California designer Shiree Hanson Segerstrom's weekly tips for decorating, gardening, and stylish living

Gone Shopping.






















I love furniture shopping for my clients.  Being a retailer for so many years has given me access to many more products than if I were just a designer.  I found this gold leaf cocktail table amongst the catalogs I ordered from my last trip to the LA Market.  The finish is stunning.


The gold leaf rectangle cocktail table is very good looking in person.  It goes well with interiors that are traditional, modern, or transitional.  Cocktail tables I find, are often too self-conscious.  Manufacturers are trying to reinvent the wheel and in reality the simpler cocktail tables are, the better.






















This mirror is perfect for over a powder room's sink, even if the reflection is somewhat distorted.






















An end table that will "recede into the background" yet provide a little "glam".  It works with retro or modern interiors.






















I am seeing these stools and bench in red silk velvet.






















This dresser can be used as a sideboard in a dining room or a media stand for a flat screen television.





















A classic star burst mirror in gold leaf makes a stunning accent piece in modern, classic interiors.






















 Etagere's are great for stacking books, framed portraits, plants, and favorite mementos you wish to display in a special way.






















If ever there was a perfect coffee table, this would be it.  Classic lines, a gold leaf finish, and two tiers for displaying books and other accessories.






















An adorable end table with gold leaf finish and three tiers of mirrors.  It is another perfectly designed piece.  Minus the plant.

Sconces enhance your architecture like few other accessories.  Use them in pairs to flank a fireplace or an important window, at least two pairs per room.
