A Beautiful Combination of Created and Found ObjectsMarch 27th, 2011 in blog, projects
As you all know I am an empty nester now and that means time for a change. I haven't revamped the look and feel of my abode for sometime and I think the time is ripe for something different. A move may be in my near future....so I'm thinking about what I want my new pad to look like. This is very exciting for me and gets my creaqtive juices flowing! I'll be combining some of my old time favorites with newly found objects and furnishings that are lighter, brighter, and a little more on the amorous side. After I have gathered these goodies they will be tossed together with industrial fixings. Not sure what I will refer to my new look as ...maybe something like Romancing the Steel, Sense and Sensibility, Rock Solid Romance. The phrase will come as the style evolves....it always does.
I have always been more about the overall picture and not just about the junk or the project. It all has to fit...it all has to make sense. Found items, for me need to be re-purposed with a purpose. Some items are begging for an overhaul, while others are simply beautiful as they are. The thoughtful combination of found items with new items, true antiques, stunning colors, fabulous textiles, oodles of texture, artisan creations, imaginative presentation, and the celebration of personal style and individuality are all basic and very important components of the original JUNKMARKET Style message.
Be creative, be yourself, have fun, and don't follow the pack......do your own thing!
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
