Inspired by Elizabeth Taylor

after elizabeth taylor passed away, i was struck by her beauty and her flare for all things f-a-ancy.  so i thought i would shout out to the gods and to the icon herself by designing a mood board that highlighted that fanciful-ness and gave props to her role as cleopatra.  this exercise in design stretched my brain to its limits, but here it is …   just so you know, i created this right after she passed away but i forgot to share it … probably because i couldn’t find curtains that made me happy. oh well. so this room has high-gloss black walls with gold, deep purple, and orange accent furniture. the accessories are crystal and gold and all around blingin’. the fabrics are rich and luxurious … they are all interesting and unique. the art on the wall is a reflection of her beauty.

and the curtains … well the curtains are the bane of my existence, but they would probably be custom-made to mimic something like this shawl.

velvet burnout. peacock. yum.

 i would probably, however,  make the white background black or deep gray or deep dark plum or gold and let the only white be the peacock feathers.

yep, that would make me happy.

oh, and don’t go expecting to know where all this stuff came from. i don’t remember.

like i said i created this in march. my brain doesn’t think that far back.

y’all have a good day.

cheers.
