It’s no surprise that I’ve had this ongoing love affair with gold since stepping foot into Kelly Wearstler’s office during my college intern days.
Every morning met with shiny reflective surfaces of polished gold, burnished gold, rose gold, hammered gold, honed gold, gold leaf, gold nuggets, gold brass, everything gilded and just gleaming with perfection.  She was a lover of ALL metallics I soon learned, but just something about that time spent studying under Kelly and working on her myriad of exotic projects that really stuck and still resonates today.

I swore that one of my designs, somewhere, somehow would be bathed in all that glorious light from the wall-to-wall, if not floor-to-ceiling. Alas, I’m all grown up, with my very own place, able to design whatever I please, and you know what’s the first thing that went up?

Yup, you guessed it honey: A gold ceiling fit for this golden era! There’s something to be said about bathing yourself with your favorite colors; instant mood-enhancers if you will, growing in strength over time, and giving off such positive vibes that seep into your everyday life.
