Futuristic Glamour ! Space 2010

Recently, I’ve been working with new mediums. Metal and acrylic to be exact. You may have noticed this trend with my “Glamour” line which includes mirrored pieces as well as clear acrylic pieces.

 It’s fun to experiment with new material, and at the same time, it’s also a learning experience. Acrylic and metal need different adhesions than wood, for instance. They cannot be sanded as rigorously as wood, so preciseness is a must! Stress levels are different too. While some acrylics have a little “give” to them, they also crack easily if you are not using the correct tools when cutting and shaping. All said and done  though, acrylics and metals bring a different look to home decor.

 My recent article in Fashion Doll Quarterly Magazine explores the idea that furnishings for the home can be made from many different materials. And that “futuristic” does not necessarily mean cold and uninviting.

For your viewing pleasure, here are some photos from the shoot that were not used in article.

    As always, I love this. Contemporary, yet gives a nod to the past. Very chic, and I would love to live in an environment like this, myself. 🙂

  11. OMG! Every room is to die for. They are gorgeous. The color palettte is fantastic and I love the open-ness of the clear chairs. So light and airy.

    Can I move in? Please? Marsha, Enchanticals

    This is brilliant. And, those “flowes” in the vase are truly creative. I adore the shininess and the open feeling, esp. the DR table set.

    I covet it. Nah… that is one of the 9 deadly sins. Let me rephrase that. I really really really love it 😉 Marsha, Enchanticals
