Style Imitating Art-Taking Style from a Roma Caravan

Hello and welcome to a new round of Style Imitating Art.

Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey, Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge, and me. Style Imitating Art challenges us to draw style inspiration from pieces of art. Every other Monday one of us selects an inspirational image and we each post the image on our blogs. The following Monday we share our art-inspired outfits. The following Wednesday, the curator shares all of the submissions on her blog.

This Week’s Curator

This round is created by Shelbee.

Shelbee’spick was inspired by her recent living room makeover. She painted my fireplace and accent wall in a color called Gypsy Teal and it sent her searching for gypsy-inspired home decor ideas. In my search, I came upon the Gypsy Vardos. Romani travelers began living in these ornate horse-drawn wagons around 1850 and recently they have been making a comeback as micro homes. The vardos were elaborately decorated with ornate hand carvings and paintings that incorporated traditional Romani symbols. 

Although Shelbee has picked this green one, she mentioned that any of the Vardos wagons could be used for inspiration and gave us some links if we wanted to research them ourselves.

I hope these gorgeous wagons inspire something beautiful and see you next week.
