Schlangen Serpents Snake 

There will be a renaissance of Egyptian design elements in fashion, accessories and interior design. As one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols, snakes remain as popular in art and design as they did back in ancient Egyptian times. What makes this creature so intriguing to mankind is its dual expression of good and evil, fertility and rebirth, poison and medicine. Get inspired! Curious? See more here

Icons - Marlon Brando, a Complicated Man

Marlon Brando

Interview with Marlon Brando
Conducted by James Grissom By Telephone 1990

Life will tear you apart and destroy you, 
each and every day. 
People are suffering and starving and dying; 
people are lying and cheating; 
resources are spread far too thin. 
We have to live, and we have to love. 
We can love in many ways, and I am really only capable, 
at times, of loving through my art, my work, so that’s what I should do. 
I have to learn to love others more fully. 
We have to love everything.
I think the world improves–the entire world–
when we appreciate a beautifully crafted sentence in a book; 
when we remember our mothers as a song plays; 
when we watch an actor giving his or her all to a scene. 
We can take this love, 
this incredible feeling of connection and gratitude, 
and we can share it with another person. 
I think this is how we can immediately 
heal the world and ourselves.

Interview with Marlon BrandoConducted by James GrissomBy Telephone 1991

We tolerate and we delay the inevitable pain 
of being human by various means, 
and the creation of art was the honorable route I chose. 
Others find a God, a spirit, a schedule of spiritual exercises 
to stave off the pain of being human. 
Others turn to drugs or sex or food, 
and I have made my way down that fleshly path. 
Dull the pain; deny the past; make the future bright 
with sweat and cum and shiny eyes of desire.
Eventually, we are made still--
by tragedy or age or both. 
We have to sit and think and reflect, 
and we have to face our humanity. 
It has always been there, this task, 
but we have pushed it away, tamped it down, 
covered it like Blanche's naked light bulb.
So here we are, facing our humanity. 

Where do we begin?

Trending - Oriental Blue for Interior Accents

Entrance hall - Milan Italy | House & Garden
Strong powerful colour shades can be a beautiful addition to a space, but knowing when to stop is key. Applying shades like oriental blues or 'Yve Klein' blue with experience and restraint can be elegant and polished, but go to far and you end up with vulgarity. Avoid so-called 'accent walls' and add your favorite colours with artworks.

The new trends and forecasts are all about the colour blue. The brighter the better! But limit yourself and invest in mostly long-lasting pieces that you love with just a sprinkle of 'now' items that can be easily edited in and out.
