In shadow

The silhouette portraits have been around since the 18th century, but like most art forms they seem to be popular again. Whether called shades, profiles or shadow pictures these were pictorial representations of a person cut out from black thin cards – but then the camera came along. On a recent Sunday brunch at Bobo Restaurant in Greenwich Village (btw, one of my favorites now) a wall filled top to bottom with gracious profiles caught my eye. The funny thing is that after that, they seem to follow me EVERYWHERE. You can find them in toss pillows, shower curtains, tote bags, votive candle holders, bedding and wall art. This has now become a popular trend for home decor. And guess what? You can even get your own silhouette portrait done by Brooklyn artist Carter Kustera. They are really unique and a fun addition to personalize your decor.

Whether in furniture, rugs, wallpaper, acces- sories even clothing this fresh and vibrant color is here to stay for a while.

Rock-paper-scissors

Wallpaper has been around for centuries, but in vogue, on and off. However, we had not seen the surge in popularity that it has had in the last couple of years since the 70s. Thankfully, this new renaissance has no traces of that era. Nowadays there is something for everyone. I took a look at this amazing concrete-like wallpaper and a had to do a double take.
