Alison’s theme was life in a cave, and she came up with some pretty awesome things to make even the most hardcore house lover re-consider their dedication to four walls. Enjoy and thanks Alison!
“Caves come in all sizes and varieties. In this instance, I imagined myself in an airy crystal cave, full of stalactites, blue pools of water and blurry chemical-reacting lights, with none of that bothersome claustrophobia.”
How I’d Live
“Decorating the drippy dank of a cave might prove a challenge, but it’s one I’m willing to take on. Inspired by the intrepid cavemen and women that came before me, I went for an aesthetic that was equal parts warm and furry, balanced with primitive, minimal art and fixtures reminiscent of stalactites. And I had to get a big, fuzzy cat in there. ”
“My goal with this outfit is comfort and warmth: capes, more fur and a
vintage lantern for exploring. I’m no practical spelunker (yet). And yes, a
plush white knapsack won’t stay white for long in a cave, but a little grit
and grime makes the experience legit. It’s kinda like breaking in a new pair
of white Cons. ”
Books to dive into
” It’s natural to look to other
caves for inspiration, right? And the cave paintings of Lascaux are
mind-blowing. 17,000 years is an incredible lifespan for art that’s both
figurative and abstract. ”
