In The Mood For New | Valentina Cirasola |Designer

Lips mini sofa by Studio 65 Vitra

I am in the mood for something new, and craving something especially red. Actually, this desire didn’t come with the brand new year, I have been wanting to redecorate parts of my home for a while now. I have been looking and searching, but everything out there is so dull, squared, boxed… I couldn’t find anything extravagant for a long time until I stumbled on this lips mini sofa by Studio 65 Vitra. It is a reproduction of Salvador Dali’s lip sofa kept in his house now a museum.

The next thing I spotted was this hippy wallpaper to accentuate the wall behind the red lips sofa and make it come alive. All hippy expressions are coming back again. Sixty years later, people are still looking for sunshine in their lives, want to be closer to nature, feel peaceful in the positive cosmic energy, and want to defy drabby interiors. Nothing has changed in sixty years, but why humans have not found that balance with nature, cosmic forces, and inner peace yet?

I soon realized the lips sofa is affordable but very small and the wallpaper, although I like it very much, would cause many extra changes to the surrounding décor. Changing one item often creates a domino effect and everything around will soon need to be changed, something I am not ready to tackle now and I don’t want to either, I still like my interior décor made of classic, eclectic, and fantasy expressions.

There is one thing in my trade that has been proven so right:
“Before you start anything, learn how to finish it.” DIY people often don’t know what a project entails and end up learning from their mistakes. I know where I want to go with the new loveseat, the vignette I want to create will be a bit French classic, end of the 1900s style.

Well, since the lips sofa doesn’t have the right measurements for my space, I opted for something else, just as pretty. A purple tufted loveseat that fits well with the rest of the décor and nothing else needs to change.

Two new lamps will come into this new play and a nice vignette will be recreated. I will post pictures when everything arrives and will be put together my way. Until then, if any of you is up to a room make-over and needs help, I am here for any question, ready to give you a helping hand. Ciao.

    Love all the decor ideas, especially the wallpaper! Yes, definitely the type of paper one should start with a new room where I’d start with choosing the wall and the floor treatments and build around. But that paper would make a fab statement wall! Love the Dali lips too! 🙂
