Design Inspirations this week… October 17, 2005 After a whirlwind weekend of dress shopping, I’m into things that are romantic & vintage-inspired. Things like… ~ delicate tone-on-tone lace ~ vintage blankets ~ stacks of old, yet pretty books ~ muted multi-color embroidery
oh i love this collection of inspiration! thanks
can you tell us a little more about those lovely books?
Any idea where that gawjus bag is from?
julia, the bag is a laser-cut leather purse from Paola del Lungo. The image is from a very old InStyle Magazine (2003) from my scrapbook. It’s so beautiful, I think!
the books are old classics wrapped in new fabric covers…they are from an old Elle Deco mag..and it was a story on reviving old things and making them look fresh again….I love them!
