Sometimes while thrifting, a style calls my attention. This time the attention was on lattice and filigree details. These details can work within classic, contemporary, or ethnic decor. Depending on their finish - hi gloss lacquered, bright glossy colors, natural wood, or metallic finishes - you can create a space with a Hollywood Regency style to a Marrakesh retreat. It's all in the details... Below are some ideas from my clippings & style files (found online, in magazines, and through retailers) to help get you started or inspire...
