Lately I've been crazy about orange. Perhaps it's the arrival of summer that makes me want to add touches of color to my decor. Orange is such a great color. It's warm, cheerful and vibrant. I was excited to acquire some orange pieces this past month!
I flipped when I found this pair of mid century Asian figural lamps. The pale tangerine shades were the icing on the cake. What a great addition for a Hollywood Regency room. Just that extra pop of color adds the perfect touch to these lamps!
I fell in love with this vintage ballroom dancer oil painting. So cheerful with the brightly-colored gowns.
The orange cover of this vintage classic, Breakfast at Tiffany's, could add just a pop of color on a shelf or coffee table. Just like Hermes boxes. I have a few of them in my bedroom, and that little burst of orange lightens up a drab space.
I am crazy for masculine type of pieces. Lighting, mirrors and old desk accessories, I'm getting more and more into unusual pieces. This early standing shaving mirror would look perfect in a bathroom or corner of a bedroom. I have never seen one like it before and was thrilled to find it!
If you've been to my website, I am a big fan of globes. I had never seen a globe like this before. Globes coated with slating material were produced in the 19th and early 20th centuries as educational aids for the study of geography. Students practiced drawing maps in chalk on the surface. So unusual.
And this globe thrills me. It's a French glass globe. Never seen a glass globe before. It's going to hard to part with it!
Another fun find was this lyre-shaped gilt wood mirror. The glass is convex with an old, cloudy patina. Just the way I like them!
This old English office sign would look great on my desk, if only I had the space. That's the problem with selling antiques. You don't want to part with anything!
