The Charm of "Cameos"......

Saturday, February 7, 2009

Look at this amazing wallpaper!.....


Taking a small break from packing & cleaning, & the whole process of moving,.... I decided to go "on-line" to "Country Living Magazine's" website .....I came across this amazing article all about the most charming "silhouette art". Have you seen it?....Even though it's popularity has never reached what it once was, the "cameo" has, & continues to make a strong design presence in fashion as well as interior design. Country Living has spotlighted a few of the many ways cameos can be integrated into our homes & wardrobes! A huge "fan" of silhouettes already, I found this article not only beautifully presented, but one that inspired me to take some of their ideas & possibly add a "bit of cameo" in our new house!......maybe you should too?.....If you haven't had a chance to read this lovely article please do....I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I did!

A "modern take" on the "cameo".....

"Classic & beautiful".....


A little "cupboard" & a little "collection".....

Could a more exquisite "arrangement" exist?.....not in my mind!
Wishing you all a delightful weekend!!!.......Heidi XO

I also enjoyed that Country Living article. I have some silhouettes of my self and my brother throughout the years from a local artist from our own Minnesota State Fair. I think I'll dig those out and incorporate those into my decor this spring. Thanks for the inspiration. ~ Robyn

This is so pretty, thanks for sharing! I don't get Country Living (or ever read it anyway) so I never would have seen this.

I love cameos too, and am going to check out the article online if possible. Thanks!!

I have always loved silhouettes. That grouping looks so grand. Good job taking a break!! Hope all is going well.

I love, love, love cameos! I have a small collection of them that I never wear any more since I lost a favorite one :(

Silhouettes, too are special to me. I should do some of my grandsons while they're here. ::Jill

Heidi, I've been thinking about you, and I hope the move is going well.

I love cameos and silhouettes. In fact, I have some silhouettes that I need to have reframed because I have changed my mind about where I am going to hang them. I put them in the closet while I was changing things, and I need to get them out to remind me. Out of sight, out of mind. ;-)

Love it!

Did you send out the swap partners? Just checking!

These are wonderful! Seeing the little gold silhouette in the "Classic and Beautiful" picture instantly brought memories of one of my Mimi's charm bracelets. Made of double silver links, it held a silver silhouette representing each of her grandchildren. Now that I've just become a grandmother I plan to pick up that tradition and start a "cameo" bracelet of my own. Thanks for the post.

Very beautiful. I love silhouettes. I also love Country Living.
You have a beautiful blog.

I love the cameos... my grandma gave one to me when I was very young and I've loved them ever since!
