I am absolutely head over heels giddy for anything gilded. And I mean anything! Gold, in all varying tones, is consistently intermingled in every room of my house. I often associate gilded gold with old Hollywood glamour – even the slightest touch in the most contemporary room can be stunning.
Alot of my favorite things, whether gilded in gold or not, are found in antique shops. My grandmother and I spend every Sunday afternoon antiquing. While she has a tendency to go for the dolls and figurines, I gravitate towards baroque, gold, and romantic – she refers to my taste as ‘gaudy’, a word that makes me cringe! (I think she just enjoys teasing me!)
Most of the pieces I find go home with promises of a better life, or shall I say, a more glamorous life. Much more glamorous! New paint, new upholstery, new purpose. Stay tuned …or else! Juussstt kidding! But, seriously, good times are inevitable if you come back! So do it.
