- Dec 11, 2015 Christmas in New York
While strolling the streets and taking in the sights of Paris and London, one cannot help but notice the lavish brightly shining gilded ornamentation that is fit for a King or Queen. It's a gilding that exudes royalty and extravagance, be it old or new. Not only found on architectural elements, gilding is brought inside and detailed on furniture. I always love a little gold in a room - be it gilding or brass. It adds a layer of patina in what feels like history. It's shine is pleasing to the eye and inevitably makes that piece more special. Royalty!
