Ralph Lauren Tudric Pewter


I am absolutely nuts over this New Orleans home, rebuilt after Hurricane Katrina and stylishly refurnished with an amazingly small amount of money.   



Karina Gentinetta painted several antique pieces in her home, including the secretary above, Ralph Lauren Tudric Pewter.



The french-style headboard, above, which Karina had made then upholstered herself, is also painted Tudric Pewter.

makes me want to try it out...

Check out the piece on this home in  The New York Times.

Thanks to Nelya and Artie who first made me swoon with these photos.
