“Wybaczcie. Życie stało się nie do zniesienia”

Wraz z Charles’em de Gaulle’em miała największy wpływ na życie Francuzów – twierdzi “Le Monde”. De Gaulle z kolei ją, jako jedyną, odznaczył Medalem Prezydenta Republiki. Sprzedała 170 milionów płyt i jako pierwsza w historii zdobyła platynową. Iolanda Gigliotti, czyli Dalida, równie piękna i utalentowana, co nieszczęśliwa. Przeżyła trzy samobójstwa byłych partnerów. 3 maja 1987 roku włożyła jedwabną piżamę, ułożyła włosy i zrobiła makijaż. Połknęła 120 tabletek i popiła whisky. Zostawiła kartkę: “Wybaczcie. Życie stało się nie do zniesienia”.

Mixed styles inspire Manalapan home decor

By city and shore By Charlyne Varkonyi Schaub
City & Shore Contributing Design Editor
Shannon Callahan and Rachel Ortiz, senior designers at Marc-Michaels Interior Design in Boca Raton and Winter Park, love mixing traditional furnishings with more modern art and accent pieces. National design magazines, including House Beautiful, Southern Living and Traditional Home, have featured the trend. (Search Houzz.com for more examples).
We asked Callahan and Ortiz to suggest ways to mix elements of past and future to create a hipper design, and this home in Manalapan illustrates how the mix can work.
Classic millwork and furnishings get an easy update here with contemporary painting, neutral upholstery and modern lamps with barrel shades. A pair of wooden, star-shaped accent tables provide a wow factor.
How to get the look at home
1. Mix traditional art with modern frames or use more contemporary art with traditional frames.
2. Use unique lighting to add contrast on a traditional console table. Or add a contemporary chandelier.
3. Get rid of the chintz and brocade and reupholster with a cleaner and more modern solid-color fabric.
4. If your room is too neutral, give it pizzazz with color. Make it pop with Kelly green or magenta throw pillows.
5. Don’t be afraid to add accent pieces, such as a contemporary coffee table or sculptural accent tables.
6. Replace the traditional rugs with a hip geometric or stylized design.

How not to overdo the tropical look at home

By city and shore By Charlyne Varkonyi Schaub
City & Shore Contributing Design Editor
Decorating with palm-tree motifs, bamboo and rattan are nothing new to us in South Florida. Sometimes, though, we go overboard with the theme.
The trick in the “New Tropical” is to pare down the look so it doesn’t resemble a Pirates of the Caribbean set. It should appear less kitschy, more refined and romantic.
Once again the trend is taking its cues from fashion runways. Marc Jacobs, Prado and Ungaro all featured tropical motifs in last fall’s shows. Saint Laurent used palm-tree fabric in backpacks and bomber jackets.
If you haven’t seen it yet, check out Carleton Varney’s use of his mentor Dorothy Draper’s Brazilliance banana-leaf pattern wallpaper in the hallway to the Polo Grill at The Colony on Palm Beach Island. Draper originally featured the wallpaper in her design of the Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. Elle Décor recently did a trend piece the magazine labeled “Rain-Forest Hues,” an homage to the same Brazilian jungle motifs that inspired Draper.
West Palm Beach designers Joseph Cortes and Kevin Marnell were ahead of the trend a few years ago in a home they designed on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. Walls were painted the distinctive orange of a Hermès box. Tropical pillows and art were played against white upholstery, which kept the room from appearing too dark. Cortes says they used the Hermès color walls “to make the room feel warm and cozy.”
“Always buy a plain sofa and change it up with new pillows,” celebrity interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard told Vogue. “It is just like buying a classic piece of clothing. You can certainly refresh it with a new bag and shoes.”

Splash of orange can add zest to a room

By city and shore By Charlyne Varkonyi Schaub
City & Shore Contributing Design Editor
It’s that time again, trend seekers. Orange may not be ubiquitous enough to be labeled “The New Black” (except on TV), but it is popping up on the fashion runways and in small flashes in our homes.
We’re not suggesting that you go full retro back to the ’70s with an orange sofa, but it can add zest to your home in small doses. Consider an orange throw, pillows with touches of orange and contemporary art with orange as one of the major colors. If you want to go really bold, add one accent chair, nothing larger.
Kravet, the high-end fabric company, is featuring several shades of orange in prints and solids. Pottery Barn features rugs, pillows and throws. Pinterest has several inspirational ideas and so does hgtv.com.
“True to its name, orange in all its incarnations has a Vitamin C effect on home decorating,” according to Traditional Home. “It refreshes and revitalizes. Whether it’s a rusty burnished tone or a cleaner tangerine, orange infuses any room’s design with energy.
“When coupled with crisp white and dove gray, a bright orange looks fresh and modern.”

