mosaics

 

mosaic from the vatican collection

i love mosaics. i inherited this from my mother. my father always says my mother would turn our house into a church, if she could, from all the mosaics and artwork she has collected in her 51 years. this piece really stood out to me. i don’t know whether it’s the sharpness in the edges of the color variances or simply the metallic hair, i just like it. i adore all the geometric shapes in this mosaic. i feel the artist really portrayed something by only making the Blessed Mother’s hair, shoulder, and hand soft, and everything else sharp. such thoughtfulness.

bliss.

 

i'm speechless.

one word...chandelier

 

everything from the marble, to the 19th century chandelier, to the pink towels is perfection. the combination of gold and silver pleases my taste entirely. i would definitely like to be the madame to this bathroom. complete and utter bliss.

my child

 

simply precious.

wow. this is the cutest thing i have ever seen. i’m predicting the future: she will attend every fashion week by age 6, by age 10 she will have her own show, by 18 she will be editor-in-chief of vogue. i want my kid to be just like this…good thing my wonderful boyfriend is super cool and super japanese.

*thank you http://culturesnob.tumblr.com/ for this little slice of heaven.

 

just because.

sometimes we just need to look at beauty to be inspired. this girl’s exquisite face, paired with this hooded leather jack, is my idea of beauty.

it’s ok to be a wall-flower.

 

rustic, copperish feeling.

perfectly busy.

delightful.

 

i used to think wall paper was from the early 90’s, together with mullets, parachute pants, and wayfarers. thank god only the latter two came back with the wall paper. lately, i have been obsessed, nothing short of that. wall paper, when done correctly, can change the look of a room without any major adjustments. it’s a great way to update your space, without updating your budget. right now i’m loving metallics, i hope my mom doesn’t mind, because i am feeling a DIY project coming on. i will keep you posted!
