two lovely things

{two lovely things}: whether elegant yet striking with a 1960′s abstract expressionist painting by al held hung above a louis xiv gilded settee luxuriously upholstered in belgian linen, or beautifully ornate with a stunning 2oth century gilded console perfectly paired with a bronze and crystal chandelier and orchids, there is nothing quite like crisp white with a touch of black, intermingled with the warmth of wood, and, most certainly, a touch of gold . . .

{p.s.} more two lovely things

Well, of course I adore both photos! The designer, C. Renea Abbott of Shabby Slips Houston, has some other lovely gilded pieces on her website. Its amazing how that simple palate, balanced by glint and jazzed up by a bit of black, really excites! Have a wonderful weekend, Trish
