fine details

A set of Match pewter place settings arrived this week giving us an eight place setting.  So pleased to use & touch these beautiful objects daily.

Of course they work great with the Match serving plate we received from my cousin Allyson.

And the beautiful pieces of Astier de Villate we received. 

 I use the platter often 

and love most the (non-oft used) fluted bowl.

Two new pieces are below.  

John Derian has paired with Astier de Villatte to ensure that there is more to covet.

This is a perfect reason to use hardware that you love in your home.  It's not an afterthought.  It's your jewelry.  Something to touch and admire often.  
Beautiful knobs:

Anything from Nanz:

Restoration pieces:

Often Rejuventaion hardware will do what is needed to pull a project together:

2" Ball-Tip Cabinet Hinges: Solid Brass

Beauty is in the details.

Some pretty house shots

Thank you to Jim Sowden for taking some lovely & much deserved pictures of my house!  Looking pretty good, if I do say so myself.  

Why is my list of decor wants growing at the same pace that I crave paring down and getting rid?   That push and pull is constant in our lives as consumers.  However, it is satisfying and necessary to sit back and enjoy what you have every once in a while.
