I first spotted these “seeds” on a wall in a Christmas show house here in NOLA a couple years ago and fell in love. Though I am not a huge fan of modern art, the installation of a grouping of “seeds” looked very elegant and very French. I was so happy to spot these at a couple of my favorite NOLA shops recently.
I have been wanting something on the wall in the stair parlor that leads to the rear of the house. This wall is difficult because the entrance is arched and the stairs are directly above. I knew that the “seeds” would be a perfect art piece for this area.
After purchasing the “seeds” from local Judy at the Rink (Thanks, Kay!)last week, I finally had the time to install the “seeds”. I chose an “organic” arrangement rather than a symmetrical one. My mind usually works with symmetry but with the placement of the chandelier and the view, I felt an asymmetrical arrangement would be best. Each “seed” screws into the wall quite easily.
I love the way the “seeds” display turned out.
The “seeds” are gold-leafed on the inside which gives a great glow at night.
They are called “seeds” from the vendor. They look more like cracked eggs to me. They are available in several colors.
“Seeds” are called Wall Play and are by Gold Leaf Design.
The “seeds” give an elegant and modern look to my classic decor.
