home inspiration: pretty scary

If I ever decided to open a tattoo studio, I would want it to look like this. Apparently Brooklyn based Scott Campbell felt the same way because he did and it does. Though I also love the idea of using near clashing themes placed side by side in a home too.  I like, for instance, how the softness of the chaise brings out all the soft curving lines in the work above, and how, alternately, the artwork adds an edge to the otherwise prim chaise. Everything here is working to create a balance between hard and soft.

Awww! I have two tattoos myself and I've always wanted getting another one. I would die for a tattoo shop and get a nice ink on my body!!! Lovely post:D

ps; you must be soo excited about Target. I was so happy when I heard the news opening, then I had to move to FL. Can't wait to move back next year!!!

JJ: I had forgotten that! I'm must have subconsciously picked that particular photo just for you.

maki: I wouldn't mind going there too. It's definitely the best looking tattoo parlor I've ever seen. And yes, I am pleased about Target opening. It's one of the places I frequented before moving here, and I've missed all their GO! International Collections. However, I must admit their absence has been good on my wallet and is forcing me to be more creative in my home decor.
