Nature Meets Design: The Jellyfish

Nature has a strong influence on the way I design, because of its constant change and unexpected beauty. The Jellyfish Cotylorhiza is a magnificent creature. Its burst of color is both beautiful and unexpected. As it sits just beneath the surface of the Mar Menor coastal lagoon, it captures the magnificent light of the sunrise. As beautiful as it may look, the Jellyfish Cotylorhiza can give you a nasty bite. The photographer has beautifully curved the surface of the water as to mirror the curve of the Jellyfish's body. (BELOW) Whether you buy these items or ones at a cheaper cost, the key to recreating the style of the jellyfish in your home is to bring in purple and different shapes. Purple can be brought in through rugs, furniture and paint. Different shapes can be brought in through tabletops, sculptures and lighting. The impeccable 1960s, purple Vistosi discs chandelier is from Venfield. It resembles the tentacles of the Jellyfish. The purple 1980s Vladimir Kagan swivel  armchair is from Talisman. The curved form of the armchair resembles the curve of the purple tip of the Jellyfish's tentacles.  The pair of Beranek 1970s glass vases is from Mary Ann Lembo. The unique form of the vases resembles both the movement of the water and Jellyfish. The mid 20th century Scandinavian rug is from Nazmiyal. The rug and Jellyfish posse similar colors. What do you love about these pieces? You can add as little or as much to your space as you want. Don't follow rules, just do.
