I love the translucent striations in the stone and how each piece is unique. The second pair has striations on the horizontal instead of vertical with dark tan accents.
The only problem with bookends is that, when they are fulfilling their destiny as bookends, you can't really see them in their full glory.
You see? All you see is the front of their, albeit handsome, heads. Do you have bookends on your bookshelves or in your decor? How do you arrange them? I was pondering this dilemma (I know there are bigger, more important issues in the world but it is a dilemma) when I came across 47 Park Avenue. OMG! The extreme fabulousness!

I am entranced with the hits of pink. Bold without being sickly sweet. Do you notice the horse heads on the mantel? I love the depth and layers on the mantelscape. Lining things in.a.row. is a trap that I fall into over and over again. I am really trying these days to be a bit more brave and daring with my decor.
Not as outrageously fabulous as 47 Park Avenue, admittedly, but at least now I can enjoy the horse heads more fully. I have quite a few thrifted vintage knick knacks on that tallboy dresser including a Royal Krona of Sweden owl and a modernist Hoselton angel that I thrifted recently. The gigantic round eyes of the owl make me laugh and I like to imagine that the angel is watching over me. Coincidentally, Pantone announced the colour of the year as Radiant Orchid. So quite by chance, I've managed to cover the bases on two trends this year! Are you planning on incorporating any purple in your decor this year! Or do you stay away from trends?
This week I'm linking up with A Stroll Thru Life, Remnant PDX, Sir Thrift A Lot, A Living Space, and The Thrifty Groove.
