KateSpadeNY recently tweeted, "We'd be wearing #popartpink upon arrival to this storefront if we were still at @katespadebrasil." And really, who wouldn't be inspired to wear pop-art pink when presented with the gorgeous décor and color scheme of the store? Inspired by this sweet tweet, I had to round up some fantastic pink decorating elements that reflected the spirit and color of the store.
I'm dying to add this ridiculously pretty Lacquered Six-Drawer Commode (contact dealer for price). This '50s era piece has nickel-plated drawer handles in the style of Paul Frankl, an art deco furniture designer and maker, architect, painter, and writer. If the unusual drawer handles don't sell you on this piece, then the bright lacquer finishing definitely will. As far as I'm concerned, if you're outfitting a stylish, feminine bedroom, this piece is a must.
Another pink piece I'm coveting is this Schiaparelli Fragrance “Shocking” Illustration by Marcel Vertes. From 1938, this pigmented archival print of the original gouache illustration by Marcel Vertes for the Schiaparelli Fragrance "Shocking" features the words "Shocking" and "Schiaparelli" rendered as sky writing with two winged putti embracing and bound at the feet with a fabric tie. The signature torso-shaped, Dali-designed bottleis is also clearly depicted in the advertisement. Schiaparelli used this rendering for European and American advertising campaigns in the early 1950s. The piece is signed by the artist with his signature V. Vertes, an Academy Award-winning artist, is notable for his murals at the Carlyle Hotel in New York, among other works. Not into the vintage pieces I've picked out here? Then maybe these contemporary finds will catch your eye.
