Beautiful Things - Beautiful Together

This antique clock is beautiful.

The porcelain case painted delicately in pink - a very pink, pink - and the black trim are good accents, the black tones down what could otherwise be a 'too-sweet' pink color. The gilt details add a delicious richness.

Design Tip: This clock could stand on its own on a quaint table in an entryway. Or, it can be part of an great grouping. On a fireplace mantel, for instance, this piece is placed in the center and serves as the focal point. Place two matching objects on the left and right of the clock, cachepots filled with ivy or paperweights, etc. Finally on the far left and right, place matching candlesticks , lamps or vases.This special 19th-century timepiece made by English clock maker John J. Peters & Co. is offered by Coleen & Company, whom also carry their own decor pieces as well as vintage and antique goods. Click here for more info on this one-of-a-kind 'Pretty In Pink' clock.

The curvy gold-framing adds a soupcon of French style to the Petite Palais Mirror, and is available from the Something Beautiful Shoppe.  By repeating the gilt gold and curlyques, the mirror is simply perfect with the clock.

Design Tip: When hanging a mirror always consider what it is reflecting. A mirror that echos a beautiful reflection is most pleasing.

Finally ..... check out this over-the-top chandelier, by Nella Vetrina. Is it awesome, or what?

I would place the antique pink clock and the Petite Palais Mirror in the same room as this Nella Vetrina chandelier.

Design Tip: These colorways work well. The black details on the pink clock - which we've established as a focal point on the fireplace mantle - tie in wonderfully with the strength of this particular chandelier. The Nella Vetrina Chandelier, in black, has an extremely strong 'visual' presence, which greatly attracts the eye, optically causing it to have 'weight' - despite that it is made of glass. Moreover this chandelier's curves, circle shapes, etc. are a repetition of those in the antique clock and the Petit Palais Mirror. These are spectacular when brought together.
