Asian

The little train that could

Today’s installment is a little guy in Wesley Chapel. Not really “little”, it was over 3,000 sf. So you would think with all of that space, the decorators could have filled it with a biiig pool of happiness. Not to be, my friends. Good chairs and some good detail, but not much else.  Sad. Let’s go down on this bitch and see how we feel.

I enjoy the small rain sticks on the coffee table. There were a few Asian influences like these scattered around, but not enough to make me dry heave. This little table (below) is a rock star. Love the curves.

The last picture was really my favorite thing. It’s the wax seals that people used back in the day. You had a long wax stick and an ornate metal die. They were usually a family seal or an initial. For scale, the shadowbox is 8 x 10, so that should give you a sense of the size of the wax blobs. As far as I’m concerned, these wax thingies are the only reason to go old school and write a letter.

Love the dining chairs. I’ve saved the best for last, though. Check out these juicy sweet cornices!!!

Yes, please.
