Last week BBCE came over to chat about “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern. In the book, everything in the circus from tents to costumes is black and white. The circus groupies who follow it from town to town also wear black and white, but they add red scarves to identify themselves.
I own a lot of black, white and red stuff, so it wasn’t hard for me to plan how I was going to decorate. (I totally had to reign myself in, though. It would have been very easy to turn my apartment into a circus tent.) My mom also let me borrow a couple of things of hers. I’m happy to say that everyone showed up wearing something black and white or red. 🙂 I love my book club!
Sorry those are kind of blurry. My camera gets sassy when I don’t use flash, and candlelight isn’t done justice if flash is used. I really hope the book is made into a movie so that I can see the sets and costumes brought to life. The Top 10 performance from Season 8 of So You Think You Can Dance has the perfect feel.
While I’m at it, let me give y’all a glimpse into the rest of my place. You’ve already seen my Creativity Corner, the quilt (black and white :)) on my bed and what the table looks like without all that stuff on it. Here are a few other spots:
I love my apartment and I choose furniture, art and decorations that stimulate me. You can’t be creative in a dull space, and no space with red furniture could ever be dull. 🙂 How have you decorated your place to spark your creativity? What items do you have that inspire you?
