My parents had a bunch of macrame wallhangings in the house when I grew up and I absolutely hated them. They were a leftover from the seventies and they were not up to my very discerning design sensibilities as a child (and yes I was a weird kid). But as they say everything old is new again and these days I am rather enraptured by the idea of wallhangings. And why not? I love texture and geometric patterns. Plus textiles offer something that something like a photograph does not: a sort of tactile warmth. Wallhangings are not yet mainstream though I bet that’s about to change. Will these spark an outbreak of macrame crafts like in the seventies? Hopefully not! That way these pretties will still seem unique and interesting for some time to come.
I don’t usually post full Boiler Room sessions on here because why….I don’t know. They’re too long maybe? Anyway. This one I find to be exceptional. The music and setting are both intensely gorgeous. Watch it, transport yourself to some beyond cool party on a rooftop in Brooklyn and dream of warm summer nights.
1 – That moment when the sun pops out and your disco ball comes to life. 2 – A sliver of sun. 3 – Bathroom selfie! Eeek! I blame Beyonce. 4 – A gloomy yet beautiful sort of evening. 5 – Finding patterns in the everyday. This on a vending machine. 6 – Hand soap! Hilarious and kind of macabre
I hope you Americans are enjoying your extra long weekend! It’s not a holiday here but I actively encourage any reason to be thankful. Remember to hold onto the that gratitude while you are out there shopping the sales. Love & light. xx
