I really tried to get a shot of these back painted glass spheres that would make you as excited as I am about their lustrous colours.

This is a piece of art which serves no purpose other than to make you adore its beauty and respect the buyer’s exquisite taste.

What a great Father’s Day gift for the man who has (almost) everything.

Choose Organic for your Tabletop

Porcelain Flower Diffusers

Geranium Leaf Bowls

The other day I heard yet another decorating “rule”.  This one says every tablescape should have at least one thing that’s organic on it (and they don’t mean produce).  I take it the rule means “characteristic of, pertaining to, or derived from living organisms”.  Based on this definition I think you are pretty safe with anything that represents natural plants or organisms and items made from a natural substance (wood, marble etc) .

As I look around Glam Vintage & Moderne I see that Richard has actually done this probably subconsciously because I know he would scoff at this new rule gleaned from a home decorating show.  Including something organic is almost unavoidable.

Popular objets d’art are pheasants, coral, artichokes, leaves, flowers, and anything made of natural materials like wood, iron and marble. I’d say it’s pretty hard not to conform.

Console Dressing

Wood Carving on Stand

Tired of the symmetrical lamps often used to add height to a console tablescape?  Me too!  How about that vase of dusty flowers?  Too often we tend to ignore the fact that our silk foliage is “simply wiltin’ on the vine”.

Tall “objets d’art” that help the eye travel above the console to the wall or backdrop can be difficult to find so we opt for the ubiquitous lamps and vases.  This wood sculpture on a stand works to create this higher level and its spherical shape fills the space horizontally.  The pair of funky Ibiza lanterns below frame a contemporary space.
