Quilt Styled

t

Art forms are so magical, especially when they are inspired due to adversities. Like the quilts from the yesteryears came about in the New World (also known as industrial kickstart times) when migration to USA was rampant. As people migrated in large numbers, and due to shortage of textiles and warm clothes, the ladies of the house used all that they could find to put together cloth materials to keep their families warm. Thus, the innovation of the quilted patterns, which are now considered as collectible art forms even placed in museums.

The beauty of quilted art is that at first sight, they are warm to look at and colorful. Pretty little colorful patterns sewn together to jump under them and cozy up.

How about though, using this warm by your bedside, lit prettily at night keeping you in a good mood, and promising sweet dreams? A dream catcher on top of the bed can add to perfection.

Inspired by the brightness of this art and it’s history, it was so much fun to make this lamp fwitenglish quiltedfrom glass bottles.

A crazy mix of colors, all promising a gallant atmosphere, adding to that hint of “cozy” touch to your everyday living. Simplified in designs to bring in love, balance, and harmony. Cozy is definitely not restricted to just couches and quilts.

Reuse, Recycle, Redecorate – Plastic!! Originally inspired!

In my previous blog, I shared a photo of a lady who converted her entire house exterior into a fabulous hippie design using plastic bottle caps and nails! So classic!

Using her art as inspiration, I made my own plastic home decoration. Simple yet hippie, I made some divider curtains out of plastic bottles. Find picture below:

For some reason2015-06-28 23.08.44, I love black and white as a combination for dividers. I think they add such an oomph to the existing walls. My house has bright colorful walls in new leaf green, eggplant purple, and prussian blue. So this combination was an absolute hit!! I will try and post more pictures.

You can use oil paint or lacquer paint for this. I used transparent pet bottles so as to get the absolute black and white effect, which failed somewhat in the green sprite bottles.

The best part of these curtains is that they are reused plastic, so definitely light, easy to clean, easy to hang, and the sunlight makes this whole arrangement glow beautifully!

I would be delighted to make you a collection, with colors of your choice!  We take international orders, so if you are in the far West, we can still ship them to you!

Do let me know how you liked these! Your feedback is absolutely awaited. Also, if you have any of your own plastic recycled decor, do share in the comments section.
