While we are away at H.P.F.M. I thought I'd share a few blasts from the past. Enjoy. We'll catch up when we get back.
Rocking the Whimisical Gothic Muse in Decorating
When I was researching Tim Burton Muse week in home décor, I didn’t know what I would find in the Googlesphere. Didn’t really know what I wanted to find, but I knew it wasn’t Halloween, or Vampire or even too spooky – just atmospheric, a little playful, but with gothic pattern and old velvets and curtains, a somber color pallet, a little sweetness, a little romantic decrepitude, a little melancholy…
Where I ended up from my research was 3 Burtonesque styles: Traditional Gothic, Gothic Modern, and Fantastical. Other ways include Alice (see our Alice Muse week) or Spooky Circus (as in Big Fish) inspired, but I couldn’t find much on the Circus-way. Maybe a muse for another day…
It’s been a fun week of Burton-ing. As we’ve said, we love his work and that he rocks the method designer with his clothes and his art in sync.
Hope you enjoy! Braxton

|Very cool room|
|Great silver story here. Romantic|
|Great juxt of old/nw with B/W story and silver|
|Bold Burtonesque stipes, ghost chair and mirrored table rocks!|
|Very dramatic and theatrical|
|Silver and gray bold stiped wallpaper and dark floors look great.|
|Red and White bold stripes also work, especially with dark wood floor and furniture|
|A little too theatrical and bloody, but cool|
|Dig the full moon. Nice B/W and grey story|
|Love the poison green chaise in this B/W room - really makes a statement!|
Now for a dose of the Fantastical Burton Story...
|See some colorfull playfullness here|
