A Burst of Excitement!

Posted by on Nov 17, 2009 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

You can always add a little oomph to your decor with a lively starburst motif. Like the wheels on a car, these radial delights can really move a design scheme along. This motif can be found in nature in the form of flowers, snowflakes, sun rays, tumbleweeds, and outer space. The starburst reached its pinnacle in the 1960′s when the space program inspired the atomic age. Designers responded to this new frontier by interpreting it’s wonders into objects for the home.
