BEEN THERE DONE THAT
WHAT'S OLD IS NEW AGAIN
After reviewing the latest issues of the shelter publications
I've decided that everybody's doing it again, and again, and again.
Much of what is new to some is all too familiar to others.
All that's required is the ability to reinterpret the past for the present.
Like the rooms above.
On left is mid-century modern a la Mondrian circa 1957.
Whereas to the right is Erik Espinosa's 2019 update on square one.
Drama was a key element in any Dorothy Draper design.
Her sketch (above left) for a Waikiki Hilton Project was done on the spot.
It's mix of blues, yellows, with a touch of coral still charms.
John Fondas recently used the same palate for a Palm Beach home (right).
And half a century later -
China Seas classic Lyford Trellis paper from Quadrille
still takes us to a better and tres chic place.
Fortunately color and pattern are fashionable one again.
Yet few are brave enough to go where others have thread before.
However while you may not swath your bed in floral finery -
a strategic use of a bold print can still make a statement.
Toledo & Geller's playful mix of modern neutrals
against a bold retro wallpaper (above right) proves that
MORE is still AMAZING.
Some things last forever such as Billy Baldwin's blue notes show at left.
His treatment for advertising pioneer Mary Wells Lawrence's
upper east side apartment is still fresh fifty years later.
Denim mixed with a stripes, antiques, and modern art deliver WOW.
Schumacher recently reintroduced a collection of seventies classics (right).
A perfect mix of abstracts, geometrics, florals, and exotica.
Fortunately elegance never goes out of style.
BACK TO THE FUTURE
You don't have to hop in a time machine to get the best of times past.
At C+V HOME we've got a plethora of oldies but goodies.
All that are on-trend and ready for the picking.
Or you can buy something new that wants to be old.
