Saturday Inspiration

Such a pretty vignette. I love all the gold with the pops of pink and blue velvet on the chair and stools. The use of Chinoiserie, as is often the case, adds a bit of whimsy to a fairly serious spot. I like the large gray cloisonne vase on top of the snakeskin boxes. Cloisonne is so underused and can be had for a song on Etsy, eBay, flea markets, and such. Pairs of small cloisonne vases are also very effective as shown below. In the photo above, I also love how the foo dogs have been placed a bit askew and with their back towards each other. Perhaps they had a fight.
