Back from the Americasmart and happy to be home. I feel inspired and design rejuvenated. I can’t say there were many baby products that were new, but some of the showrooms were filled with solid design ideas.
I arrived in Atlanta just in time to sit in on a talk given by Suzanne Kasler. I love her interiors. It was nice to hear about what inspires her. Like most ” visual people”, she is not just inspired by an interesting spaces, but by unexpected color arrangements, fashion,and the fine arts. Anything that may catch her eye, she ” files” for future references. Her own foyer is just beautiful.
After the lecture, I started to make my way around the showrooms. The interesting looks of industrial influences were apparent from the get go. It seemed like a celebration of the industrial revolution. Just great for a boys bedroom or even nursery. Check out this funky dresser.
This little cube seat duals as a storage unit could also be used as an ottoman.
I love these large wooden letter plaques. The entire alphabet is available.
They can be made into side tables as well.
More interesting looks….
A kid who loves adventure could use some of these decorating ideas…
Love this ottoman..
What a nice lamp for a baby’s nursery…
This lamp will make it’s way into Cici Crib this Fall.
Next up it was all about color…
