Mixed Metals 

I'm always attracted to the look of mixed metals. There is something so earthy, yet sophisticated, about the palette, whether it's gold/silver, coppers/bronzes, or any mix of elements in between.  This bar scape is  a photograph taken from Jenna Lyons home. I love the contrast of the charcoal walls with burnished gold accents.

In my own home I enjoy playing with different tableaus on my dressing table-

Oh hello George Clooney!

He popped up as a 'like' on my Pinterest board so I thought it would be nice to share a random George Clooney sighting. George is almost exactly my age and I like that about him. Interestingly, I didn't get the hype on his ER days but now that he has a little "mixed metals" going on in his hair (as do I) I find him much more intriguing..............

Or maybe it has something to do with his Lake Como lake house in Italy.
