La Boheme

Nancy and I are working on a fabulous new design project...blog to follow. The color palette is so soft and zen. We are using shades of green.. moss, pear..green tea with different textures of cream. In design, my mind is always traveling and searching for what we will create next while still working in the design process of what we are creating for a client now.

 Last week, while chatting in the Boston Design Center with Timothy McSweegan, designer, writer, artist...he does it all..we swapped our design blogs. Reading Timothy's blog was like being given a ticket to see the movie inside his creative mind...70's and 80's rocker style, chic bohemian luxury, the gypsy, the poet... Please take a minute to check it out, http://www.sacredspacesandpaintedfaces.blogspot.com/

The next day, one of the fashion blogs that I follow, posted a Vogue fashion photoshoot featuring "70's bohemian rock chic". My mind becomes a scanner connecting the dots. I imagine 70's style, like celebrity stylist, Rachel Zoe describes her own signature style, "bronzed, sexy and wrapped up in Seventies-tinged laidback glamour.". Color palettes of violet, amethyst, emerald green, gold and black. Layers of pattern and texture..velvet, fringe, feathers and crystals...
