Get the Look…Chartreuse

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

We love splashes of chartreuse right now. Like a slice of lime in a cool drink, shots of vibrant acid chartreuse bring a bit of zing into a neutral space. We think it looks equally smart mixed in amongst earthy charcoals & greys or living alongside vibrant pinks.

Happy Valentines Day

Valentines

We love this postcard because the front is so cheeky yet the message on the back talks about the weather.

It reads:

“Dear Mr. Eidmans,

Many thanks for p.c, glad you are having ripping weather. This is ideal walking weather I should think. I’ve charmed the weather for the rest of your stay.

Yours, C.E. Davison”

Behind the Scenes…Chandeliers Print

Friday, February 8, 2013

chand final2

Chandeliers is the first fabric design created by Sharyn Storrier Lyneham for EDIT. The print originated from a passion for over the top chandeliers in vast spaces. When designing this fabric, she wanted to create an ad hoc layout to mirror that of a photo album. When the large version of chandeliers is applied to furniture, the images become wonderfully abstract. Chandeliers remains a popular print with our customers and designers.

 

The fabric comes in small, medium and large images in the following fabrics:

Hemp, $240/m                        Cotton Drill, $170/m                       Cotton Canvas, $160/m

Linen , $210/m                        Silk, $210/m

Inspirational People…Dries Van Noten and Gert Voorjans

dries

EDIT has always loved Dries Van Noten’s brave take on pattern and mixed design that all magically come together. Gert Voorjans’ work shows us how wit and irreverence can work so wonderfully in interiors.

 

“A designer is like a sponge. Just living, over the years, you see pictures, you watch movies, you read books, you see people walking on the street, you see different countries while traveling. This is all water you keep inside of you and when you design you simply squeeze the sponge. Whatever comes out is a kind of melange, a mixture of impressions you’ve acquired over the years.” – Dries Van Noten

“I like strange objects, excessive proportions, monstrosities too. You shouldn’t take interior design too seriously.” – Gert Voorjans

 Gert Voorjans is a Belgian interior architect and decorator, and the creative force behind Dries Van Noten’s flagship stores. His eclectic style complements Van Noten’s collections to create unique retail experiences.

 His book Interior Life beautifully documents his body of work.

Inspirational People…Joan Miró

Friday, February 1, 2013

miro work

Catalonian artist Joan Miró created works in a magical childlike style. We adore his process of transforming pieces of discarded timber and rock into fantastical sculptures decorated with dreamy animal like imagery, moons and stars. The Joan Miró Foundation is a great source of inspiration and one of our favourite museums to visit when in Barcelona.
