Reem Acra, a native of Beirut, Lebanon, is a fashion designer living and working in America. Known for her bridal and evening wear, her SS14 collection was inspired by disco glamour and the nightlife.
For this design collage, I imagined a VIP room of an elite nightclub and pulled inspiration from the colors of Acra’s SS14 collection. I also decided to add some unusual pieces that you may not expect to see in just any room.
3. One of my favorite pieces of design include the Les Lalanne desk called Secrétair Deuxième Rhinoceros. There is one currently on display at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. This desk has also been shown as a bar cart. I’d “work” from it and then promptly pull my bottle(s) of wine as soon as I’m done “working”.
6. I have a friend who has an antique tuba sitting in the corner of his room, minding it’s own business. My nosy self had to walk over and take a closer look because it’s such a completely cool and unexpected element to have in a room. He got the tuba from an auction but you can find one on Ebay.com.
7. While the dress is brassy and all kinds of sassy, there is a little bit of antique brass in the sequins as well (which tends to be darker, more grey version of a bright brass color). I wanted to pull those small details out through the Mason Wide Pendant from Arteriors Home. This pendant light ties the entire room together!
What do you think? We’d certainly love to hear your thoughts.
Don’t forget to check back tomorrow to see another design collage inspired by the runway!
