Style Elements is a special section where I feature photos I take of objects that capture my eye in people’s homes or in public spaces.
I love fresh flowers in homes. It shows that people take the time to bring something new
and pretty into their lives to have even for just a few days.
An antique General Electric fan with a heavy ass base.
A French chandelier with a story.
An Arco Lamp with the backdrop of the antique fan and reflective candle holder.
An Eames-era copper-plated carafe, reportedly from Ebay.
Freshly-bloomed potted orchid with the backdrop of a football game on TV.
What is an Asian home without a buddha? I believe this one is Siddhartha Gautama from India,
who owns one of my favorite quotes: “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
Flowers in the bathroom is another thing that makes me smile.
It draws the attention away from everything else and creates a sense of beauty and calm
in your bath and toilet area.
A framed trio of photos from Napa and Sonoma Valley, California.
A vintage school clock bolted to the wall is a good accent for this home’s high ceilings.
As you can see, I love this clock, a treasure found on Ebay.
