i spy: fancy pants.
sometimes, i like a little bit of what i like to call ‘fancy pants’ around the house. not a lot, mind you, but styling with some glam gilded gold accent pieces, a tufted baroque looking little settee, or an unexpected chandelier can create some nice contrast to vintage-modern, or mid-century pieces, such as in the image above of mikel irastorza’s home. i love the juxtaposition of a gold leaf sculpture paired with an antique french farm table, and some bertoia chairs. brilliant! a splash of glam is almost slightly amusing, and adds a bit of humor, or kitsch to a room. and i like a room that doesn’t take itself too seriously. this week i spy fancy pants!
