Living Room Inspiration June 2010.

Sorry for not being able to post new stuff lately. I have been busy a design project of late which I will share more with you as time goes by. I promise it to be very different and special; worth the wait.

Anyway, today I have decided to put together a couple of pieces together as a living room inspiration for those who are thinking of putting together your living room or lounge area. I thought it would be lovely to have an entertainment area where you can just have a nice group of 8 to 10 people to just sit around and chat, while waiting for dinner or even play a little after dinner games. My kind of dinner would end with some form of game like gentlemen versus the ladies in trivia, pictionary, taboo or even trivia. It is such good fun, throws in a little competition and keeps the evening light and engaged.

My kind of lounge at the moment is a tat mismatched, rather than polished, it is nicely collected and fun to look at. The two long sofas facing each other with two marble coffee tables end to end between them, on adjacent to the sofa is the circle chair and next to the quack sofa on the other side is the crate table for the magazines. Above the coffee table are a collection of different cage lamps with different bulbs. Leaning up against a wall on the far side of the room opposite the circle chair is the side board.

Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2010.

Alexander Wang's Pre-Fall 2010 collection speaks to me for some strange reason. Recently I have been really into the whole tuxedo look, especially after acquiring a deconstructed Lanvin Tuxedo silk dress. I love the tuxedo look because it is formal yet playful for a girl at the same time. That's why the Alexander Wang collection appeals to me. The fun of being a female is the ability to really dress up, make believe compared to being a guy, and we should take advantage of that privilege.

The Alexander Wang Pre-Fall collection can be found at La Garconne, my favourite e-store of the moment. Happy Shopping!

My pick from the collection. Short Blazer Dress.

Merino Ribbed Fitted Sweater.

Tailored Onesie with Bustier.

Relaxed Tuxedo Blazer.

Asymmetrical Lingerie Dress.

Mulberry Home.

I am a fan. I love Mulberry as a brand and with Mulberry Home, it's no exception. I love the old school simplicity of their fabrics and the somewhat familiar feeling it gives. I don't think a whole room in plaid is the way to go but think of a little splash of it in a room in the form of a chair or even cushions in muted damask prints. It could bring into the room a little cosiness and yet a different touch without anyone thinking your granny had a hand in your decor.

Maison Martin Margiela White Objects.

It's a pity that I couldn't get hold of the link for the video for the F/W 2009 Maison Martin Margiela White Objects. However, you can see it here. I like the simplicity and the sense of familiarity with his objects like an empty snow dome or an old bottle converted into a lamp. These are my favourite objects from his collection.

Vers Audio.

Since the last time I reviewed Vers Audio, they have expanded their range for ipod/ipad/iphone casings, and a radio, clock, alarm and ipod player rolled into one. I love the green message that they are advocating and also the clean wood look. I own the Vers 2x myself and I strongly vouch for it's build quality and sound.
