Smitten | Trad Home Vignette

Can we just discuss the amazingness that is Trad Home magazine?  I mean, really. My brain is about to explode due to inspiration overload.  I could gush on and on about everything I love but instead I'll just share the one image I found most inspiring.  I'm absolutely head-over-heels in love with this elegant carved desk and faux bamboo chair vignette designed by Lauren Gold and Sasha Adler. This is the perfect example of how to mix pieces from different eras and regions — a French Maison Jansen brass chair and Swedish silver lamps — to create a layered look.  The pair of lamps flanking the craved wood desk add symmetry and make these modern pieces feel more traditional. The stack of old books, framed picture, mint julep cup filled with ranunculus (my favorite), and marble obelisk add another layer to the space and give it a sense of personality and history.  Seriously Smitten
I bought this chair at Jayson Home and Garden last year and was contemplating painting it a high gloss black, now, I'm thinking it needs a touch of gold!