Create place of refuge, meditation at home

By city and shore By Charlyne Varkonyi Schaub
City & Shore Contributing Design Editor
Even if you never took a yoga class, it’s likely a friend showed you how to yoga breathe when you’re stressed. Slowly take the breath in through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
If breathing isn’t enough, the next step could be meditation. You can meditate anywhere, but it’s best to set aside a space to cleanse your mind. The space can be a whole room or just a corner.
Here are suggestions from my own experience, artofliving.org and gaiam.com.
Find your special space. The best spot connects with nature – facing water, a garden or tropical trees such as bamboo. If you don’t have a good view, put up a poster or art of the outdoors.
Decorate an altar. This could be an altar table or two small tables. Decorate them with items such as a Buddha statue, a Tibetan Singing Bowl, crystals and a Tibetan Meditation Bell.
Create privacy. This isn’t mandatory, but some people prefer to be set apart to relax with a screen or curtain as a boundary.
Play the right music. You can ask your app to play meditation music or find your own at a specialty store, such as Crystal Garden, 2610 N. Federal Highway, Boynton Beach, 561-369-2836, thecrystalgarden.com. My favorites are David and Steve Gordon’s Music for Meditation Inner Stillness and Phil Thornton and Hossam Ramzy’s Eternal Egypt.
Feature low lighting. Put dimmers on your lighting to make the room feel more serene and peaceful. Or add soft quartz-crystal lighting.
Add pleasant smells. The variety of soothing smells is endless. Add an incense burner, scented oils
or candles.
Find a meditation pillow. I found a comfortable Dhyana Meditation Cushion that does the job better than other higher cushions I have tried. It’s available on amazon.com, but is shipped from Thailand so it takes about 14 days to arrive.
Unplug your electronic devices. This means no iPads, no cell phones. Turn everything off and put them in another room out of sight and out of hearing.

Greenery, ‘color of the year,’ is everywhere

By city and shore By Charlyne Varkonyi Schaub
City & Shore Contributing Design Editor
Ever wonder why the same colors show up in everything from fashion to home furnishings? The credit goes to the Pantone Color Institute, the color forecaster that sets the tone with its “color of the year.”
Say goodbye to Rose Quartz and Serenity; they are so 2016. This year’s color is Greenery, a yellow-green shade that represents the first days of spring when foliage comes back to life. “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone’s executive director. “Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”
Pantone also describes Greenery as nature’s neutral, a symbolic representation of what’s going on in our global culture.
We aren’t suggesting that you redo your whole home in Greenery, but the color can lend a good vibe to an otherwise neutral or dull room. The new offerings include everything from upholstery to accessories.
Here are some suggestions:
Taylor King, a fabric furniture manufacturer, shows how to subtly incorporate pillows and the Lollipop Ottoman in its Frou Frou Capri upholstery. Available through Brown’s Interior Design, 501 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton, 561-368-2703, brownsinteriors.com.
The Hug Chaise by Jessica Charles can present a pop of color and a sculptural presence to a great room with its S-shaped silhouette and nickel-finish frame. Available at Clive Daniel Home, 1351 NW Boca Raton Blvd., Boca Raton, 561-440-4663, clivedaniel.com.
Those looking for a subtler accent may opt for the Spot on Square’s Green Strands Credenza with sliding glass panels. It can be used in living rooms, nurseries and bedrooms and is made of 100 percent recycled material. Available online at laylagrayce.com.
Lighting also can give a pop of color. The Conical Pendant, which resembles the shape of a jellyfish, is made with hand-strewn beads. Available at Excentricities, 117 NE Fifth Ave., Delray Beach, 561-278-0886, excentricities.com.
Pantone makes it easy to figure out a color palette to use with its Greenery Color Pairings, 10 compatible colors. See pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2017.
