I recently went to see the revival of Guys of Dolls that just opened on Broadway. The classic musical features a wonderful score, a great cast and a pretty innovative set (go see it if you’re visiting the NYC area). While watching I found myself really loving the 1930’s glamour and wondering how I could bring that home in my own way. In other words not a major makeover but just a little something that sparkled. I love the stylistic shapes that mark art deco (for more on art deco style go to http://www.hgtv.com/home-improvement/moderncontemporary-architectural-style/index.html). And take a look at the detail of these costumes for another example of this style.
A quick browse through marketplace (http://marketplace.hgtv.com/) and I found these decidedly glamorous vases (for a very desirable price). So I can have a little touch of the style without breaking the bank.
What are the little things that you have which bring out the spirit of a design for you?
