I recently painted one wall in Mr. Bee’s study. Toucan Tango from Clark and Kensington. It may be my new favorite color.
This shelf shows an assortment of old and new things. I found the seltzer bottles at an antique store. The clock on the top shelf belonged to my grandmother. You can see I tried to balance the weight on each shelf with solid dark colors of accessories against the airiness of glass.
These are mostly all Mr. Bee’s collection of books and memorabilia from his English parents. I filled in with some of my family’s things like the black mantel clock and the black marble candle
weapons holders. Mr. Bee has an atlas from when he was in elementary school and he turned a page to the British Isles. I found the faux mother of pearl magnifying glass at HomeGoods.
The globe on the stand belonged to his Uncle Desmond. The other one is circa 1970 and I got it out of the trash at the Goodwill.
I need to find another globe or maybe a decorative box for the empty spot in front of his Grandfather’s Aeronautical Society certificate of membership from the 1920s.
