Month: October 2013

I wish I knew how to give up and just really give up.  Unfortunately I’m too stubborn or I’ve learned through own experiences that nothing that is worth living in life is ever granted.   This week has been crazy for me, a lot of effort and work, running around for things that at the end either don’t work or don’t make sense.  That’s why I’ll be a bit absent from blogging these days.  Need some time to concentrate all my physical and emotional efforts on accomplishing a major project deadline.  I’ll be posting very sporadically so until then stay good.  Enjoy!

Usually open bookcases are mostly used in spacious rooms to bring
division and to display objects and few books as opposed to being
overloaded with stuff.  We can see them quite often in the movies from
the 60’s and today in public spaces.  These bookshelves
are more of an art themselves as the objects displayed in them.  Enjoy!

Many interior designers inspire me and Steven Volpe
is among the top ones.  I truly admire his sense of individuality and
refinement.  In his spaces we can feel his love for art, exclusive
pieces and identity in environments that are more
than livable.  Enjoy!

Ricardo Tisci on accepting the offer to be Givenchy’s fashion director.  “[…] my mother called me and said to me, ‘I am going to tell you
something I haven’t even told your sisters: I think I am going to sell
our house because your sisters are struggling, they’re having children,
they need the money. I will go to a retirement home.’ When I heard that
it was like a knife in my heart. I felt like such a failure, that my
mother had to sell the house of my father whom I don’t remember. And
then I went to Paris, and they showed me a contract with all these zeros
on it, and it was like help from God.” from Wikipedia.  I already love him.
It’s interesting how some posts develop.  I started with a different
idea for today’s post until I realized that most of the images I
selected had something Givenchy in them.  From Clutches to stunning
patterned clothes to bags and accessories, everything Ricardo Tisci creation is simply amazing.  No one makes the wild and gothic side look this
sophisticated better than him.  Enjoy!
