Gilded Wood Beams and Fireplace Logs

Cool Idea: Go For the Gold

Anthology magazine's sophomore issue is due out soon and there's a sneak preview live online now to tease us. The feature I'm most excited to read is the tour of the San Diego home of stylist Kelly Lilien of the wildly popular style blog Mrs. Lilien. I absolutely love everything Kelly produces and there's no doubt in my mind that her home is an enchanting place.

From just this glimpse into her home (left), I can already spot some serious creativity. To put her own "Mrs." spin on her 1930s Spanish bungalow, Kelly gilded the wood beams in her living room, and then moved onto the fireplace logs! "The space was screaming for something super special," she explains. "There was a need for a pièce de résistance. Once I realized how magical it was, I kept going." If that's not enchanting, I don't know what is.
