Silhouette Splendor

The Now: Silhouette Splendor

Silhouette Splendor

I've always had a soft spot for silhouettes, after all, my mom has been collecting them for years.  But now I'm turning into some what of a junkie, as we're seeing silhouettes pop up EVERYWHERE in the design world.  Love how such a classic look has become so incredibly on-trend.  My favorite way to see them is when paired with modern surroundings.  Such a unique look.

How unbelievably gorge is this vignette?  I love
the pale blue walls and ornate molding.  The silhouettes
are completely perfectly placed, too.  Drool.

Another example of a simply beautiful use of vignettes
(and pink walls, a modern sofa, an amaz black hide, etc., etc. etc.).
This screams E to me... E, am I right?
My personal favorite thing about this vignette is that the frames are from Ikea!
I've seen those frames 1,000 times in the store and have always wondered what
I could use them for.  Now I know!

E and I have been crazy over Carter Kustera for Jonathan Adler
for some time now.  Only problem is that one of these originals
will set you back about 8 hundy, gulp.
 Well, our very own E was to the rescue.. she found a way to
create her own (and in my mind even more amazing) silhouettes
of her cat, Brother, and dog, Pickles! (Say E, Christmas is coming soon
and little Henry could really use a portrait)

Yum, yum, yum.  Look at these adorable silhouette pillows
in the perfect shade of blue.  Looks perfect against the yellow sofa.
No wonder why this was originally featured in Domino

I adore the black and whites against the purple background
Oh, and my fingers are crossed that these are actual silhouettes 
of this person's family & pets... too cute

As I mentioned, my mom has been collecting silhouettes
for years, and she loves mounting them within frames.
Good job momma!

If you're not feeling crafty (or if you don't have a crafty friend like E), I love the work by Cut Arts.  Simply email them your photo, and they'll create a custom silhouette for you starting at $25 for a 5x7. And btw, their largest size - 18x24 - is only $150, so I'd say it's a pretty good deal!

Their work was featured in the Kips Bay Designer Show House in 2005... love!
