Wallflower Scarf from Orla Kiely
I have always loved scarves and fabric as wall art, hanging sarongs gathered from mine and my sisters travels way back in college. I’ve been taking a new interest in scarves since designing a young girl’s bedroom with an exotic flair and would love to pick up some new ones for my own collection. I have just the place for the Orla Kiely Wallflower Scarf above. Isn’t it beautiful?
It is so inspirational I immediately knew what I wanted to pair with it, so I set out to find just the right amount of gold, black and white. Yes, I’m still stuck on metal accents. I don’t think it’s going away any time soon since it started about 8 or 9 years ago and I just keep on thinking of more things to paint gold!
FLOS Spun Table Lamp from Utility Design
This was exactly the mix of mid-century style and Hollywood glam for me. Who could pass up an ultra shiny black lamp with such great lines as this one? The room I’m imagining is a sitting room off an entry, a casual place that doubles its use as my library and where I savor a cup of tea and catch up with friends. It needs to have some glamour I think.
Gold Leaf Round Table from One Kings Lane
I think I have a weakness for round, shiny side tables. I found about ten round, gold tables that I liked and finally chose this one because it is feminine without being over the top and simple and clean. When in doubt simple and clean often win at my house, because they will blend more seamlessly with multiple styles in an eclectic space without cluttering.
I know that was short and sweet, but I’ve been having a slow computer (they say slow as molasses, but I think i could have poured out 5 jars of the stuff in the 1 hour and 9 minutes it took to load the PH site today). Needless to say I have much more to add, like this Modern Classic Leather Bench from Modern Classic Home and Furniture. But my patience is thin and now there is not enough time to watch this beast of a computer think before I must leave for work. As they say, I’ll be back
