Malachite

I came across this picture by the decorator Ashleigh Whittaker recently and I loved how she papered the inside of this bar in a malachite print.

Of course after I saw that I was out visiting a few shops and malachite was front and center everywhere. It’s nothing new and designers have abused the beauty out of it but I must say that when it is done well, and in moderation, it really has a big beautiful impact. Here are some things I saw recently…

Liz O’Brien table and mirror

David Duncan had this table in his shop for restoration…he said it belonged to someone in Helena Rubenstein’s family…how chic!

He also had a set of 8 vintage place mats. They are a lot better then the Dransfield one’s I’ve seen.

Here are a bunch of inspiration shots I’ve picked up and love:
