Works in Any Room: Gold Wall Sculpture



It's everywhere and after the design world being so saturated with gallery walls, 
I love the idea of a single, jaw-dropping piece...






tucked in alongside a mirror...






used as a punctuation point over a sofa...






They're not on the walls, but Michael Bruno likes these sculptural gold trees enough
to have one in both his Paris apartment and home in the Hamptons...






If you have the room in your budget,
heaps of these iconic Curtis Jere pieces can be found on his site, 1st dibs...

or maybe one of these beauties works for you -
I love, love, love the top one - so graceful..



buy 1 2 3


craving something more unusual?

weekend diy idea:
an entire wall of gold metal discs -
how gorgeous is that?

I'd love to do this as on headboard wall...







This clever sculpture gave me so many ideas...
it's made from foam core board and paint!

Amazing, right?

Check out the tutorial -
Jeremy's diy tessellation from Apartment Therapy



    



What do you think?


Want one?!





Iv'e been working on the desk a little this week-
hoping to finish it this weekend.

this is what I'm up against...




three layers of stain! Madness!



Happy Weekend :)

Get this--My dad has one of those flying bird sculptures on his wall and I just recently asked if I could have it! These pieces are truly stunning. Good luck with your desk this weekend!

What GORGEOUS inspitartion pics! I have a pair of gold leaf wall sconces from the 60s that were my grandmothers--more regency than brutalist--that I'm trying to find the right spot for. Gold is my favorite color, for sure.

I'm kind of obsessed with gold wall-sculptures. I'm on the hunt for the perfect one.

The gold DIY project looks so amazing. My walls are bare, so I need find something to put on them ASAP. Maybe I will try my hand at the DIY.

The picture of the wall of shimmer is really cool. I wonder what it would look like as a backsplash?
Good luck with the desk!

Love this post. I have been contemplating a Jere sculpture for a long while. That image with the gold starburst and gold table is one of my all time favourites. If I could find that...
