Try This at Home

After a string of warm days last week we had snow yesterday, but I am still hopefull for an early and long Spring this year. Here is a simple and beautiful mantle arrangement by designer Benjamin Dhong that is perfect for the season.

You could recreate this vignette on a console table against a wall as well as on a mantle. Start with the mirror...

Recycled glass has a lot of character. I like this footed vase.

Ask you florist for flowering quince branches.

Crystals are believed by some to have metaphysical powers. I recommend buying them solely for their decorative benefits.

  1. Dear Phyllis - Being quite new to the blog world, I am delighted to have just discovered your blog. It is just as stylish and pretty as your boards on Pinterest!! I love your recent post on conservatories and orangeries---thank you for the clarification. I never knew. BTW, I also planted a moonflower vine last year, and waited all summer for it to grow. It finally bloomed....for one short week! Looking forward to following your blog!! Loi - toneontoneantiques.blogspot.com

  2. Thank you, Loi; I am very flattered! And, likewise. My current goal is to make it to Tone on Tone before the year is out. All best, Phyllis
    P.S. my pre-Pinterest binder also contains a 6-page, September 2008 Trad Home story on your house in DC. :-)

  3. This is so beautiful, simply beautiful. xx's
