Crystal Clear Chic On The Beach {Design File Thursday}

It all started with this chair.  It’s called a Ghost chair designed by famed designer Phillipe Starck.  I really like it and for me to like this style is a big move.  I mean I am really not a total modern girl but I do like touches of it.  I really do and this chair shouts modern out loud.  I remember seeing it some years ago and thought why would you want a clear chair?  What could this chair bring to your decor?  After doing my homework my thoughts are it brings crisp, clean lines with a touch of softness.  I would love to place one at a desk in a home office or in a corner with a nice pillow from Chloe and Olive.  I am such a fan of their pillows.

I also wanted to find a ghost chair that was incorporated in with some vintage design to show how it meshes well with a touch of the old.  I like how it’s used in the first picture with the old style desk along side a vintage modern chair.  The other picture depicts a cool crispy white theme with an old antique settee in the back.  I also love the wallpaper in the back it looks to have a flocked feel to it.

I think you’re beginning to watch my blogging style unfold of wanting to find some fashion to mix with a little home design.  So, I set out to find cool, beachy clothing with a clean, crisp translucent feel and it wasn’t hard.  My dear love of Calypso St. Barth had exactly what I was looking for.  The clothing matches the decor don’t you think?  I don’t think there is any other website that screams classy beach wear than Calypso St. Barth.  The only issue I have with them is I don’t have a pocketbook that holds the amount of cash needed to buy their sweet items.  I guess it’s back to saving.

Beautiful combinations! I love how elegant and classic these looks are. Also love the idea of mixing fashion and home design, especially when it comes to such a clean crisp palette. Thank you for the refreshing inspiration!
