shiny black gorgeousness for your mantel or tablescape a la david hicks:

i spent some time perusing the new david hicks book yesterday and was amazed at how every single room he ever designed looks completely modern and relevant. and i see the influence in all of our favorite designers working today. from KW to miles redd to charlotte moss to your mother. if u have the xtra 60 bucks lying around i would say it's a sound investment.

and also this room by emma jane pilkington (best name ever) is my new favorite:
