See How They Wrap: Rebecca Vizard
Whenever I see a present wrapped by textile collector Rebecca Vizard, I want to start over and cover the gifts I'm giving with burnished gold. Like her pillows, Vizard's packages tend to be extremely refined. Antique gold tissue paired with muted ribbon seems to be her trademark.
The present above is embellished with one of her embroidered mini stockings made from a vintage suzani fragment. (Don't miss other examples of her elegant stockings in the December House Beautiful. Jennifer Dwyer, a.k.a. The Peak of Chic produced it!)
A very grown-up golden moc croc box is found beneath the tissue. In addition to her popular stockings, Vizard is making small hearts from her prettiest textile remnants.
These ethno-chic examples could be used as ornaments on a tree or during Valentine's. I know I'll be thinking of an unexpected way to use them in February. Stay tuned for details to come at bviz.com. To see some behind the scenes views of Rebecca's studio, click here.
