My Design Tips

a hint of gold ...

A touch of gold or gilt adds an element of warmth and style to any interior.  It looks best I believe, where the palette of colours used is minimal or neutral.

There are no hard and fast rules for the placement of gilt mirrors except to say, the larger the better.

This palette of colours and textures works like a dream.  Gilt ... furniture or mirrors, adds a touch of elegance ... or even faded glory !!

For all your restoration requirements ... whether it be regilding mirrors and picture frames or conserving your Old Masters, it is worth speaking to International Conservation Services who have a very impressive portfolio.
