Arc Wall Lamp, USD$539: this handsome black walnut and brass lamp is great value. I should know - I took a year to buy 20 light fixtures for my  renovation. It's handmade to order in the USA from Allied Maker.

Urban Archaeology Swing Arm Towel Bar, USD$160: Vintage hardware from Urban Archaeology - a place only open during business hours because you have a decorator. Get it worn from use, but 50% off retail from Barn Light Electric.

Lush Wallpaper USD$200: A vibrant 5 color-way hand-screened print from makelike, a design studio in Portland, Oregon, since 2000. Add some glamor to your walls, or you can frame it to make affordable and moveable big art.


Solid Brass C Hook, USD$12A good, simple hook. I'll use this on the outside of my wardrobe door to hang up clothes to air out. Or, get three and hang them in a row in your entry. From Crown City Hardware.

Brass Label Holders, USD$3-$30: Organize like a Dowager Duchess with some brass label holders. You may not have staff, but it's useful if you have a cleaner, house guests, or to keep yourself in check. Search for card holder brass in Antiques on ebay.
