Elements Of Surprise | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

It’s one of those days in California, the sun is high, the air is fizzy, mid-morning coffee in a fashionable area with business associates. Women of leisure are out shopping and carrying shopping bags bigger than their size.
Window shopping is one of my favorite activities when I am in those parts, but I am always moving fast from window to window, perhaps because merchandise is the same everywhere and not much out there interests me.

Here fashion is all about black clothes. We can still feel the influence of Steve Jobs, dressed in his uniform: jeans, black t-shirt and black sneakers. It feels to me as everyone is mourning their own life.
I am sorry to complain about black all the time, but it isn’t the only color available and I will not allow anyone to tell me I need to wear the “black  California uniform” 24/7. If it makes them happy, black is the color for them.

I was walking mindlessly, suddenly something struck me in Anthropologie.
To attract people’s attention, the visual department has designed these flowers all made with paper price tags, muffins paper cups and vegetable twist ties, you know the type we use at grocery stores to seal a plastic bag full of fruit or vegetable.
The “wow” effect was there and the curiosity too.

I entered the store and spent an hour studying store display, flowers arrangements and roaming around merchandise. This store is ready with new colors, as it is always attentive to market demand.

The paper roses made with price tags reflect the warm mood and emotional feeling of 2016 fall. We just need new vibrations in new color combinations, which are visible in the paper price tags’ treatment.
All those subtle and powdery colors is an indication of what we will wear in the next fall and winter.
Human creativity has no limits. Ciao,
Valentina
