Ethnic Patchwork Chic

Before I head out for bellydance class tonight, I just have to share these yummy pics I elledecornov07_cover.jpgfound in the new Elle Décoration (French version November 07) I bought today. Who couldn’t resist this tempting cover? Just love the gorgeous ethnic chic, bold colors and pattern kind of hippie Goa style. Wouldn’t you like to get lost in a book in one of these sofas or armchairs from Squint (UK)? Lisa Whatmough uses vintage and new textiles in her upholsteries, you can even bring your own textiles which she’ll then include. Très cool! Read some about her here and here. *** Bevor ich heute abend zu meiner Bauchtanzklasse düse, muss ich noch diese Fotos aus der neuen Elle Décoration (Französische Ausgabe November 07) zeigen. Wer könnte diesem verführerischen Cover schon widerstehen! Liebe diesen Ethno-Mix, kräftige Farben und herrliche Muster im Hippie-Goa-Stil. Wer würde sich nicht gerne in einem dieser Sofas oder Sessel von Squint (UK) mit einem Buch verlieren? Lisa Whatmough verwendet alte und neue Textilien in ihren Bezügen und man kann sogar eigene Stoffe mitbringen, die sie dan mitverwendet. Sehr cool!

And look at these amazing oversized vases below, created by Isabelle Braud. Her sculptures-16.jpgsite displays her paintings, sculptures, journal pages, ceramics etc. Her shoe sculptures are quite fun! Trips to Marocco and Pakistan certainly left a mark on her artwork. *** Sind diese übergroßen Vasen, kreiert von Isabelle Braud, nicht toll? Auf ihvases-15.jpgrer Seite zeigt sie einen Überblick über ihre Gemälde, Skulpturen, Journal-Seiten, Keramiken etc. Die Schuhskulpturen sind lustig! Reisen nach Marokko und Pakistan haben ganz klar ihre Kunst beeinflußt.
