Lauren Tennenbaum of the riotously creative INDECOROUS TASTE is one amongst many out there in the blogging world, uh well- maybe the world- certainly the world beyond the one she is creating with her painted rooms. Lauren's rooms are Moody (my favourites) ,Romantic, Sparkling. Full of reds, full flourishes-full of Baroque-with her must have touches of funk- the rooms feel well worn but very alive- no dour dust- unless it is pixie dust.
She has fixations- this one.
witness One fetish...
for shoes (are all her own creations)
I told you-
But Look at this-
This is what intrigues Me, what brings Me to her posts, sends me back to them again -to scrutinize, applaud.
It is Lauren's ability to take her decorative painting and then design a moody room that- for instance this tapestry (painted) is perfect.
This You may wonder, well So?
Well, So-It is unusual.
What designers today do you know that are painting the walls for the rooms they are designing? There are those in past that have done so- the most famous I think must be the incomparable RENZO MONGIARDINO.
It is a truth: Those that decorate- design do not, or should I say- can not paint. Yes, there will be Painters out for Me- but Decorative Painters do not decorate-can not decorate.
It does not follow-
Do not try to convince me otherwise!
but- well, there is Lauren Tennenbaum.
I couldn't wait to ask Lauren some questions. Her own blog has such a lot of information about her & her work.
But what really makes her Louboutins skip a beat on the cobbles?
