We are looking forward to completing our own bedroom this fall. A collection of vintage and antique textiles will be used throughout the room. A color way of burnt orange, plum and cinnabar infused with black, black and more black. This palette brings to mind spicy Marrakesh…Marrakesh in hell that is.
We have begun work on an elaborate cornice and drapery for behind the bed. A beautiful set of Victorian draperies in terra cotta, black and gold have waited patiently for months (years?) for just this project. The cornice will be one of our original fabrications. It will be encrusted with antique metal tassels, bits of chain mail and hand printed silk medallions. And of course, at center point an ornate goat head mask upon a gilded pelmet (in the ever popular Vlad the Impaler meets The Arabian Nights style….)
Let us not forget the eternal (infernal?) sleep, dear reader. Until next time, we bid you good night and sweet dreams.
To know the reason why
And I know you’ll understand
More when it’s your turn to die
Don’t believe the life you have
Will be the only one
You have to let your body sleep
To let your soul live on.
