decorative objets friday




From the fantazmic apartment of legendary decorateur Thomas Britt. (Ulterior motive: I wanted to snag the following quote from NYSD's interview with Mr. Britt - it spoke to me.) "His apartment was Parisian-opulent, full of flair and confidence, the very opposite of the horrible, dull linearity that seems to have a stranglehold at the moment." Dull linearity. Nicely done.

Enjoy these. And happy weekend, everyone.

On the marble mantel, a pair of raspberry-colored Chinese vases from Charles Heilemann flank a Ming Foo dog from Nuri Farhadi antiques:
