Part – 2 Decorating with Gold .
Don’t you think that we all need a little bling in our lives? The Romantic Victorians really knew how to add bling into their everyday life. Late Winter can really get very dull and boring as we wait for the first signs of Spring.
I guess that is why I have started to add some lovely sparkle into my little nest. As I looked around my home I realized that the gold and sparkle was already there in some small places.
Take a look.
This wonderful tarnished silver adds a soft glow and reflects the light ever so lovely.
I just finished this beautiful ornament for my shop when my son spied. He and my DIL are redecorating their master bedroom with touches of gold. So, know it hangs above their closet door and adds beautiful sparkle in an ornate way.
The lovely gold tone box with the Harlequin design certainly adds a beautiful look.
As I browsed through my nest I spotted a little bling in my grandmothers wedding china, as well as a lovely gold trim on the blue and white transfer jar.
Adding some gold tone tools on my work bench certainly gives a romantic feel, the sparkle makes me smile, especially when I spend a lot of time working there.
Here are some lovely gold touches on small frames. I refinsihed the frame of the mirror that was originally gold to bring just a touch of the gold frame. I don’t want the bling to take over in my decorating, I only want a touch.
This vignette has a lovely shine through the patina of a tarnished platter, the books hold their own with the beautiful gold pages.
How do you add a little bling into your nest?
