    Vive La Différence – Tweety’s Modern Abode

    June 28, 2012

    A couple of weeks ago I was having a conversation with my friend holly from hvhinteriors. The premises of the discussion was our very apparent differences in our style and taste when it comes to interiors. Holly likes the more minimal, the more masculine and rather monochrome, with a little wood and concrete thrown in. I, on the other hand, am all about colour, bold patterns and funky and quirky designs. Quite different, would you agree?

    As we were chatting away and laughing about all of this, holly re-assured me that the new project she was about to unveil would be more my cup of tea. Yep, she was right! Holly has just launched her new project: the design chef, recipes for delicious interiors. Actually the interiors are rather delicious and as each one is inspired by food i now see plenty of colour and am happy:)

    With all this talk about taste differences I pondered: what kind of results would we obtain if each of us worked on the same ‘space’ simultaneously but separately? What kind of differences or similarities might be revealed? Further discussions were held and this post was born!

    So, what kind of ‘space’, who for? Do we choose a fictitious client? Male or female? One look around my office space and the victim was located.

    Meet tweety pie in his very own egg chair.

    Can you think of a better fictitious client? I certainly can’t.

    We felt that tweety pie, who clearly has such delectable taste, was ready for a modern abode to roam around freely. Yes?

    So, in the spirit of this post, we leave it up to you to guess who designed what….. hmmmm, tricky, n’est pas? Really?! Oh, and by the way, there’s no right or wrong, there’s just ‘different’.

    Vive la différence!
