Something About those Bows and Arrows


Maybe it's Edgerton's teepee, maybe it's the arrows?  Not sure what it is I am loving about the look, but I did just pull the coolest arrow grass cloth paper for another client and booked our Spring Break vacation to Arizona !!  I couldn't sleep the other night and watched back to back episodes of Tree House Masters where Pete Nelson had the most fabulous teepee placed on the deck of one of his client's Tree House.  Loved !  Anyway - I'm on a teepee and arrow kick.

This space (designed by fabulous LA designer Amber Lewis) has a similar feel to a project I am working on in Miami to install in March. . .

We plan to keep the space sophisticated with a black and white look then pop it with a little color.

Used the coolest brass arrows in Edgerton's playroom (here) creating a pattern on the wall.

tipi[1] (also tepee[2] or teepee[3][4]) is a conical tent, traditionally made of animal skins upon wooden poles. A tipi is distinguished from other conical tents by the smoke flaps at the top of the structure.[5][6][7] Historically, the tipi was designed and largely used by Indigenous people of the Plains in the Great Plains and Canadian Prairies of North America.[8][9][10] Tipi lodges are still in use by these peoples, though now primarily for ceremonial purposes.

Take a look at a few of my favorite teepee installations - all from my Pinterest  files . . .

How about the real thing - so long as it's a glam teepee !
