The Hollywood Award Season is winding down for 2015 and the 87th Annual Academy Awards is upon us. Who will take home this year’s Oscar?
With all eyes on who is going to win the coveted golden statue, many forget the years and years of work and honing of their craft that went into this ultimate reward. Neither a movie nor an actor is an “overnight sensation”. The seed for a movie may have been planted 10+ years ago just as an actors journey to the big screen may have begun as a child.
The same holds true for your home. Our experiences, travels and tastes make up the canvas for what is to become our long dreamed of castle. A “taste” for culinary grandeur may inspire us to spotlight our home’s kitchen above all other rooms… or a love of getting lost in a good book may instill a longing for that cozy library of our dreams, allowing us to get lost in world history, romance novels or the fantasy of “Alice and Wonderland” as we did when we were children. Each room would then take us back to memories which feed our soul, reminding us of foods, experiences, travels or friends along the path.
Just as the spotlight shines on the actors, actresses, directors and movies this season… I’m going to shine the light on some of the rooms which inspire me to be creative in my own abode and home decor.
My own eclectic style and taste has developed over years of travel throughout the U.S., Peru and Chile; working with indigenous cultures in S. America; as well as my tremendous love for the outdoors and nature. The beautifully handcrafted baskets, accessories and lighting from Kouboo add an elegant touch to my comfortable “style”.
And my winners are:
I could go on and on with all of my favorites…but I’ll let you relish these for now! Maybe one or two have sparked your imagination to create something new and bold in your own home decor.
As I look over the room photos I chose to share I see a common theme – LIGHTING! It’s amazing how adding a statement piece can turn an ordinary room into an extraordinary room! Now is the perfect time to light up your own life and create something new and exciting! Have fun!
