How to add lucite to your world

As you already know from my previous posts such as black and white and silver, I always appreciate when fashion and interiors follow the same trend. In my world, the two certainly influence each other. Lucite has been popular in interiors and we are now seeing fashion designers create accessories in the material. Lucite, which is an acrylic resin, was created in the 30’s. Apartment Therapy has an interesting post on the history of lucite.

Lucite works in modern and traditional spaces. It adds a lightness and gleaming visual absence to the room. Here are some typical lucite items for the interiors.7a2f8c673fef8ea76f777c70d1ff9349

Lucite and this photograph remind me of hollywood glamour.

A great way to update your kitchen is to change your cabinet hardware to lucite.

I would also take the ocean view.

  1. Love love love it!! I had a lucite vanity when young and it was so cool- wish I had kept it but there was no room for it when I moved back then. I do have some lucite jewelry from awhile ago and shoes too. But, my favorite use of it is in the home. Great post!
