By the way, this post is NOT SPONSORED. I make these kinds of selections out of fun and for sharing the creativity of great designers, to inspire and give decorative ideas. Some articles I share to talk about are very creative, unusual, sometimes near the edge of craziness, but I find them inspiring and diverting! This is ART. Some of them you may like, some other - not so much.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” as they say, so you are free to interpret beauty as you desire. There are no limitations or rules when it comes to ART, and DESIGN is a sector closely related to it.
