Create the Unexpected

Well I’m not going to say much about this other than the fact that the frilly edged freshly washed pillowcase blowing around outside a dilapidated fisherman’s hut in Fife made me smile. I liked the contrast, that’s all.

My train of thought then moved onto architectural salvage and reclaimed antiques and I reminded myself of two great shops, one here in UK called RE and one in New York called abc home both of which display a profusion of crafted and recycled home wares, a great antidote to wall to wall matching designer interiors which can sometimes appear rather soulless. Contrasts work. Rare next to utilitarian, designer alongside high street, vintage with modern, rough next to smooth, mix it up and you can create a room with attitude.
