Over at Guilt Gilt Group there's a sale on Jardins en Fleur accessories - a segment of their line of Asian French influences rendered in bright ceramics. If you love the items below, be sure to visit the company website, which offers hand painted silks and some stunning furniture. I'm really a fan of their pieces; aside from the silks and wallpaper, most of their creations have a strongly zen aesthetic, relying on form and function rather than pattern. If you've been reading this blog for any time at all, you know I have nothing against pattern, but sublimely simple pieces are essential for balance in any room.
A Jardins en Fleur still life.
I'm loving this nesting set of lotus plates in cinnabar - how fabulous for parties? $83 for 3.
A glass glazed finish garden stool - fashioned to serve as a seat or a plant holder (but not actually for outdoor use - natch).
Try it with an orchid or a pile of gorgeous books.
Foo dogs in a gorgeous cream glaze to add a bit of whimsy to your hall table or vanity.
They abide by the Basic Principle of Dog Appeal: if it's ugly, it's cute.
