All that glitters…

So oogling those pics of The Savoy yesterday brought to mind the incredible gold leaf wall treatments in their Beaufort Bar.  Smashing, no?

    I love the ceiling but the staircase is a little extreme..! And if you keep buying stuff our place will look like the staircase too.

  2. A gilded touch is never a bad idea. I absolutely adore this decor, Elly. I’m not sure if I would use it for my space – I’m more into the pastel or Moroccan vibe at the moment – but I do love how grand it is. Reminds me a bit of the 1920s! 🙂

    I think in certain contexts, a little bit of Midas’s touch can look really plush and luxurious. Love these inspirations, they really suit the decor and colour schemes. I appreciate your visit hun, hope your week is going well!

  4. Oh god yes. I love OTT gold (well, okay we’re not talking crazy trashy Goldmember ala Mike Meyers gold) but shimmery walls and ceilings in tasteful settings? Dreamy. That shimmery Chinoiserie mural in the bathroom? Want. xxx
