Christian Lacroix, the return

My first career choice was to become a fashion designer before going into interior design. I used to spend hours and hours as a teenager designing clothes, hats, shoes.....I came to realize with time that Fashion and Interior Design were fields that intertwined often feeding each other when it came to trends. My all time favourite designer Christian Lacroix served as a huge inspiration to what was to become a dream come true for me. Christian is from Camargues in the South of France and has always been known for his more theatrical approach to fashion design. He has incredible eye for colour, plays with textiles and forms like no other! He is a true creative genius. I am so happy to see he is making a come back into the Fashio design world! What a treat!!!
Enjoy!!

No artwork is too old or traditional to fit a more modern and contemporary home! Play with scale, and repetition of shapes! Dont forget to coordinate with your floors and ceiling colour as well:) Have fun

The amazing work of Candida Hofer

At Artform, we love looking and searching for the next piece of Artwork, photography or sculpture that will move us! Candida Hofer, Cologne, Germany-based photographer has brought back  historical settings to the forefront for all of us to enjoy again! The depth of her work, and play with colours make her photography whimsical!

Höfer began taking color photographs of interiors of public buildings, such as offices, banks, and waiting rooms, in 1979 while studying in Düsseldorf. Her breakthrough to fame came with a series of photographs showing guest workers in Germany, after which she concentrated on the subjects "Interiors", "Rooms" and "Zoological Gardens". Höfer specialises in large-format photographs of empty interiors and social spaces that capture the "psychology of social architecture". Her photographs are taken from a classic straight-on frontal angle or seek a diagonal in the composition.

She tends to shoot each actionless room from an elevated vantage point near one wall so that the far wall is centered within the resulting image. From her earliest creations, she has been interested in representing public spaces such as museums, libraries, national archives, or opera houses devoid of all human presence. Höfer’s imagery has consistently focused on these depopulated interiors since the 1980s. (Wikipedia)

Here are two rooms I have created around some of her great work.
Enjoy!
