Oh detail, lovely detail..

Hello hello lovely people!
Today when lounging over at the fab Anne Sage's 'City Sage' I came across this picture that stopped me in my tracks. 

Marie Claire Maison via the City Sage

The wonderful monochromatic inspiration of her post aside (yum also for the black cabinet in pic 3!), I fell hard for the way that the little gold ornaments on the left are hung. I really like the irregularity of the base vs the neatness of the top, and how it feeds off the colour and movement in the staircase.  
I can see this way of hanging art working very well in my dining room. Perhaps even in combination with a simple shelf..?! Hmmm.. time to procrastinate... :)

Hugs from the North.

It is a beautiful space and the handrail and banister is so beautiful in its simplicity and delicacy.

Happy weekend to you and the entire W family!
