Wednesday Vignette – mid-century, mahogany, and horses

Visited a new client the other day. It was a mid-century home with the most amazing mahogany siding. On the step up to a breezeway, were a pair of old Chinese horses, guarding the entry. I thought it was the most striking juxtaposition – so I thought I would add it to the Wednesday Vignette over on my other blog. You are welcome to join in too! It’s easy! Just post a photo of something that inspires you, or strikes your fancy. 🙂



About annamadeit

Born and raised in Sweden, my aesthetics and outlook on life are strongly shaped by a culture rich in history and tradition. I care a great deal about environmental responsibility, and my aesthetic reflects the visually clean, functional practicality and sustainable solutions that are the hallmarks of modern Scandinavia. I was trained as an architect at the University of Cincinnati and as a color specialist at the Scandinavian Colour Institute in Stockholm. I'm obsessed with plants and gardens, and aim to take my skill set a step further by designing gardens as well as interiors. As someone so aptly said: " Architecture is the skin that separates the exterior from the interior". So true - you can't successfully focus on one without incorporating the other. I'm also an avid cook, and I love to ski. In addition, I put time and efforts into trying to rectify things that I feel are wrong in my immediate community. As you will see, The Creative Flux will touch on all these things, and more. For sure, it's all over the map, but then again - so am I! Welcome to my blog!
