.

I love everything in this picture, the color palette, the gradients, the scenery, the balloons … But I would really like to see the size of the bench that is underneath the dress model. 🙂

I don’t remember when was my first contact with the works of the artist Joana Vasconcelos, but I know it was after moving to Portugal. The fact is that as soon as I saw, I was completely in love. So many textures, fabrics, threads, shine, shapes that turns into unique pieces. I always say that after I start a new print design, I don’t know the right time to stop. I put some elements, put and keep puting. And I think that’s why I identified so much with the beauty of these works, which give the impression that always fit an element there, another element here, but if you stop to add thing, is just already perfect.

In 2012, Joana Vasconcelos, became the first woman and youngest creator to exhibit some of his works at the Palace of Versailles in Paris.

The artist says she never was an honor student and found in arts freedom to explore and experiment.

Joana created arts using large pieces of ceramics of Bordalo Pinheiro giving them a “new skin”, lining them fully in crochet.
